With the series already in the pocket, New Zealand women youth would be eyeing a whitewash when the two teams will collide for one last time in the series at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln. The hosts have been clinical in every facet of the game which can be reflected by the fact that they already have the series in their possession with one game to go.
Talking about the second game, the visitors were asked to bat first on a bright sunny day and the decision did not pay any dividends whatsoever as Annabel Sutherland crafted a magnificent ton. Her innings of 103 runs included 10 fours which helped her side to reach a formidable 248 on the board.
For the Whiteferns youth, all-rounder Jess Watkin was the pick of the bowlers scalping 4 for 35 in 7.3 overs, while Skye Bowden and Jacinta Savage got 2 wickets each.
New Zealand women youth’s reply was led by Lauren Down who scored her second half-century on the trot. This time she mustered 82 runs to her name from 98 deliveries which included 10 fours. Her well-composed knock proved critical at that time as the hosts claimed a well-fought victory by 2 wickets.
