Defending champions Australia will face England in the women's World Twenty20 final after cruising past the West Indies by 28 runs yesterday.

Seamer Julie Hunter claimed 5-22 as Australia, restricted to 115-7 after electing to bat, shot the West Indies out for 87 in the semi-final at the Premadasa stadium in Colombo.

Lisa Sthalekar marked her 50th T20 international with a top score of 23 and then conceded just six runs in her four overs to help Hunter fashion Australia’s emphatic win.
