The Australian Women's Cricket Team has sealed the series against Indian Women's Team as their openers Meg Lanning and Nicole Bolton scored fifties to have a century opening partnership to chase the 253 runs target as Smitri Mandhana's century went in vain.
Australia had won the first game and led the three match series 1-0 but luck was on India's side today as they won the toss and elected to bat first. They lost their first wicket very early as opening batter Thirush Kamini got out without scoring any runs.
For the second wicket their captain Mithali Raj and Smitri Mandhana had a partnership of 150 runs to make their team's position strong. Raj got out but Mandhana kept going and scored 102 runs. Shikha Pandey scored 33 runs off 30 balls as she helped India go above 250.
Ellyse Perry got three wickets for Australia as India finished the innings on 252/8 in 50 overs. The Australian openers are also in good form as Meg Lanning and Nicole Bolton had 138 runs partnership. Shikha Pandey got rid of both batters by dismissing them in back to back overs.
But after them Ellyse Perry and Alex Blackwell took their side close by having a partnership of 44 runs. They were also sent back off consecutive deliveries but even that was not a problem, as Alyssa Healy and Jess Jonassen scored 29 each to take their side over the line with 22 balls to spare.
