ICC Women's Quadrangular Series Latest News
Australia Women won the Women's Quadrangular Series
Mar 06, 2007Australia has romped to a six-wicket victory over New Zealand in the final of the four-nation women's cricket tournament in Chennai.
Australia restricted New Zealand to 9-177 off their 50 overs before easing past their victory target with 11.2 overs to spare. Shelley Nitschke blasted 81 from 81 balls as she and Melissa Bulow (50) gave Australia a cracking start to their run chase with an opening stand of 120. Skipper Karen Rolton (1) and Kate Blackwell (3) both fell cheaply, but Australia was still able to stroll home with Lisa Sthalekar (32 not out) and Sarah Edwards (8no) polishing off the remaining runs. Sthalekar hit back-to-back fours from the first two balls of the 39th over to catapult Australia to 4-181 and victory.

Australia women wins a thriller to enter the final
Mar 04, 2007Missing a run-out chance by a whisker is understandable. Missing it by inches is pardonable.
On Saturday, the Indians set a new benchmark for poor throwing with what can be moderately described as unpardonable misses, in the 49th over. With Australia needing more than a run-a-ball to win, those minutes of absurdity blew India's chances to enter the final of the ICC women's quadrangular cricket series. What made it worse was that the fielders had both time and distance to exploit. Australia held its nerve despite the mayhem around, beating India by four wickets at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. The team will face New Zealand in the final on Monday.
Earlier, captain Mithali Raj's freakish luck with the coin continued, and she elected to bat. The Indian total was inflated in the middle and the latter part of the innings by Hemlata Kala and Anjum Chopra, after opener Karuna Jain held on for a stubborn 75 off 119 balls. Hemlata's squeaky-clean hits off Lisa Sthalekar were largely responsible for the total reaching 230. Her footwork was impeccable against the spinners, and the 41-ball 54 was studded with six fours and one telling blow off Sthalekar that cleared the ropes.
