Fourth Twenty20 International, Robina

Australia Women completed a 4-0 clean sweep over Pakistan Women by winning the fourth and final Twenty20 International by 20 runs in Robina.

That followed on from a 4-0 sweep of the One-Day International series which puts them on top of the early ICC Women's Championship standings.

Australia were pushed harder in this game than in the earlier matches, posting 139 for three before Pakistan closed on 119 for six.

Meg Lanning hit an unbeaten 46, Elyse Villani 42 and Delissa Kimmince 28 to set up Australia's score, with Lanning facing just 28 balls after Villani and Kimmince put on 64 for the first wicket.

Bismah Maroof then made 39 and Marina Iqbal 38 as Pakistan made a good start to their run chase before falling away.

Two wickets apiece for Rene Farrell and Kimmince and one for Erin Osborne ensured Australia sealed the match.
