Australia Women and South Africa Women are squaring off against each other in the series decider at Sydney. After losing the first ODI in a one-sided affair, South Africa Women made a historic comeback in the 2nd ODI on the back of a complete all-round performance by Marizanne Kapp. 

It was South Africa women’s first victory against Australia Women in the ODI format and this historical event could be the start of an enthralling rivalry in women’s cricket between two great cricketing nations.

However, in the series decider, Australia again showed their dominance in women’s cricket and are in a commanding position in the 3rd ODI where they have put on a steep total of 277 runs while batting first and South Africa was reeling at 63 for 4 in 14 overs till rain interrupted the play. 

Bizzare Incident during the match

Interestingly, during the match, an interesting incident took place that caught the attention of fans and created a bizarre situation that left the players and the fans bewildered. During Australia’s batting Alana King hit a six to an over-the-waist beamer only to realize that she lost her balance and hit the stumps with her bat. Watch the incident here:

However, it was signalled no-ball by the umpire and Australia’s Alana King managed to survive and got a six to her account but the whole incident created a funny yet odd situation for the players on and off the field.

Before that Australia won the toss and elected to bat first on the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Despite losing Phoebe Litchfield early, Australia got a solid start as their captain Alyssa Healy led the batting order with her crucial knock of 60 runs. As Healy departed, Beth Mooney took charge and led the Australia innings throughout to take them to an above-par score of 277 runs.

Beth Mooney remained not out at 82 runs at the end of Australia’s innings. Before rain interrupted the match, South Africa was stuck at a difficult position of 63 for 4 on the back of 2 wickets each by Kim Garth and Tahlia McGrath.
