Aus u21s crush NZE

The Australian u21s cruised to a 184 run victory over their New Zealand counterparts and wrapped up a series win in the third ODI of the 4 game series.

Having won the toss the Aussies set the White Ferns a daunting target scoring 279 for 7 in their 50 overs based around 2 substantial partnerships between Elyse Villani (67) and Beth Mooney (107*) and then Mooney and Sarah Coyte (56). Opening bowlers Lea Tahuhu and Morna Nielsen both picked up a couple of wickets.

In reply the White Ferns never really got going, losing early wickets to openers Megan Schutt (3-38) and Holly Ferling (2-23), and then crumbling to the left arm fast medium pace of Western Australia's Gemma Triscari to be all out for just 95.

New Zealand have one last chance to salvage something from this series on Wednesday 21st November when they play the final game in the series.
