Nat Sciver-Brunt hands Australia their first ODI series defeat since 2013

Sciver-Brunt followed her unbeaten 111 off 99 balls on Sunday in Southampton, where Australia won by thee runs, with a pivotal innings of 129 as the hosts prevailed in a rain-affected final game. She shared a 147-run stand for the third wicket with Heather Knight to rescue England from a perilous 12 for 2 and, along with Danni Wyatt‘s rapid-fire 43 off 25 balls, helped lift the hosts to 285 for 9. It was their joint-second-highest ODI total against Australia, who originally needed to produce their second-highest successful 50-over run chase to win until rain halted play for nearly an hour during their pursuit and forced a revised target of 269 from 44 overs.
