Women’s WT20: NZ beat Aus by 6 wkts

New Zealand continued their unbeaten run at the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 cricket tournament by coasting to a convincing six-wicket win over Australia to register their third consecutive win in Group A, on Monday.

Electing to bat after winning the toss, Australia Women could only muster 103 for eight, a paltry target which New Zealand Women overwhelmed with ease in 16.2 overs for the loss of just four wickets.

Australia Women witnessed a horrendous start to their innings as Kiwi off-spinner Leigh Kasperek ran through the top-order to reduce their opponents to 4 for 4 in 4 overs. Kasperek’s impressive figures of 4-0-13-3 includes two wickets in consecutive balls of the second over.

Leg-break bowler Erin Bermingham (2/23) also chipped in two wickets for New Zealand Women.
