Aussies credit bowling brilliance

Australia's Alex Blackwell "can't speak highly enough" of their bowling attack as they dismiss the West Indies for 145 to win the World Cup final by 114 runs.

Pace bowler Ellyse Perry took a wicket in each of her first three overs to derail the chase after "good runs" from Rachael Haynes and Jess Cameron had helped the Aussies to 259-7.

Blackwell says Australian women's cricket is now in "a good place" having added the 50-over title to the World Twenty20 they won in October and the Ashes.
