Australia eyeing par score

As for the match, AUS-W won the toss and elected to bat first. The openers Phoebe Litchfield and Alyssa Healy gave the Aussies a neat start.

Buoyed by the match-winning partnership in the 1st ODI, Litchfield and Elyse Perry again started to put runs on the board. The two were playing risk-free cricket and were taking the side to a comfortable position. However, Deepti Sharma got the breakthrough in the 24th over. She dismissed Perry at 50. New batter, Beth Mooney, could not hold for long and could only contribute 10 on the board. Well set Litchfield also perished soon after. She got out after a gritty knock of 63. According to the latest update, Australia are 200/6 after 43 overs.
