Australia secured a 68-run win in its second and final warm-up match ahead of the opening match of the Ashes on Tuesday in Leicester. 

The Aussies posted 5-337 with captain Meg Lanning leading the way with an impressive half-century and cruised to a 68-run win over the England Academy team.

Ash Gardner was also in the mix of the top performers with her 31-ball innings of 59no that featured five sixes while Alyssa Healy also made the half-century mark during the warm-up match. 

Heading into the first ODI, all Australian batters in the top seven have made at least 50 runs. 

Gardner said those results are a confidence booster going 

"It helps to have warm-up games in these conditions and knowing that we that we have scored runs and have a good total on the board always helps going into that first ODI," she said.

"We're all in a really good headspace and are thinking positively going to that first ODI."

Australia traveled to Lecister on Saturday and will continue preparations ahead of their first ODI.
