Australia Women beat England Women A by 101 runs in a preparation game ahead of the three Ashes One-Day Internationals.

The match, at Wellington College, was interrupted by rain but Australia dominated proceedings and won comfortably on the Duckworth/Lewis method.

Meg Lanning (61) and Alyssa Healy (41) started well for the tourists before Jess Cameron (31) and Alex Blackwell (26) also chipped in as Australia closed on an imposing 306 for six in their 50 overs.

Ellyse Perry also hit a quickfire 38 and Erin Osborne made 40.

Due to the rain, England A were then set 226 to win in 30 overs but were never to threaten the target as Perry struck early and then further breakthroughs from Julie Hunter, Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen, who all took two wickets, held England A to just 124 for nine in their innings.

Sarah Coyte and Osborne also picked up a wicket.

The first of three Ashes ODIs is at Lord's on Tuesday 20th August.
