Ashleigh Gardner hit an unbeaten 32-ball 66 and then took two for 20 with her off-breaks as Australia Women thrashed India Women by 54 runs in the fifth and final T20I at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Pacer Heather Graham took four wickets for just eight runs as India were bowled out for 142 in reply to Australia’s 196 for 4. The comprehensive victory was an icing on the cake for Australia as they won the series 4-1.
