England secured their first win of the T20 tri-series with a thrilling Super Over victory over Australia.

Captain Heather Knight turned the star of the match, reaching 78 off of 45 balls and hitting two boundaries in the Super Over to secure the win.

England posted a strong 156-4, but world champions Australia forced a Super Over with Beth Mooney hitting 65 off 45.

"It was an amazing game of cricket," said Knight. "I thought we'd won it then I thought we'd lost it, and it's credit to Australia for taking it to a Super Over."
