Australia Women 2, South Africa Women 0
  • Lanning overachieves while under the weather

    Meg Lanning most likely would not have come out to bat despite a stomach bug on most nights with her team chasing 103 but made a crucial 30 not out after Australia slipped to 9 for 3

  • Blackwell, Lanning give Australia easy win

    In a clash that briefly flirted with the gripping, it was Australia's experience that helped them ride a top-order wobble as they began their title defence with a six-wicket win against South Africa at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur
