Womens Ashes: Australia win second ODI to make it 1-1

July 24, 2015

As predicted by Isa Guha on Sportsister, this women’s Ashes is looking set to be a closely matched battle. After England took the first ODI (One Day International match) in Taunton on Tuesday, Australia evened things up by winning the second in Bristol on thursday. The final ODI is in Worcester on Sunday before the teams prepare for the test match in a couple of weeks.

Australia win second ODI: Meg Lanning hit a stunning century as Australia beat England to level the Women’s Ashes series at Bristol. Lanning’s 104 came in 98 balls and included 13 fours as she laid the platform for Australia’s 259-6. England’s openers put on 92, but once Heather Knight (38) and Charlotte Edwards (58) were parted the hosts collapsed. They lost their last seven wickets for 40 runs, being bowled out for 196 – Megan Schutt taking 4-47. Full story via the BBC
