Mooney and McGrath to the fore as Australia clinch ODI series

Standout performances from Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath enabled Australia to recover their composure after the heavy defeat three days ago to secure the ODI series in convincing style. It means they are 8-4 ahead in the multi-format contest leading into the Test match, and can't be overtaken. Mooney moored Australia's innings with an unbeaten 82 off 91 balls while never finding top stuff after Alyssa Healy had struck a fresh 50 years. South Africa kept themselves in the game by eliminating McGrath and Debris Gardner with hardly a pause in between, however Annabel Sutherland and Alana Lord made light of convenient innings the request close by Mooney. McGrath and Kim Garth then, at that point, caused the huge harm with the ball. Garth's swing represented Laura Wolvaardt and Anneke Bosch, while McGrath had Tazmin Brits and the vital wicket of Marizanne Kapp both held in the somewhere down in about four balls. Downpour hindered South Africa's pursuit after 14 overs and for some time seemed as though it may not yield to permit the game to be finished, yet it continued as a 31-over challenge. South Africa quickly required ten an over, which demonstrated far past them and wickets fell in a hurry remembering three for an over for Ruler, who was a bristle away from a full go-around. South Africa had made a reassuring beginning after Healy won another throw. Phoebe Litchfield's lean series proceeded when she tracked down cover, and after seven overs Australia had been held to 21 for 1 with Kapp delivering an initial spell of 4-2-5-0. Be that as it may, Healy, who was given a day to day existence on 27 whenever an exceptionally extreme possibility was spilled at profound square-leg, began to expand the rhythm close by Ellyse Perry as the pair added 82 for the subsequent wicket. Masabata Klaas created a splendid inswinger to eliminate Perry, and subsequent to passing fifty from 61 balls, Healy fairly thoughtlessly flicked to profound square-leg. Mooney, who took 13 balls to get off the imprint, and McGrath fabricated another significant stand, in spite of the fact that progress was many times difficult work. McGrath broke the shackles with five continuous limits off Ayanda Hlubi yet was beaten by one that slipped through from Chloe Tryon in the following over. Gardner was then stuck lbw by Kapp to leave Australia 187 for 5 in the 37th over. Mooney raised her fifty from 71 balls and would proceed to add 32 from her next 20 conveyances as Australia advanced in the last ten overs. A support of great gets - one by Wolvaardt at cover and one more by Nadine de Klerk in her completion - imprinted Australia's desires somewhat, yet their all out was given a lift when 13 runs successfully came from one conveyance. Lord swung an enormous full throw from Klaas for six (obliterating her stumps simultaneously) and afterward dispatched the free hit too. Wolvaardt has not figured out how to get moving in the ODIs and before long edged Garth to initially slip. At the opposite end, Darcie Brown, who supplanted a refreshed Megan Schutt, was bowling with great speed and struck Brits a terrible blow on the wrist. Brits battled through the agony prior to finding profound midwicket and South Africa's best expectation then, at that point, disappeared when Kapp, who had been so motivational in the subsequent game, helped McGrath under the control of profound in reverse square-leg. Either side of the downpour delay, de Klerk and Sune Luus added 50 yet Australia had a lot of breathing space.
