yesterday cricket match report: Overwhelm Australia and seal the T20I series against Pakistan

Australia’s home series dominance over Pakistan continued in the second T20I in Hobart on Thursday (26 January) as they recorded a comfortable eight-wicket win. After her 3-0 loss to Australia in the ODI series, Pakistan conceded her 2-0 impregnable in her T20I series.

Beth Mooney starred with the bat when he hit his 46 of 29 balls, including six fours and sixes, to help Australia in the 97 Chase. Mooney entered a 60-run opening stand against Meg Lanning, who came off just 8.5 overs to put Australia closer to goal.

Lanning was released 31 out of 32 and from lbw he moved to Nida Dar. Mooney then dropped to Dar Four after nearly half a century after adding 29 on Talia McGrath. McGrath and Gardner completed the proceedings as Australia went unbeaten over 100/2 in the 13th innings.

Earlier, after choosing to bat, Pakistan got off to a slow start as Muniba Ali managed several boundaries but only managed 27 on power play. Pakistan suffered another setback at the halfway point of the innings when he crawled to 46/1 and Muniba were bowled out for 33 by Grace Harris.

Australia hired up to nine bowlers and continued to pound regularly to keep Pakistan below his 100, but Bismah Maloof scored 29 but did not fall.

Brief scores: Pakistan 96/7 in 20 overs (Muneeba Ali 33, Bismah Maroof 29*; Alana King 2-10) lost to Australia 100/2 in 12.4 overs (Beth Mooney 46, Meg Lanning 31; Nida Dar 2-27) by 8 wickets.
