Australia have won the last three womens World T20 finals, beating England by four runs in the 2012 final and earning a six-wicket victory in the 2014 showpiece in Dhaka. Australia beat England by six wickets in the 2014 womens World T20 final The Southern Stars also beat England in last summers multi-format Womens Ashes series although Edwards side have won two of the last three T20 matches between the sides. Asked if Australia would start the match as favourites, Edwards told Sky Sports News HQ: Yeah without a doubt. Theyve won the last three tournaments and they obviously beat us in the summer so they are huge favourites for tomorrow. Australia won the womens Ashes in England last summer But we know when we are at our best we can beat them. We have the belief we can do that but they have got a lot of things in their favour at the moment - they have played here before - but tomorrow is going to be a huge game between two massive teams and its one Im sure all the players are looking forward to. Theyve won the last three tournaments and they obviously beat us in the summer so they are huge favourites for tomorrow. England skipper Charlotte Edwards England played in the north of India in Dharamsala on Friday before travelling to Chennai in the deep south for Sundays win over Pakistan, and only arrived in Delhi late on Monday. Edwards hit 77 off 61 balls in Englands win over Pakistan By contrast, Australias last two matches have been in Delhi but Edwards is not fazed by the travelling, preferring to focus on the quality of the pitch for Wednesdays eagerly anticipated encounter.We knew the schedule when we got out here, she said. We knew it would be pretty tough but were looking forward to a great contest tomorrow.I think its going to be a little bit quicker than some of the pitches we have played on so far in this competition, which is a good thing. From what I hear its probably one of the better pitches in the tournament so hopefully that will be the same for tomorrow as well. Charlotte Edwards flanked by Heather Knight (l) and Katherine Brunt (r) at the 2015 Sportswomen of the Year Awards Edwards was one of nine England players that took part in the Womens Big Bash League in Australia over the winter, but she says the bond forged with several of the Southern Stars players will count for nothing come game time.Were frenemies tomorrow, she saidIve played with a lot of them all winter but when you step over the line and play for your country its England v Australia and all of that goes out of the window.It was be fiercely competitive on the pitch between two teams that massively want to get into the World Cup final in Calcutta, which would be one of the best days of our lives. Thats what we are all looking forward to tomorrow. Also See: England set up Aussie semi Tash Farrant blog David Willey column Morgan stunned by England rise Justin Upton Jersey . It will then be back to business once the puck drops as the two clubs battle for key points in their respective playoff races. Watch the game live on TSN Canadiens and listen on TSN Radio 690 starting at 7:30pm et. Andrew Heaney Jersey . -- Kevin Stadler might be playing in the Masters for the first time, but hes already showing his old man a thing or two. .Y. - Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs didnt flinch in the face of adversity.VANCOUVER - The stat sheet for Luca Sbisa wasnt pretty after the Vancouver Canucks last outing.This one looked a whole lot better.The defenceman rebounded from Fridays minus-5 showing in a 7-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche by scoring his first goal with the Canucks on Sunday as Vancouver topped the Washington Capitals 4-2.That was a rough night, Sbisa said of the game in Colorado. I didnt have the best sleep after that. Im not gonna lie, I was thinking a lot about that game and I knew (Sunday) was a big game for me and for the team.Sbisa blasted a shot through traffic at 15:47 of the second period for Vancouvers third goal in a 1:47 span to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead.Every time I score it feels good — the past few years it hasnt happened that much so its even more special, said Sbisa, who joined the Canucks this summer as part of the deal that sent Ryan Kesler to the Anaheim Ducks. The day you get traded or you join a new team its one thing you look forward to, getting that first goal out of the way.Im glad it was tonight.Nick Bonino and Radim Vrbata added a goal and an assist each for Vancouver (5-3-0), while Henrik Sedin also scored.Bonino was also acquired in the Kesler deal and helped set up Sbisas goal after giving the Canucks the lead just 25 seconds earlier.(Sbisa) is a great player, said Bonino. He plays really physical and I think he gets the short end of the stick a lot, but all year hes been that physical presence and it was good to especially be on the ice with him when he got that one. It was a great shot.Chris Higgins chipped in with two assists for Vancouver, and Ryan Miller made 20 saves for his fifth win of the season.Miller had to be especially strong midway through the third period, stopping successive shots from John Carlson and another from Alex Ovechkin on a power play.Vancouver was notorious for giving up late leads last season, but stood firm on Sunday.I thought we defended pretty well, said Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins. Its hard because theyre always going to take some chances offensively and they may get a few chances out of that, but Miller came up with a couple big saves.Marcus Johansson and Liam OBrien — with his first in the NHL — had the goals for Washington (4-2-2), while Mike Green added two assists.It was a great feeling to score my first goal but it would have been even better if we would have got the win tonight, said OBrien, who made the Capitals on a tryout this season.Justin Peters, starting in place of No. 1 goalie Braden Holtby, finished with 30 stops for Washington.That was probably our poorest game in terms of puck management and puck protectioon, said Capitals head coach Barry Trotz, whose team downed the Calgary Flames 3-1 a night earlier. Mike Trout Jersey. We turned over way too many pucks, gave up way too many odd-man rushes just by puck management.After a scoreless first period where the Canucks carried the play but came up empty, the teams exploded for five goals in the second.Johansson opened the scoring at 5:28, beating Miller with a shot glove side after taking a cross-ice feed from Andre Burakovsky for his third of the season.Vancouver tied it up when Henrik Sedin squeaked a shot through Peters at the side of the net on a power play with six minutes to go in the period for his fourth before Bonino ripped his third high over Peters glove at 15:22.Youve got to support the Sedins, said Bonino. They score every game and with that secondary scoring, if we can all contribute and get three or four goals a night like we have been, usually were going to win games.Sbisa then stretched the Canucks lead to two with his first point with his new team, a goal Peters thought he should have stopped.I just tried to battle and fight for the guys and they got a little momentum there in the second period, said Peters. I really wanted to have that third goal and nip it in the bud and settle it down.Thats the difference in the game.OBrien then opened his NHL account by deflecting a pass from the slot in front of Miller at 17:18 for Washingtons second of the night to cut Vancouvers advantage to 3-2.The Capitals turned up the heat late in the third, but Carlson went off for delay of game with 1:38 remaining, and Vancouver killed the game off when Vrbata scored his fifth into an empty net with just over a minute to go.I think some of us were moving well but some of us were not ready, and maybe tired, maybe just was mentally not ready, said Ovechkin. But we have to figure out what we have to do to be mentally ready for back-to-backs.Vancouver was playing its third game in four nights and nearly had a dream start when Carlson turned the puck over to Vrbata for a great chances just 30 seconds into the game. Linden Vey and Jannik Hansen also had golden opportunities in the opening 20 minutes.(Peters) kept us in, said Trotz. He was the star of the game in the first period. He needed some support tonight and he didnt get it.Notes: The Capitals allowed more than 30 shots for the first time this season. ...
