Australia Women vs Pakistan Women, 2nd T20I, Pakistan Women tour of Australia
Australia Women 100/2 (12.4 ov)
Pakistan Women 96/7 (20 ov)
Result - Australia Women won by 8 wickets
Meg Lanning's side consistently controlled the game with their bowling, Alana King (2/10) the pick of them.
After losing her partner early on, Muneeba Ali (33) displayed some quality boundaries to add to Pakistan's total, however it wasn't enough to get them back on track as wickets continued to tumble around her.
Bismah Maroof (29*) stood tall for Pakistan, but as the middle order crumbled around her it just wasn't going to make a difference.
Pakistan headed in at a very disappointing 96, after being restricted at every turn by the Aussie bowlers, it should be simple enough for their batsmen now.
The chase didn't prove a challenge for Australia, Beth Mooney started things off quickly smashing 6 Fours on her way to 46.
Meg Lanning chipped in 31 before Tahlia McGrath saw out the innings and Australia Women to an 8 wicket win.
