Update : 29 Mar 2014, 05:54 PM

Australia thrashed Pakistan by 94 runs to set the new record of a win by the highest margin in terms of runs in the women’s World Twenty20 at the Sylhet International Stadium yesterday.

Australia scored 185 for two and later restricted Pakistan on 91 for nine to set the new record.

Earlier on the day, South Africa women’s crushed Ireland by 86 runs to wipe out the then record set by England who crushed Bangladesh by 79 runs recently. However, the new record by the Proteas lasted few hours before Austrlia set the new mark.

South Africa put up a total of 165/5 after opting to bat first thanks to openers Lizelle Lee and Dane van Niekerk’s 57-run opening stand. Lee’s 40-ball 43 was the highest while Niekerk added 25. Later Chloe Tryon added a stormy 12-ball 35 and Sune Luus added 29 from only 10 deliveries that steered them to the big total.

Ireland was bundled out for 79 with Shabnim Ismail and Niekerk picking up three wickets each conceding 5 and 10 runs respectively. Only three of Ireland batters could manage to reach the double figures with Mary Waldron being the top scorer with 33.
