Aussies hope to beat Indian eves in ODI series

Bolton's fourth ODI hundred ensured Australia reached a modest 201-run target in just 32.1 overs.

Indian pacer Shikha Pandey claimed a wicket while Australian spinner finished with a four-wicket haul.

Left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen (4/30) led a stellar show from the Australian spinners alongside leggie Amanda-Jade Wellington (3/24).

The second match is set to take place on March 15 at the same venue. "All the batters in our team are capable of scoring 100+ and everyone's wicket is important and if we continue to throw away wickets like this, it will become very hard". "I think to put on a dominant display like that is really pleasing and that's how we sort of want to go about our batting with really good intent".

With the top order failing, the lower order stood up. We didn't have enough on the board and then we didn't bowl according to the field.

Kaur herself was confident that she would come good in the remaining two games, having managed only 9 before being dismissed by Megan Schutt, stating that her attitude of "never giving up" would help her to overcome the mistakes she made in the first match.

Bolton said she enjoyed batting on a pitch, which assisted the bowlers too. During her tremendous innings, she produced 12 boundaries which anchored team's position in the early stage of the game.

Electing to bat after winning the toss, India lost wickets at regular intervals before Vastrakar and Verma steadied the ship with sensible batting. This was the 18-year-old Vastrakar's maiden half century, and she laced her crucial knock with seven boundaries and a six, while Verma found the fence three times during her 71-ball innings. The total looked a far cry when Shikha Pandey was dismissed in the 32nd over with the score reading 113 for seven. Bowling allrounder Vastrakar partnered No. 7 wicketkeeper-batsman Sushma Verma to breathe animation into an tail that has time and again failed to wag under pressure.

The hosts were off to a steady start with openers, Punam Raut (37) and Smriti Mandhana (12), putting on 38 runs in nine overs. Australia women's beat India women's by 8 wickets in the first ODI.

Batting only for the third time in global cricket, Vastrakar's 51-ball 50 featured seven fours and a six that lent credence to her established pinch-hitting prowess in the domestic circuit.
