Australia’s ladies set another world record for back to back one-day worldwide triumphs with a six-wicket prevail upon New Zealand.
Their 22nd progressive triumph beat the record for the longest series of wins held by Ricky Ponting’s Australia men’s group since 2003.
New Zealand were all out for 212 with seven balls left in their 50 overs.
Ellyse Perry and Ashleigh Gardner both hit half-hundreds of years to manage Australia home with just about 12 overs to save.
Gardner completed the match with a six that took her to an unbeaten 53 off 41 balls.
It likewise took Australia to 215-4, the new world record – and sent them 1-0 up in the three-match arrangement.
Perry’s unbeaten 56 off 79 balls was her 28th ODI 50 years.
Prior, Alyssa Healy’s 65 had given Australia a stage to expand on and from that point they traveled to triumph.
That was after their bowling assault had restricted New Zealand to 212 having won the throw and put the White Ferns in to bat. Megan Schutt asserted 4 for 32 of every nine overs while Nicola Carey took three wickets for 34 runs.
Hayley Jensen was bowled by Schutt for a duck in the second finished and keeping in mind that individual opener Lauren Down arrived at 90 preceding falling – putting on a 90-run organization for the third wicket with Amelia Kerr – New Zealand’s score never looked enough to extend Australia.
