Australia’s 110-run triumph at Brisbane’s Allan Border Field has been their 17th consecutive triumph at the arrangement, equalling the record conduct Belinda Clark’s Australian group appreciated between December 1997 and February 1999– plus they will have a record-breaking 18th victory in their own landscapes in Wednesday’s third and last one-dayer.
Monday’s outcome also watched Meg Todays Newspaper staff take an unassailable lead from the ICC Women’s ODI Championship, a three-year, round-robin rivalry between the world’s best eight teams.
They sit on 32 points — by a potential 34 — following 17 of 21 matches.
England, sitting next on 24 points, have only three games left to play with in this variant of the Championship and may only complete on no more than 30 points.However, Australia are not likely to take legitimately ownership of this Championship plate before their final round of games, an ODI series against South Africa next March.
“I think that it’s really excellent reward for our constant performances throughout the past little bit,” Australia vice-captain Rachael Haynes said after Monday’s triumph.”There has been some excellent individual performances too inside that, but the group was playing very well and that has likely been the most gratifying thing.”
Their dominance of the variant was something else .
By 17 Championship one-dayers played as the onset of this 2017 Ashes, Australia have dropped only 1 game — the next match of the multi-format series against England at Coffs Harbour.Since, they have listed string sweeps against India, Pakistan, New Zealand and West Indies, and now hold a 2-0 lead to the continuing competition against Sri Lanka.
