First ODI: Australian Women team beat Sri Lanka by 157 runs”

Australia Women vs Sri Lanka Women.

Australia Women thrashed Sri Lanka by 157 runs in the first ODI of the three-match series here on Saturday.

Captain Meg Lanning won the toss and elected to bat first on a lovely day for cricket in Brisbane.

Australia won the toss and elected to bat, the hosts posting 8-281 with captain Meg Lanning top-scoring with 73 from 66 balls. Firstly Lanning fell, and then Haynes for 56 following a 126-run second-wicket stand. Rachael Haynes alongside Meg Lanning stitched together a partnership of 124 runs for the second wicket. The highest scorer was captain Shashikala Siriwardene who managed 30, while the next best score was only 22. Beth Mooney who came in at the dismissal of Rachael Haynes also scored 66 runs at nearly run a ball making sure Australia ended with an above-par total.

"No doubt we are the world number one side but again I say that in T20 cricket no team is weaker or considered under strength and after our defeat in the opening match we have looked into our weaker areas to get ready for making a come back in the next game", he said here on Sunday ahead of Monday's match at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Australia's spinners were allowed to bowl with very little pressure on them.

Sri Lanka kept losing wickets at regular intervals and was soon found reeling at 117 runs for the loss of seven wickets with 165 runs still required in 14 overs.

Sri Lanka women's team would love to improve their batting performances, their experienced campaigners would have to spend a lot of time in the middle to make sure that the Sri Lankan team end up getting a par total.

Pakistan Cricket Captain, Sarfraz Ahmad gave credit to Sri Lankan bowlers for striking victory against the world number one in the first T20 global of three match series here on Saturday night at Gadaffi stadium.
