u21 Shooting Stars wrap up series

The Aussie u21s comprehensively beat the White Ferns Emerging players for the third time with a 7 wicket win and nearly 23 overs to spare.

Once again the NZ top order struggled to get runs losing 3 wickets with just 18 on the board. Apart from Anna Petersen (55) none of the rest of the top 7 hit double figures. Only double figure knocks from batters 8, 9 and 10, saw the team through to an uncompetitive 150, before they were bowled out. The wickets were shared around with Carey, Ferling, Chappell and Harris all picking up 2 wickets

The Aussie batters in contrast have all been in fine form and this time it was captain Nicole Bolton who lead from the front with a fine 68. She and Elyse Villani (38) put on 57 for the first wicket, before Villani fell. Despite the quick loss of Carey, Bolton took her team to within 6 runs of victory before she fell to a run out, but by then it was too late.

Nicole Bolton won the Player of the Match award and the Player of the Series was shared between Queensland teammates Beth Mooney (165 runs in 4 innings without being out) and Jemma Barsby (7 for 79 in 3 matches), who performed consistently throughout the series.
