Australia Women 149-5 (Kimmince 43) beat
Pakistan Women 86-8 by 63 runs
Second Twenty20 International, Robina

Australia Women moved into a 2-0 series lead over Pakistan Women courtesy of a handsome 63-run win in the seccond Twenty20 International in Robina.

Openers Elyse Villani (31) and Delissa Kimmince (43) helped set up Australia's score of 149 for five before Pakistan were restricted to just 86 for eight in reply.

Sarah Coyte and Rene Farrell took matching figures of two for 14 as only two Pakistanis - Nain Abidi (21) and Sana Mir (16) reached double figures.

Villani's run came from just 24 balls an Kimmince made 43 in 48, the pair putting on 52 for the first wicket.

Further runs from Meg Lanning (22), Ellyse Perry (16) and Alyssa Healy (26) handed Australia a competitive score.

Asmavia Iqbal and Sania Khan took two wickets apiece with Sadia Yousuf taking one.

Kimmince then struck early to remove Marina Iqbal for five and wickets continued to tumble with Aliya Riaz (7), Bismah Maroof (0) and Nida Dar (7) all falling cheaply as well as Abidi to leave Pakistan reeling at 53 for five.

Mir, along with Qanita Jalil (7), ensured they would bat out 20 overs but they never threatened the total as Erin Osborne, Julie Hunter and Megan Schutt all took a wicket apiece.

The third game in the four-match series is on Wednesday (3rd September).
