England Women fell just short as reigning champions Australia sealed a five-run semi-final victory in Delhi.

The Southern Stars have beaten their Ashes rivals in the last two World T20 finals and once again had enough, defending a total of 132 for six built around captain Meg Lanning's 55.

England were going well at 89 for one in the 14th over, Tammy Beaumont top-scoring with 32, but not for the first time in the competition lost wickets in cluster as the pressure mounted, to finish 127 for seven.

They needed 13 off the final over to get over the line but could not muster a single boundary as Rene Farrell closed out the win.
