Australia's Beth Mooney showed her batting prowess and slammed her career best score in ODIs - 133 from 105 as the Meg Lanning side posted a mammoth 336 against Pakistan women in the third and the final ODI on Saturday.

Mooney has been sensational form as of late and she displayed her array of strokes to take Pakistan women out of the game in the first innings itself. 

Apart from Mooney, skipper Meg Lanning also scored a quick-fire 72 off 70 as Pakistan never had the momentum on their side.

Mooney looked scratchy at the start, but once she settled in, there was no looking back. She took a special liking towards Tuba Hassan, smashing her for three successive sixes, out of which one landed on the roof-top.

The Queenslander's template was questionnable at the start, as she just managed 16 from her first 37 deliveries. But she switched gears and racked up 117 from her next 6 8 deliveries.

Lanning gave her ample support as the duo went berskerk and used the conditions to their advantage. Mooney notched up her third century in ODIs, and helped her side post a giant total in front of the visitors.

At the time of writing, Pakistan women are 106-2, in 23.3 overs. Skipper Bismah Maroof is batting on 21, and Nida Dar has just joined her at the crease.
