Sophie Molineiux Speaks After Australia Beat Pakistan
Australia has continued its winning ways in Kuala Lumpur today, beating Pakistan by 64 runs in the first Twenty20 International at Kinrara Oval.
Batting first, Australia posted an imposing 3-195, with opener Alyssa Healy (59) and Ashleigh Gardner (63*) continuing their strong form from the 50-over matches.
Australia then made a strong start with the ball after spinner Sophie Molineux (4-16) claimed a wicket in the first over.
A 55-run partnership between Nahida Khan and Omaima Sohail got Pakistan back on track, but a steady flow of wickets made the going tough.
Molineux reaped the rewards of some tight bowling to finish with four wickets, while speedster Megan Schutt (1-14) was also impressive.
