Brief Scores: Australia Women: 338-7 (50 overs) [Phoebe Litchfield: 119 (125), Alyssa Healy: 82 (85); Shreyanka Patil 3/57 (10), Amanjot Kaur 2/70 (10)] defeated India Women: 148 all out (32.4 overs) [Smriti Mandhana: 29 (29), Deepti Sharma: 25* (39); Georgia Wareham 3/21 (6.4), Annabel Sutherland 2/9 (3)] by 190 runs.

Australia Women annihilated their Indian counterparts at the Wankhede Stadium in the third ODI to complete a 3-0 sweep in their three-match series.

Phoebe Litchfield, Healy share record stand

Australian captain Alyssa Healy shared a 189-run opening partnership with junior teammate Phoebe Litchfield after she won the toss and opted to bat first. While Healy blasted a near run-a-ball 82 until she was cleaned up by Pooja Vastrakar, Litchfield tonked only her second ODI century by top-scoring in the innings with 119 from 125 balls.

Young spinner Shreyanka Patil signalled India’s brief fightback during the middle overs by trapping Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath in quick succession.

The 21-year-old all-rounder also accounted for well-set Ashleigh Gardner during the death overs, before handy contributions from Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Wareham and Alana King stretched the Australian total to a colossal 338-7.

Apart from Shreyanka, Amanjot Kaur also struck twice in her 10-over spell by dismissing Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland.

Schutt, Wareham wreck Indian top-order

India’s 339-run pursuit never got going as they lost both openers, Yastika Bhatia and seasoned campaigner Smriti Mandhana at the hands of Australia’s new-ball pacer Megan Schutt within the first 10 overs of the innings.

Emboldened by Schutt’s new-ball blitz, leg-spinner Georgia Wareham trapped hosts captain Harmanpreet Kaur and in-form Richa Ghosh in quick succession to extinguish all Indian hopes at 72-4. Jemimah Rodrigues also failed to pile on her confident start as she was trapped by Ashleigh Gardner, before Alana King’s twin burst further worsened India’s troubles at 128-7.

Annabel Sutherland removed Shreyanka Patil and Renuka Singh in a space of two deliveries as Australian bowlers collectively dusted out the Indians for just 148 to register a 190-run win for themselves.

The two sides will now travel to Navi Mumbai for the impending three-match T20I series.
