Shelley Nitschke and Lauren Ebsary stroked fine half-centuries as defending champions Australia defeated Pakistan by 107 runs in a Super Six stage match of the ICC Women’s World Cup in Australia on Monday, keeping alive their hopes of reaching the final.

Nitschke scored a flawless 56 while Ebsary hit a dogged 51 as Australia scored 229-5 in theirs allotted 50 overs after electing to bat first. Pakistan, in turn, always looked like they were struggling against an experienced and penetrative bowling attack and were eventually bowled out for 122 in 45.1 overs, despite having been 65-1 at one stage. It was Pakistan’s highest score against Australia after they were bowled out for 23 and 27 in the previous two matches against the five-time champions in Melbourne (Australia) and Hyderabad (India) in 1997.
