Australia Women beat Pakistan Women by 37 runs in the fourth and final One-Day International in Brisbane to wrap up a 4-0 series clean sweep.

Erin Osborne produced an outstanding all-round performance, hitting 47 not out as the home side posted 220 for nine and then taking a brace of wickets as Pakistan were bowled out for 183.

Making her first appearance of the summer, Delissa Kimmince (42) gave Osborne good support and enabled Australia to post a good score despite Sana Mir taking three for 44.

Pakistan started well with Bismah Maroof making 26 and Javeria Khan 54 before Australia fought back.

Sarah Coyte ran through the tail to return three for 32 with Osborne taking two for 25.

Nicole Bolton, whose 81 not out guided Australia to victory in the third game, was named as the player of the series.

The two sides will now begin a four-match Twenty20 International series in Kerrydale, Robina, with the first game on Saturday (30th August).
