Now the break begins for the players with a six-week leave period, giving them a much-needed break from a whirlwind six months. 

Australia began their 2018/19 season with a clean sweep against New Zealand in a T20I Series in September before heading over to Kuala Lumpur to face Pakistan in three ODIs and T20Is as preparation for the 2018 Women's World T20. 

"I think everyone is ready for a break. Everyone wanted to make sure we finished off on a good note, we didn't want to head into our break with the last game being a loss so it's nice to be able to tick that off," captain Meg Lanning said.

"There are a few exhausted players at the moment and coaching staff, to be honest, they've put in a lot of effort to help us to be able to do the job we do.

"As a collective, we are ready for a few days off."

The team will be back together soon enough as they prepare for the Ashes which sees them play three ODI, a Test and three T20Is matches against England, with the first game on July 2 in Leicester. 

Australia will then play the West Indies and Sri Lanka in a limited-over series before the first standalone season of the WBBL begins in October. 

Finally, after ringing in the New Year, the 2020 T20 World Cup will see the side try to defend their title on home soil. 

"Next year (2019/20) is probably busier than this one (2018/19) was, we're going to have to get used to it," Lanning said. 

"I think everyone has kept up well with the demands we've been put under, that's the way international cricket is going now. There is so much more cricket which is exciting and we want to be a part of it.

"Moving forward it is just about managing ourselves and working with the coaching as well to get the best out of ourselves."
