Australia defeat Sri Lanka in first women’s ODI

Sri Lanka

Captain Meg Lanning won the toss and elected to bat first on a handsome day for cricket in Brisbane. Healthy contributions from Rachel Haynes (56) and Beth Mooney (66) gave Australia a solid total of 8/281.

Australia lost opener Alyssa Healy for just 8 but Haynes and Lanning added 126 for the second wicket. "It's part of the game, we haven't spoken a lot about it, we've spoken about what we can control and making sure we stay in our crease until the ball's let go". From there on, it was just one-way traffic as wickets kept tumbling. Sri Lankan innings never got going losing wickets at the regular intervals the first setback being losing their first wicket in the first over itself.

Australian spinners Ashleigh Gardner, Georgia Wareham and Jess Jonassen picked two wickets apiece to prevent the visitors from settling on a warm, gusty day in Brisbane. Australia has been dominating and look set to do so in the coming games as well.

Sri Lanka outclass Pakistan by 35 runs to claim T20 series

Australia had swept Sri Lanka in the three T20Is prior to the ODI. After that, the hosts have taken a lead by 1-0 in the 50-over format as well and still two games remaining under the hands of Sri Lanka and now the captain of Islanders has come down with a warning that they will do whatever it takes to win upcoming encounters against the hosts. Portraits of both Sri Lankan and Pakistani players have been displayed on the roads leading towards the stadium.
