Batting first, Australia Women posted a formidable total of 277 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in their allotted 50 overs. Opener Alyssa Healy set the tone with a solid 60 runs, supported by valuable contributions from Beth Mooney (82) and McGrath (44). Despite a few setbacks in the middle order, Australia managed to reach a competitive total, thanks to some late-order fireworks.

In response, South Africa Women faced a daunting target of 238 runs in a reduced innings of 31 overs due to rain interruptions, as per the DLS method. However, the South African batting lineup struggled to cope with the pressure imposed by the Australian bowlers. Tazmin Brits (31) and Sune Luus (34) showed some resistance, but regular wickets fell at crucial intervals, leading to a dismal total of 127 runs all out.

Australia’s bowling unit delivered a disciplined performance, with Alana King (4 wickets) and Kim Garth (3 wickets) making significant breakthroughs to dismantle the South African batting order.
