Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars Tour Match – Day 2 &
The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars have recorded a 116-run win over England Women’s A in a two-day tour match at Radlett Cricket Club.
The Australian side resumed batting on day two with Erin Osborne (33) and Alyssa Healy (20) at the crease. Each added vital runs to their overnight scores before their partnership was broken when Osborne was caught out off the bowling of Rebecca Grundy (3-29). Elyse Villani had no trouble finding the boundary as she scored a quick-fire 45 and was supported well late in the innings by Megan Schutt (9*) before she was caught out. The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars finished all out for 340, while Kate Cross (4-48) was the leading wicket-taker for England Women’s A.
Spinner Jess Jonassen (4-18) led the way for the Australian bowlers, claiming four scalps in her side’s win. It was Jonassen’s first international match since injuring her knee in January and she returned economical figures from her 10.2 overs. Ellyse Perry (3-49) got the visitors off to a solid start, claiming two successive wickets in the seventh over. Perry bowled Amy Jones (10) and followed up with the very next ball by bowling Danielle Wyatt (0). In the course of her 10 overs, Perry took a third wicket, with Rachael Haynes chipping in to catch Fran Wilson (22) out. Fellow fast bowler Holly Ferling (2-27) made light work of the middle order, while Haynes (1-3) added a wicket late in the game. Sarah Coyte (0-16), Erin Osborne (0-20), Sarah Elliott (0-21) and Gemma Triscari (0-21) also had decent spells with the ball. England Women’s A finished all out for 224 late on day two of the match, with their top scorer being opener and captain Lauren Winfield (74).
