England win on a super over

Heather Knight starred as England beat Australia in a super over to get their first victory of the T20 tri-series.

The England captain scored a career-best 78 to help her side to 156-4, only for some late hitting to get Australia to the same score after 20 overs.

After the hosts had scored 8-0 in the super over, Knight hit two boundaries as England won with two balls to spare.

England return to action against India on Friday (03:10 GMT).

Before that, however, Australia will face India (Sunday, 03:00), who beat England in the opening game of the tournament on Friday.
