Australia Women and England Women are set to lock horns in the second game of the three-match T20I series in the Women's Ashes on Saturday, January 22. Adelaide Oval will host the encounter.

Australia, led by Meg Lanning, got off to a thunderous start in the series after winning the opening game by nine wickets on January 20 at the same venue. The Aussies also recorded their highest-ever run-chase in the format, having chased down 170 in just 17 overs.

After being put in to bat first, England put up a competitive score of 169/4 on the board. Opener Danni Wyatt came to the party as she top-scored with a 54-ball 70, laced with six fours and three sixes. Tammy Beaumont and Nat Sciver also got useful scores in the 30s.

Tahlia McGrath was the pick of the Aussie bowlers with three wickets for only 26 runs on an excellent batting surface. Alana King, who made her international debut on Thursday after impressing for the Perth Scorchers in the WBBL, got the wicket of Beaumont, who was looking ominous.

Australia lost Alyssa Healy early in their run-chase as Sophie Ecclestone gave England their first breakthrough. From there on, Lanning and McGrath's unbeaten 144-run stand took the hosts over the finish line. After showing her prowess with the ball, McGrath smashed an unbeaten 49-ball 91.
