Women World T20: Aus thrashes Pak by 52 runs

Batting first after winning the toss in the second match, Australia raced away to a strong start, with the first-wicket duo of Healy and Mooney adding 72 off 7.6 overs. Healy was on her way to a brisk fifty when she became Aliya Riaz’s first victim of the day, departing for a 29-ball 48.

Meg Lanning and Mooney kept the scoreboard ticking, but neither batter could go on to make it a big one, as they fell in their 40s. Yet, the 165/5 was a strong total.

With youngster Umaima Sohail playing a fearless game, Pakistan looked like they might make a fight of it, but her run-out for 20 off 11 balls opened the floodgates. Spinners Georgia Wareham and Ash Gardner got some significant turn and wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy was in the thick of things, playing a part in four dismissals as Pakistan collapsed from 64/3 to 78/7, before finishing on 113/8.

Pakistan’s next match is scheduled for Sunday against their arch-rivals India, while Australia face Ireland in the second match on the same day.
