It’s always tough to beat Australia Women in their own backyard. In the 1st ODI where the game was reduced to 40 overs, they chased 160 runs with 67 balls to spare to go 1-0 up in the series. Phoebe Litchfield who replaced injured Alyssa Healy scored an unbeaten 78* runs in her first ODI innings. Meg Lanning who returned to International cricket after taking a personal break added a well-made 67 runs. Initially Darcie Brown and Jess Jonassen picked up 2 wickets apiece to restrict the visitors to 160 runs on the board. Considering their rich vein of form in the white ball they are the sheer favorites to win the series with a game left.
Pakistan Women did well to get to the 160 run-mark in the 1st ODI after being reduced to 3 for 38. Nida Dar took the responsibility and scored valiant 59 runs and Bismah Maroof was the other batter who showed more temperament, scoring 28 runs. It was too easy for Southern Stars batters as their bowlers weren’t up to the task while defending the marginal score. They completely rely on Nida Dar which is not a great sign. It’s a do-or-die game for them in order to stay alive in the series.
