AUS vs SL : Rachael Haynes Gets Maiden Ton as Hosts Bag 2-0 Lead


Australia 282/8 in 50 overs (Rachael Haynes 118; Achini Kulasuriya 3-50) beat Sri Lanka 172/9 in 50 overs (Harshitha Madavi 39; Jess Jonassen 4-31) by 110 runs

Rachael Haynes struck her maiden ODI century - in her 56th game - as Australia Women bagged a 2-0 lead over Sri Lanka in Brisbane with a 110-run victory. The hosts also picked up their 16th win in the ICC Women's Championship - in 17 games - to consolidate their position at the top of the table. Haynes struck 118 as Australia posted 282 for 8 after opting to bat.

In the chase, Anushka Sanjeewani and Harshitha Madavi did well to recover from the early loss of Chamari Athapaththu with a 70-run stand. However, their slow progress backfired as the asking rate kept climbing up to put the middle order under pressure. As expected, the middle order crumbled and the target slipped out of reach.
