Aus­tralia and In­dia per­fect

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

CHAM­PI­ONS Aus­tralia, along with In­dia, made it three wins from three as they closed on semi- fi­nal places at the Women’s World Cup on Sun­day, while the West Indies were bowled out for just 48.

Aus­tralia made New Zealand pay for a be­low- par to­tal by reach­ing a tar­get of 220 for the loss of five wick­ets with eight balls to spare at Bris­tol.

All- rounder Ell­yse Perry scored 71 as she reached the mile­stone of 2000 one- day in­ter­na­tional runs.

“To­day has been our big­gest test against a fan­tas­tic team in New Zealand, they al­ways give us a tough game,” said Perry.

In­dia were held to 169 for nine by Pak­istan at Derby only to bowl out their archri­vals for just 74, with left- arm spin­ner Ekta Bisht tak­ing five for 18.

“She’s de­liv­ered time and again for In­dia,” In­dia cap­tain Mithali Raj said of Bisht.
