Jess Kerr down the order did provide some late flourish along with Lea Tahuhu providing some promising signs for the White Ferns in the future. The boundaries scored by them came a bit too late and not were nt enough to get them across the line.
The Australians continued to rip through the overs as they were looking to make this match a valid one. The reason being there was a slight drizzle in the middle overs which fortunately did not last long and interrupt the game. They were successful in doing so as they never allowed the White Ferns to settle in.
And just after that, Amy was sent packing as well, she was unable to read the spin and did not have her feet moving at all. After that, the brakes were just put on the White Ferns as they were unable to find the boundaries at all.
The wickets just started to tumble after that over as Australian bowlers started to strangle the White Ferns. In the following over after Hayley's loss, a bit of hesitation and miscommunication causes them another wicket in the form of Amelia.
Amy and Hayley did build a partnership between themselves in, the scoring rate did not rise for the White Ferns as Australian bowlers continued to press on and kept things tight. Just past the 10 over mark, Hayley looking to shift gears loses her wickets.
Katey trying to slog a full toss by Megan hit is straight to the sweeper at long-on. Australia were making bowling changes as well as bowling out the overs thick and fast to create pressure on the White Ferns. Amy Satterthwaite the White Ferns skipper then came out to the middle.
Coming to chase the target of 150 runs, had a decent start as Katey Martin and Hayley Jensen came out to open the batting for White Ferns. Initially, they found a lucky boundary but later but as the over and as it looked like the duo was set they lost a wicket.
The rain shortened the play today at Bay Oval as the match was reduced to 25 overs per side. The White Ferns bowled well through the first innings and restricted the strong Australian batting unit to under 150 runs. Leigh once again was the pick of the bowlers as she got 3 wickets.
A comprehensive victory for Australia as they continue to prove their dominance in this game. Australia ripped through their overs quickly and did not allow the White Ferns batters to settle in. Australia extends their winning streak to 24 matches with this one.
