Aussies off to a flier

Cuttack, Feb 1, 2013, PTI:

Title contenders Australia started their ICC Women’s World Cup campaign in a confident manner whipping minnows Pakistan by 91 runs in their group B league opener, here on Friday.

Opting to bat first, Australian women could manage only 175 in 46.1 overs on a slow Barabati Stadium track but then bowled with a lot of purpose to skittle Pakistan out for a paltry 84 in 33.2 overs. Veteran all-rounder Lisa Sthalekar contributed an useful 32 and then bowled nine overs of controlled off-breaks to grab two for 19. Another notable performer was Sarah Coyte who took three wickets and scored 35 runs.

Australian batswomen didn’t have a good day as only opener Rachel Haynes (39) and Sarah Coyte (35) were the only other two, who crossed the 30-run mark barring Sthalekar. The Australian total was propped up by the 17 wides bowled by Pakistani women. Left-arm spinner Sadia Yousuf was the pick of the bowlers grabbing three for 30.
