Australia Women sealed yet another ODI series as they thumped Sri Lanka by 110 runs in the 2nd game of the 3-match ODI series at home. Rachael Haynes’ maiden ODI ton and Alyssa Healy’s 62-ball 69 played key role in pushing Australia’s total to 282/8, one run more than what they managed in the first match.

Sri Lanka Women came up with a matured batting performance this time as they looked to bat long rather than rushing for runs. However, they lost wickets in the 2nd half trying to match the high required rate and were restricted to 172/9.

All the statistical highlights from Australia’s yet another big win over Sri Lanka Women:

Australia Women equal their own record:

17 – Australia Women has won all the 17 ODI matches they played since the start of 2018. This is now the longest winning streak for any team in Women’s ODI cricket. Australia Women have equalled the World record held by themselves as they won 17 consecutive ODIs between 1997 and 1999.


Australia’s happy hunting venue:

11 – Australia Women won all the 11 ODI matches they played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane. No other team across Men’s and Women’s cricket has won more the eight matches without losing one at a venue in the ODI format.


Jonassen @ 100:

67 – Jess Jonassen completed 100 wickets in the ODI format in her 67th match. She became the 19th player overall and the 4th from Australia to bag 100 wickets in Women’s ODI cricket. The 67 matches Jonassen needed for this milestone are the 2nd fewest among the 19 bowlers. Former Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick picked up 100th ODI wicket in her 64th match.

7 – Number of 4-wicket hauls in ODIs for Jess Jonassen; only five players have more 4-fers in Women’s ODI cricket. Among Australians, Cathryn Fitzpatrick (11) is the only other woman with seven or more 4-fers in ODI format.


3 – Jonassen has taken three 4-wicket hauls in ODI cricket in 2019; the joint 2nd most ODI 4-fers for any player in a calendar year in Women’s cricket. Anisa Mohammed took as many as six 4-wicket hauls across 13 ODIs in 2011 while no other player has more than three in a year. For Australia, only Charmaine Mason in 2000 has claimed three 4-fers in a year before Jonassen.


Haynes ends her wait for a century:

32y 285d – Rachael Haynes, at the age of 32 years and 285 days, became the 3rd oldest Australian to score maiden ODI century in Women’s cricket. Only Ruth Buckstein (33y 124d) and Shelley Nitschke (33y 93d) were older than Haynes by the time of their maiden ODI ton for Australia Women. Haynes finds herself at No.14 in the overall list of oldest to maiden ODI ton in Women’s cricket.


Australia gets a good start:

17 – The century partnership between Alyssa Healy and Rachael Haynes is Australia Women’s first 100-run opening stand in 17 ODI matches since the start of 2018. Their last century opening stand in an ODI was against England Women at the end of 2017.


7 – Australia’s innings is only the 7th instance in Women’s ODI cricket where the first two wickets recorded a 100-run stand. Australia Women recorded four of those seven such instances as had two-century partnerships for the first two wickets in three different ODIs between 1997 and 2000.

New Zealand Women registered this feat twice during the 3-match ODI series against Ireland last year while England Women did it in an ODI way back against Australia in 1973 Women’s CWC.
