Aussies Established an Early Dominance
Australia recently defeated the West Indies by seven wickets in Wellington to preserve their impressive record at the Women’s Cricket World Cup. As specified by an unbeaten 83 from Rachael Haynes, the tournament’s red-hot top choices created another ruthless show to race to a 4-0 winning record at the one-day grandstand. The victory puts the six-time champions at the peak of the standings with a solid run rate, essentially ensuring a semi-final spot. Within the round-robin standings, the West Indies have won two of their four matches and stay within a chance of making the best four.
Ellyse Perry took two wickets in progressive balls to leave the West Indies at 4-2, staggering them right after the later had won the toss and elected to bat. Australian Captain Meg Lanning commented that early wickets up front had established their dominance within the game. This immediately put the West Indies under pressure. Perry coaxed an edge off the primary ball confronted by Kycia Knight minutes after clean bowling Hayley Matthews for duck.
