I didn't see any of this but it sounds like it was a Meg Lanning exhibition 133* from just 63 balls!  She was quiet in the test, but made up for it today :)
I'll admit I was concerned as England have succesfully chased a record total before, and this game being played at England's 'Fortress' Chelmsford, where they have never been beaten in T20.  Quite an achievement girls!
They were super keen to avoid a repeat the previous ashes tie, and have now officially retained the ashes.

Aus take the second T20 in convincing style to go 12-2 up.
I thought they were pretty ordinary in the field, with Mooney dropping a couple sitters, and Healy putting one down as well, but did very well to hold England to 8/121
Despite losing early wickets, Lanning 43* and Perry 47* took complete control for a 7 wicket win.

Lanning showed brilliant control in batting to what the situation required.  After her swashbuckling last innings, she was happy to put away the big shots and do what was required to win the game and finish not out.  A true captain's performance.

An amazing milestone came up as Ellyse Perry became the first person (male or female) to bring up 1000 T20I runs and 100 T20I wickets.  That is an amazing achievement!

Ive watched a few bits,,and the England women are pretty dire
I know theres a lot more money thrown into the womens game these days, with central contracts etc
But from what Ive seen,they are light years away from the Aussies

The scorelines seem to indicate that, but I can't help but think that if Beaumont and/or Wyatt have a day on, it could all change very quickly as they both have the skills to take the game away from you. 
Beaumont was agressive and despite a couple lucky ones, looked comfortable until trying to reverse sweep a yorker

Perry is actually one hell of a cricketer, wonder how she would go in Aus grade cricket.

Well, it had to happen.  With every game you are getting closer to ending your losing / winning streak, and England refused to be kept down, and win the final T20 to record their first Ashes win, but lose the series 12-4.

After posting a competetive 5/139, the England girls bowled well, and Aus never really looked like making the runs.  Perry brilliant as always with 60* from 50, but couldn't find a partner to stay with her, as England kept the wickets tumbling.  Eccleston great with 3/22 and Brunt came good with 3/21 and 25* to take player of the match award, as Aus came up 17 runs short.

Ellyse Perry's stats for this Ashes series are almost beyond comprehension.  I haven't heard anything about player of the series, but surely this performance is it.
Leading run scorer with 378 runs @ 94.5
Leading wicket taker with 15 @ 12.86
1 century, 3 fifties
Best Bowling 7/22

Well done to all the girls on a well fought series!

@RPC/Blueroom Cricket - Adie the question is, where do we find a better group of players from?
The English domestic game isn't anywhere near as strong as the Australian set up, and the difference it makes is becoming clear.

While changes to the system appear necessary, it won't be an overnight fix.

All very valid .. sadly, there are people paid a lot of money who should be sorting this out. The fact they fail but still draw wages is another problem

I don't see that changing the players or the coach is going to make any difference.  The only question to be asked is whether the ECB is prepared to give the same financial backing to womens cricket in this county as Cricket Australia does in theirs and, even then, it will take years for that to filter through into a larger group of players. And for all that, take Ellyse Perry out of the Aussie side and put her into the England one and I say that England wins that series.  No shame in losing to the best female player to have played the game
