Australia batted first and once again got off to a fantastic start.

Despite giving up two early chances, Bolton played another brilliant innings and scored 84 off 88 including twelve boundaries.

Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning both played solid supporting roles to put Australia in a fantastic position at 2-130.

Ellyse Perry and Beth Mooney then put on 96 runs for the fifth wicket, with Mooney playing a dazzling inning of 56 off just 40 deliveries.

Mooney fell but Perry remained, and she made a run-a-ball 70 batting with the tail, which put Australia in a solid position going into the innings break.

Australia’s bowlers didn’t give much away early, with Megan Schutt conceding just two runs off her first four overs.

Despite this, India built a fantastic foundation thanks to Smriti Mandhana blasting 67 off 53.

With India at 2-122 after 24 overs, the match was firmly in the balance before Perry dismissed the dangerous Mithali Raj.

From there Australia’s spinners took over, with Amanda-Jade Wellington and Jess Jonassen combining for the next four wickets.

India was finally bowled out for 227, which gave Australia the series victory.

Australia still has one ODI and five T20s to go and will be looking to improve their fielding after a couple of catches went down in this match.
