Beth Mooney’s elevation to one-day opener has paid dividends, with the 29-year-old smacking her third ODI century during Australia’s 101-run victory over Pakistan at North Sydney Oval on Saturday afternoon.
The left-hander reached triple figures in just 91 deliveries during the dead rubber, helping the hosts register 9-336 from their 50 overs, Australia’s fourth-highest ODI score in history.
Mooney plundered 14 boundaries and four sixes before she was stumped in the 36th over for 133 (105), her highest score in ODI cricket. It was also the highest individual score in women’s ODIs at North Sydney Oval.
Pakistan could only muster 7-235 in response, with Ash Gardner taking 3-30 from 10 overs as Australia cruised towards a 3-0 whitewash.
