Australia secured a convincing eight-wicket victory over West Indies in the first One Day International (ODI) at Allan Border Field. The West Indies struggled with the bat, posting a modest total of 83 runs. Kim Garth and Megan Schutt led a formidable Australian bowling attack, reducing West Indies to 14 for 3 after ten overs. Despite brief resistance from Stafanie Taylor and Shemaine Campbelle, the team failed to establish a substantial partnership. Aaliyah Alleyne’s spirited innings, marked by five boundaries, was a notable highlight. In response, Australia chased down the target comfortably, with Alyssa Healy contributing a brisk 38 runs, including a flurry of boundaries, and Ellyse Perry providing the finishing touches. The Australian bowlers, including Darcie Brown, played a pivotal role in restricting West Indies. However, Brown’s departure from the field with a tight left hamstring posed a concern for the home side. Despite the absence of Hayley Matthews, Australia’s sharp fielding, exemplified by Healy’s involvement in crucial run-out and stumping dismissals, underscored their dominance in the match.
