England women clinched the third and final one-dayer against Australia by seven wickets in Perth.

Two down in the series and chasing 213 to win, Charlotte Edwards hit the winning run to finish unbeaten on 48 as the tourists won with two overs left.

Lydia Greenway was awarded player of the match for her 59 and Lisa Sthalekar top scored for the hosts with 60.

Isa Guha struck twice in the first seven overs, while four run-outs accounted for the Australia tail.

Laura Marsh also enjoyed a fine spell with the ball, ending with figures of 1-23 from her lean 10 overs.

But it was Greenaway and Edwards' efforts with the bat that helped England to their consolation win at the Waca.

Following bright starts from openers Heather Knight and Danielle Wyatt, Greenway maintained the high tempo and found the boundary at will.

Charging Shelley Nitschke's first ball and hitting over the top for four, Greenway hit a pair of sweetly timed reverse sweeps to the ropes as she overtook her batting partner Knight. The fifty partnership arrived soon after.

The pair had put on 66 when Knight became the second wicket to fall, caught by Farrell as she attempted to hit Lisa Sthalekar over the top.

In-form Edwards joined Greenway at the crease and shortly after the latter's exit, the skipper knocked off the winning run.

England next play five Twenty20 internationals, starting at Adelaide on Wednesday and round off the tour with a Test match in Sydney on 22 January.
