Australia women seal series win against Pakistan women

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars have made light work of Pakistan, with Meg Lanning and Nicole Bolton leading the way for the world champions. Captain Meg Lanning and opener Nicole Bolton have led the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars to a comfortable win in the third one-day international against Pakistan, sealing a three-nil series victory for the home side.

The pair put on 135 for the second wicket after the Australian bowlers restricted Pakistan to 1-189 off their 50 overs. Spin-bowling allrounder Jess Jonassen again stole the show with the ball, grabbing three wickets as the hosts kept Pakistan to 8-189 from their 50 overs – a target the Southern Stars would have considered well and truly manageable after chasing down 122 inside 25 overs in Sunday’s rain-affected encounter.

The Australian bowlers were forced to work hard in the early going, as openers Rene Farrell and Julie Hunter were economical without snaring that crucial first-up wicket. Marina Iqbal and Javeria Khan put on 41 at the top of the order before Sarah Coyte got the breakthrough, a bottom edge from a slog sweep held expertly by Alyssa Healy behind the stumps.

Iqbal was then joined in the middle by Pakistan’s leading run-scorer Bismah Maroof and the two went about lifting the scoring rate. But just as she did in the second ODI, Jonassen entered the attack and had an immediate effect. After a strong lbw appeal was turned down in her first over, Jonassen took matters into her own hands, a flighted delivery crashing into the stumps of the charging Iqbal (38).
