Scorecard
Australia dominated the proceedings right from the start. Rachael Haynes played a good knock of 87 from 105 balls at the top of the order. She was well supported by Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning who made 44 and 49 respectively. And there were useful contributions from all the batters right down the order. As a result,7 from 50 overs.  Australia had a commanding total of 271 for 7 from 50 overs. Leigh Kasperek bowled a stunning spell of 6/46, the best bowling effort for a New Zealand bowler against Australia. 


Unfortunately, the White Ferns batters could not back Kasperek as they wilted against some decent and accurate bowling by the Australian bowlers. Amelia Kerr was the top scorer for the White Ferns as she made fighting 47 from 70 balls. There was hardly any other contribution of significance with the bat as New Zealand were bowled out on just 200. Jess Jonassen picked three wickets. Georgia Wareham was good enough as he returned with the figures of 2/39 from her 10 overs. 
Amy Satterthwaite, New Zealand skipper: I liked the way Kasperek bowled. We were happy with that. It was the best bowling effort for a New Zealand bowler against Australia. There were few positives. Kerr batted well. We had few chances. We created opportunities and half-chances but we could not convert them. We have to keep building up and we have to know that we are playing against a quality Australian side. It is tough to be by the sidelines. Kasperek was good at coming back in the side.

Meg Lanning, Australian skipper: We enjoyed being aggressive. It was a good batting wicket. It was nice to see Rach bat. But we lost a few wickets towards the end. We thought it was a good score but not a match-winning score. We discussed at half-time that we have to get in there and restrict there. It was great to stop them to just 200. 
Rachel Haynes, The Player of the Match: I gave myself time early. I learned from the first game. It was nice to bat on but a bit disappointed to not bat deeper. It was tough. There are tough periods. It was nice that we had wickets in hand. There were good back-to-back partnerships in the end. We had clear plans. We bounced ideas from one another. 
An unusual way to end the proceedings! But it is yet another win for Australia. They beat New Zealand by 71 runs to stretch their winning world record winning streak to 23 wins in a row. 
Over: 45 | Summary: 1 1 1 1 0 W Bowler: Megan Schutt Score: 200/10
44.6 Jess Jonassen to Leigh Kasparek, RUN OUT! DROPPED! WHAT AN END! Too full on off, Kasparek steps out and chips a low one back to the bowler who puts it down; she is very aware of Mair backing up too far though and she fires down the stumps off an underarm throw to catch Mair well short of her ground! All over at the Bay Oval! The winning streak continues for Australia - they win by a mammoth 71 runs and seal the series 2-0 with a game to spare!

Jonassen to bowl. 
Six runs from the over. Kasparek being cheeky and attempting a lap shot. She missed hitting the ball and Healey failed to stop the ball as the ball ran down to fine-leg for FOUR BYES. This last wicket partnership is now annoying the Australian bowlers.
