Australia Women Thrash Sri Lanka in First ODI to Take Series Lead

Pakistan cricket team captain, Sarfraz Ahmad, on Sunday promised a determined comeback of his team in the second T20 global against Sri Lanka after his team's dismal show in the opener.

Half centuries to Rachael Haynes, Meg Lanning and Ash Gardner lifted Australia to a challenging 8-281 in the opening one-day worldwide of their three-match series against Sri Lanka at Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

Captain Meg Lanning won the toss and elected to bat first on a attractive day for cricket in Brisbane.

Australia lost opener Alyssa Healy for just 8 but Haynes and Lanning added 126 for the second wicket. The hosts continued to score runs despite losing their wickets. Beth Mooney who came in at the dismissal of Rachael Haynes also scored 66 runs at nearly run a ball making sure Australia ended with an above-par total.

RaceBets, Betfair and Coral all cut Harrington's charge to 14-1 from 25-1 for next year's 1,000 Guineas. Just stamina gave out with her over that trip in the intensity and pace of the race.

Australia won the opening game of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka by a resounding 157 runs on Saturday in Brisbane.

The women's teams across the world have been making some noise in the past couple of years by setting some huge records in the game and very unexpectedly giving the game a new spin and a new charm which is quite lacking in the male counterpart of the game despite of being a huge cash raking system in the machine. Keeping all the Sri Lankan batting issues aside, the Australian bowlers are to be appreciated for their efforts.

In the previous 5 encounters, Australia women's team has beaten Sri Lanka women's team in all the games.

Siriwardene, who took over the captaincy from Chamari Atapattu for the ODIs, was the most economical of the bowlers with 1 for 44 from her ten overs.
