Australia Women 178-5 (Cameron 90no) beat
India Women 175-9 (Kaur 63) by 5 wickets
Third One-Day International, Nagpur

Jess Cameron scored an unbeaten 90 to guide Australia Women to a comprehensive five-wicket win over India Women in the third and final One-Day International in Nagpur.

Australia chased down a target of 176 to win in 35.4 overs in convincing fashion to seal a 3-0 series clean sweep.

Batting first, India scored 175 for nine with Harmanpreet Kaur top scoring with 63 but Australia kept things tight in the field.

Julie Hunter, Ellyse Perry and Jessica Jonassen all took two wickets before Australia's batting gave India no opportunity to get back into the game.

Rachael Haynes led from the top with 42, adding 67 with Cameron for the third wicket after Alyssa Healy (6) and Meg lanning (11) had fallen cheaply.

And although India rallied to remove Haynes, Alex Blackwell (1) and Lisa Sthalekar (11), there was no stopping Cameron, whose 90 came from 87 balls.

Jodie Fields was unbeaten on 11 alongside her when the win was sealed.
