Satterthwaite slams third hundred as New Zealand Women complete 5-0 series whitewash
New Zealand Women 223-5 (Satterthwaite 123) beat
Pakistan Women 220 (Javeria 50) by five wickets
Fifth One-Day International in Nelson
Amy Satterthwaite continued her good form and notched her third consecutive century as New Zealand Women chased down 221 against Pakistan Women in 38.3 overs with five wickets in hand in the fifth One-Day International in Nelson to complete a 5-0 series whitewash.
Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first. Ayesha Zafar (50) and Nahida Khan (31) justified the decision and provided a solid opening stand of 84 runs in 19.5 overs.
They reached their fifty-run stand in just 60 deliveries and slowed down a bit following the milestone. Meanwhile, Zafar reached her half-century in 66 deliveries.
The partnership was eventually broken by none other than Satterthwaite (1-31) when she had Nahida caught.
But, Pakistan carried on with Javeria Khan (50) joining Zafar and brought the 100-run mark. Zafar was trapped LBW by Amelia Kerr (4-42) while Khan completed a 67-ball fifty.
Kerr and Thamsyn Newton (5-31) brought New Zealand back into the game with their nine wickets combined as Pakistan were bowled out for 220 in their innings.
Satterthwaite (123), decided to open the batting for New Zealand in the absence of Suzie Bates. The innings completely revolved around her and she reached her fifty off 37 deliveries and needed just 47 more balls to complete her century.
The second highest score in the innings was Katie Perkins (23) which speaks monumental about the effort of Satterthwaite.
They eventually completed the chase in just 38.3 overs with five wickets in hand to complete the series with a 5-0 victory.
