Australia beat West Indies by eight wickets

SOLID IN OPENER’S POSITION Hayley Matthews

Australia Women complete a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over West Indies women at Taunton.

But their final six wickets fell for a combined 23 runs, as they finished on 204 all out from 47.5 overs. Megan Schutt took a wicket as well.

"It was a pretty special feeling, the result is exactly how we want to play as a team and the bowlers played a massive part in that". Find us on Facebook too!

Chedean Nation and Deandra Dottin made 39 and 29 runs respectively for West Indies.

Perry, who had earlier uprooted Dottin, then repeated the trick to Afy Fletcher late on as the ICC Women's World Twenty20 India 2016 victor was bowled out for 204.

Lanning, who is the world's No.1-rated batter, returned to form against Pakistan, scoring an unbeaten 40 in last Thursday's final hit-out having been dismissed for a duck against South Africa last week. Reaching their milestones allowed the two to open up, orchestrating some wonderful shots down the pitch as Bolton in particular freed her arms for some glorious stroke-making.

The only hint Lanning gave about the make-up of Australia's XI was that selectors had "14 players fit and ready" - suggesting leg-spinner Amanda-Jade Wellington who missed both warm-up matches due to an injury to her right forefinger - will not be available for the match.

Winning the toss and choosing to bat first, West Indies had a very slow start that never showed signs of picking up during their 48-over stint. "The ground looks like it runs pretty quick and obviously with the square all the way across as well it picks up a bit of pace off there, so we'll just have to assess the conditions to start off with and make sure we get a good base with the bat and then launch towards the end".
