Beth Mooney and Annabel Sutherland Speak After Loss
Australia has lost its opening match of the CommBank T20 INTL Tri-Series at Manuka Oval, with England sneaking home in a Super Over.
Chasing England's 4-156, Australia was staring down the barrel of a loss with the score 7-117 after 17 overs needing another 40 runs to claim victory.
Opener Beth Mooney played a relatively lone hand with 65 off 45 balls, before debutante Annabel Sutherland led a late fightback.
Sutherland's unbeaten 22 off 11 balls was instrumental in Australia leveling the scores and sending the match to a Super Over.
Australia sent Alyssa Healy (2*) and Ashleigh Gardner (5*) out for the Super Over, with the pair scoring eight runs between them.
Perry took the ball for the Super Over but couldn't stop England captain Heather Knight who saw her side home with nine runs off three balls.
Knight posted a half-century earlier in the day during England's batting innings, with Perry conceding just nine runs off her four overs.
