Southern Stars steal nine-wicket win over Pakistan

WARWICK pace bowler Delissa Kimmince took 1-8 off two overs as the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars recorded a nine-wicket win over Pakistan in the first Women's T20 (WT20 INTL) of the Commonwealth Bank

International Women's Series on the Gold Coast yesterday.

The team lines up for game 2 of the series today at the Gold Coast District Cricket Club Ground.

The visitors were bowled out for 92 in their 20 overs, which the Australian side chased down at the loss of only one wicket, finishing 1-95 in the 13th over.

Erin Osborne was named player of the match for her career best T20 figures of 4-19. Kimmince was sixth bowler used and took 1-8.

Pakistan openers Marina Iqbal (22) and Nain Abidi (20) were the leading run-scorers for their side before their lower order suffered a batting collapse, losing their last five wickets for eight runs.

Osborne claimed 4-19 while Sarah Coyte (3-9) snared her three wickets in the final over.

Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars openers Elyse Villani (58 not out) and Jess Jonassen (19) set up their side's run chase with a 59-run partnership before Jonassen was caught out at deep mid-wicket.

Captain Meg Lanning added an unbeaten eight to push her side past their set target.

Nida Dar (1-15) was the sole wicket-taker for

Pakistan. Kimmince was down to bat at No.6 but was not required

The two teams will meet in the second T20 of the series on Sunday 31 August at Gold Coast District Cricket Club.
