A mountain of runs broke in Sydney, Australia on Sunday. The match was of Twenty20 and the Sri Lankan team was in front of the host team.
Total 393 runs scored in 40 overs. 55 times the ball went outside the boundary.
This competition was between the women teams, so there was less discussion before the match. But the opener players of both the teams made this match memorable by scoring a stormy century.
Both teams opener scored centuries
Host Australia won but Sri Lanka captain Chamari Attapattu's innings was well appreciated by the fans and critics. He scored 113 runs in 66 balls with the help of 12 fours and six strong sixes. However, his captaincy innings could not give victory to Sri Lanka.
And the reason for this was the inning of Beth Mooney, who scored Chamari Attapattu's first century on this ground. Australia's opener Beth Mooney decided the stance of the match through her strong innings.
Beth Mooney's new record
He also scored only 113 but had a better strike rate. He did not score any sixes in his innings but sent the ball out of the boundary 20 times, that is, through a total of 80 runs. This is a new record in Twenty20 cricket.
Even before this, the record of the highest fours in Twenty20 international cricket was in the name of Beth Mooney. He had earlier scored 19 fours in the match against England on 21 November 2017. The record of most fours in a Twenty20 match in men's cricket is from Australia's Aaron Finch. Who scored 16 fours in 76 innings against Zimbabwe on 3 July 2018. He also hit 10 sixes in this innings and played a total of 172 runs.
Beth Mooney faced 61 balls and had a strike rate of 185.24. His fellow opener Alyssa Healy scored 43 runs off just 21 balls. Ashley Gardner, who came in to bat at number four, faced 27 balls and scored 49 runs with the help of one four and four sixes. Australia's team managed to score 217 runs for four wickets in the prescribed 20 overs.
This is the second highest score of Australia's women's team in Twenty20 cricket. Captain Chamari Attapattu kept the Sri Lankan team with a target of 218 runs, against a century in the innings, but no other batsman of the team could support them and Sri Lanka's team could score 176 runs for seven wickets in 20 overs.
Australia won this match by 41 runs. Australia have taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
