Australia wobbled a fair bit but recovered in time to make it an incredible seven wins in a row in the ongoing Women's World Cup as they defeated Bangladesh by five wickets in their final league game on Friday, March 25. Chasing 136 in a rain-affected encounter, Australia were rocked early by Bangladesh's sprightly bowling unit that reduced their much more able opposition to 41/4. Salma Khatun provided the star turn as she first removed Alyssa Healy before castling the skipper Meg Lanning for a duck. Beth Mooney found fine support from Annabel Sutherland as the pair assuaged the nerves to preserve Australia's unbeaten record in the marquee competition this year.
Wild wind, scoreboard issues, fading light and a tricky chase...there was a bit happening at Basin Reserve today!— Australian Women's Cricket Team 🏏 (@AusWomenCricket) March 25, 2022
