Aussie women win cricket series vs India

Aussie women win cricket series vs India”

Vadodara: The Southern Stars from Australia reasserted their supremacy with a comprehensive 60-run victory against Indian women as they sealed the three-match series by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead on Thursday.

While Australia will look to seal the series, India women will look to bounce back and it is the last chance to save the series.

Indian team never appeared to be competitive with batters letting the team down in both games. Mandhana fell for 67 in 53 balls, with 12 fours and a six.

For Australia, Jess Jonassen was the top bowler with three wickets.

Skipper Mithali Raj (15) hit three boundaries but a mis-timed pull-shot off Ellyse Perry (2/41) landed in Alyssa Healy's gloves. Left-hander Deepti, like opener Punam, doesn't have the power to hit big shots like a Harmanpreet Kaur or a Veda Krishnamurthy. From 123/2 in the 25th over, India slipped to 170/7 by the end of the 36th, as Wellington (2/20) and Jonassen ran riot, leaving the tail-enders with a lot to do.

Driven to 287/9 on the backs of half-centuries to Nicole Bolton (88), Ellyse Perry (70*) and Beth Mooney (56), the Southern Stars chipped away to derail a chase that at one stage saw India comfortably placed at 88 without loss in the 18th over before the innings gave way to 227 in 49.2 overs at Reliance Stadium.

Pooja Vastrakar (30, 33 balls) used the long handle to good effect as India managed to cross the 200-run mark.

Australian Opener Nicole Bolton provided a solid start to the team as she single-handedly scored 84 runs to win Player of The Match.

While Perry hit six fours and two sixes, Mooney had nine boundaries to her credit. But even Lanning was not able to add much to the Aussie scoreboard as the captain gifted her wicket to Shikha Pandey for 24 runs, and soon Nicole Bolton and Rachael Haynes followed. India have a big task at hand as the visitors lead the three-match ODI series 1-0 after winning the first game on Monday easily.

India got off to a strong start and were 0-88 in the 18th over before left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen removed the risky Smriti Mandhana who'd rocketed to 67 off just 40 balls.
