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.
