Australia women team on Wednesday equalled the record of 21 consecutive win after a domineering victory over the White Ferns.

Rachael Haynes and Co. also registered a thumping victory by 232 runs over the New Zealand women in the third and final ODI match.

It was White Ferns skipper Sophie Devine who won the toss and decided to bowl first. However, that didn’t go well in front of the mighty Australian batting lineup.

Opener Rachael Haynes (96 runs) and Alyssa Healy (87 runs) stitched partnership of 144 runs for the first wiket and laid the foundation for big total.

The middle order contributed voluntarily and reached a massive total of 325/5 after 50 overs. Amelia Kerr took 3/50 and dismissed the top three batters of the home team while Huddleston finished with two wickets on her name.

Put a stiff target of 326 runs on the board, NZ women had a dreadful yet a rare batting collapse. Skipper Sophie Devine got out on a duck while Natalie Dott managed to score 5 runs before getting caught by Gardner.

No other batter other than Amy Satterthwaite went past the 30 runs mark as the stumbled like cradles in just 27 overs.

Australian women had been very enthused throughout the white-ball series starting with the T20I series last month.

They also created a record with the second highest ever ODI total at home and win the match by 232 runs margin. Rachael Haynes became the player of the match for orchestrating the one-sided victory in the final ODI.
