    Well there were a few nerves around the Aussie camp when Sri Lanka were 75-1 at the halfway stage of their innings, but the bowlers pulled it back and Villani and Lanning made the run chase look very easy.

    Australia play already eliminated Ireland here on Saturday and a win could set up a possible semi-final again in Delhi against most likely England.

    Whoever they play Australia would be at a big advantage having played two games here at the Feroz kotla and also having avoided the week of travel their opponents will have had.

    While Australia stay here in Delhi England for example will have travelled from Dharamsala to Chennai and then to Delhi  

  3. AUSTRALIA BEAT SRI LANKA BY 9 WICKETS

    A superb batting display from Australia captain Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani was all it took for Australia to meet Sri Lanka's target of 123.

    That victory puts them second in their group behind New Zealand, leapfrogging South Africa.

  4. Villani sweep earns four more for Australia

    Elyse Villani brings out the sweep to power home another boundary for Australia. The writing is beginning to look like it's on the wall for Sri Lanka now.

    Meg Lanning showing now why she is one of the best players in the women’s game.

    She has looked in no trouble and is leading Australia to a victory which would put their tournament challenge back on track.

  6. Australia partnership gathering pace

    Lanning and Villani turning the screw on Sri Lanka now. The skipper opens the face of the bat to steer home another boundary. 

    Shortly after her partner serves up her own. Ominous.

  7. Aus 63-1

    Starting to look very comfortable for Lanning and Villani.  The Sri Lanka spinners being milked for runs at the moment and not able to put the Southern Stars under any pressure.

  8. Australia 31-1

    Skipper Meg Lanning hits her first boundary of the match as she aims to steady the ship for Australia.

    No 4-4 today, Healy and Vilani take 13 from first two overs, although Healy has survived a stumping review.

  12. Australia 11-0

    And Villani starts the second over as she finished the last, striking clean for four. Textbook stuff.

    Southern Stars opener Alyssa Healy is 26 years old today. Wonder if Uncle Ian has sent her a cake?

  14. Australia 7-0

    Villani scores Australia's first boundary of the innings after a thick edge sees the ball trickle away from the chasing fielder. Australia 7-0 off the first over.

  16. Healy and Villani open for Australia

    Australia 0-0 - target 123

    Alyssa Healy and Elyse Villani open for Australia as they target 123. Game on.

  17. Sri Lanka 123-8

    So, Australia will target 123 as Sri Lanka wrap up their innings. A busy final over saw three wickets tumble in quick succession. Being kind, we've cut them all in one clip for you...

    Sri Lanka may be disappointed with 123-8 after being 75-1 in the 11th over

    They lost 3 wickets in the last over.

    But it could still be a testing target , especially for a batting line up short on confidence after being 4-4 against New Zealand on Monday.
