England Out Of World Cup

Defending champions England have been dumped out of cricket's Women's World Cup.

England went into the final round of Super Six matches needing to beat New Zealand and hope the West Indies lose to Australia.

England's hopes were boosted when Australia, who were already assured of a place in the final, needed 35 runs from their final ten overs with six wickets remaining to reach their target of 165 for victory.

But Australia lost their remaining wickets for just 26 runs to fall nine short and hand victory to the West Indies.

The win means that regardless of the result between England and New Zealand in Mumbai, the Caribbean side will play in their first ever Women's World Cup final.
