The Australians suffered a disappointing 8-1 loss to Japan in the opening match but only had to wait a day to book their first win on Thursday.

But it was a tense affair, with Australia coach Laing Harrow bringing in Ellen Roberts to replace Kaia Parnaby in the seventh and final innings.

The Italians had two runners on base and two outs, with Roberts able to secure a crucial strikeout with Italy losing Marta Gasparotto.
