India Women’s first International game at home after their CWC17 campaign didn’t go as expected as they were outclassed by Australia in the first ODI of the 3-match series. India, who lost the services of Jhulan Goswami for this series, took the field in this game without Mithali Raj as well. India posted 200 in the 50 overs with contributions from Pooja Vastrakar and Sushma Verma after a top-order failure. The Aussie women chased down the target in 32.1 overs for the loss of two wickets with Nicole Bolton scoring a 101-ball 100.

All the stats and numbers that were recorded during the first ODI in Vadodara:

32.1 – Australia’s chase is the 2nd quickest 200+ run-chase in Women’s ODI cricket. England chased down 205 against Sri Lanka in the 2017 Women’s CWC in only 30.2 overs.


51* – Pooja Vastrakar became the first woman to score a fifty in the ODI format while batting at No.9 and a lower position. The previous highest score in Women’s cricket at No.9 was 48 by New Zealand’s Lucy Doolan in 2009 against England.

51* – Vastrakar is also the first India woman to score an ODI fifty while batting at No.8 and a lower position. Amita Sharma scored an unbeaten 47 batting at No.8 in the 2011 Rajkot ODI against West Indies.

64 – Innings Meg Lanning needed for completing 3000 runs in ODI cricket. She is the 2nd fastest in Women’s ODI cricket to reach this milestone after Belinda Clark (62 innings). In ODI cricket (including Men’s), Lanning is the 3rd quickest to 3000 ODI runs after Hashim Amla (57 innings) and Belinda.

The Australian skipper scored 2999 runs in 63 ODI innings before this game. She became the 4th Australian and 12th player overall to complete 3000 runs in the Women’s ODI format.

76 – Pooja Vastrakar and Sushma Verma’s 76-run partnership is the 3rd highest for the 8th wicket in Women’s ODI cricket and also the joint 3rd highest for 8th and lower wicket. England’s SL Clarke and NJ Shaw put on 85* against Scotland in 2001 while JM Fields and EA Osborne put on 80 for Australia in 2012 against England for the 8th wicket. Alex Blackwell and KM Beams shared 76 for the 10th wicket in the 2017 Women’s CWC semis against India.

100* – Nicole Bolton became the first player to score a century in Women’s ODI while chasing against India in India. Overall, Bolton is the 4th player to score an ODI ton against India Women in India after Meg Lanning (128 in 2012), Suzie Bates (122 in 2007) and Charlotte Edwards (109 in 2013).
