England celebrate World Cup win

England players celebrate

England's women's cricket team have won the world cup in Australia after beating New Zealand in the final.

England bowled the Kiwis out for 166 runs, and chased down the winning score pretty easily in the end.

Player of the match Nicky Shaw scored the winning runs to secure England women's third World Cup victory - the first for 16 years.

It's been an amazing season for the team. Last year they won the Ashes after beating Australia at home.
