Meg Lanning: A good performance all-round. Happy with the way we adapted and tackles spin. We want to take ten wickets to slow down the run-rate. We have played here in a last few years and it is an amazing venue to play cricket. Everyone is in really good form. We speak about match-winning not outs from top four and Pez did that.

Bismah Maroof: We gave away too many wickets early on and gave away a few too many with the ball at the starts. The partnership between Aliya and me was a positive one, we talk about one of the top order batters batting deep. After my comeback it was very important for me to perform and both my mother and daughter were here. I want us to believe that we can win. We want to put up a good bowlers for the bowlers to do well.

Dev: "I don't see how this Australian team can be defeated.. They bat deep, are outstanding in the field and have competent bowlers.. "

Player of the match Alyssa Healy: Nice to get a win, did feel very good out there. The pitches have been tremendous. Gripped more than we thought but they have been amazing. We are into Wellington next, hope we get a nice, fresh strip against the Kiwis. (On her groin) It's good, I am getting old, but should be good before the next match.

Omaima Sohail was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets. But Pakistan would be disappointed by how the seamers Diana Baig and Fatima Sana bowled, both erring on the shorter side. In fact, Sana couldn't survive the onslaught from Healy, after she came into the attack. The points table isn't something Pakistan would want to look at.

7:49pm Clinical win for Australia, 12th straight one against Pakistan and 33rd off 35 since the last World Cup. 191 was never going to challenge them and Healy and Haynes' opening stand almost made it easy. Lanning then got going with Healy manning one end as Australia coasted through it. Healy shone yet again with 72, before Perry and Mooney closed it for Australia.
