Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars retain Rose Bowl


 

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars have retained the Rose Bowl after career-best performances from Ellyse Perry and Leah Poulton steered them to a 10-wicket win over New Zealand at Junction Oval today.

 

Perry's 5-31, her first five-wicket haul in international cricket, was complemented beautifully by Poulton's unbeaten 104, her highest score for Australia.

 

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars have now taken a 4-0 series lead and as current holders of the Rose Bowl, they will retain the trophy regardless of the outcome of the four remaining matches in the series.

 

It was another emphatic display with bat and ball from the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, with the victory target of 163 chased down inside 33 overs by openers Poulton and Shelley Nitschke.

 

After a cautious start to the run chase, Poulton exploded as she and Nitschke set about overhauling the target that would ensure the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars retained the Rose Bowl.

 

Poluton's second one-day international century came from just 115 balls and included nine fours and three towering sixes.

 

Nitschke, who was named the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars' player of the year at the Allan Border Medal earlier this week, produced another strong all-round performance with 44 not out and 2-29 with the ball.

 

Earlier, Perry spearheaded the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars' effort with the ball. She inflicted the early damage with the wickets of New Zealand captain Aimee Watkins and Sara McGlashan before returning late the innings to clean up the tail.

 

Katey Martin was best for the White Ferns with 25 but she and a number of New Zealand's batters weren't able to convert their starts into a big score. After a bright start to their innings, New Zealand lost 3-0 in 12 balls to fall to 3-36 in the ninth over.

 

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars seized the initiative and bowled New Zealand out for 162 in the 49th over.

 

The next match in the Rose Bowl Series is a one-day international at Junction Oval in Melbourne tomorrow. Play starts at 10am.
