  • Bachchan makes error in tweet praising India women's cricket team, apologises

Australia boast of a formidable line-up comprising skipper Meg Lanning, all-rounders Ellyse Perry, Elyse Velani, wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy. Shikha Pandey was the only bowler to scalp a wicket for India, that of Healy.

Bolton's fourth ODI century, in her first-ever worldwide appearance in India, put her in the elite company of her captain Meg Lanning, New Zealand's captain Suzie Bates and England great Charlotte Edwards as the women who have recorded the feat of a three-figure score on these shores.

Australia bowling: Megan Schutt 10-1-37-1, Ellyse Perry 7-0-46-0, Ashleigh Gardner 7-0-34-1, Nicola Carey 10-2-28-0, Amanda-Jade Wellington 6-0-24-3, Jess Jonassen 10-1-30-4.

India were skittled for 200 in 50 overs, with only Pooja Vastrakar's record breaking 51 from No.9 giving the bowlers a target to defend.

Antonio Conte apprises on Chelsea's injuries before Crystal Palace match
Countering this, Palace are without a win in six matches and have lost their last three games with the squad shorn of key players. The gaffer hints that he trusts the two forwards but refused to guarantee them a place in the starting line-up against Palace.

Indian pacer Shikha Pandey claimed a wicket while Australian spinner finished with a four-wicket haul.

"Both of them are very talented and whenever Sushma gets the chance, she always contributes for the team and today also she batted well and Pooja did the same as we've seen her batting in domestic cricket (for Madhya Pradesh)", said Kaur. She is the 2nd fastest in Women's ODI cricket to reach this milestone after Belinda Clark (62 innings).

Bolton, who finished the day unbeaten on 100, said the tourists were rewarded for taking the game to India. But happy that the lower middle-order batted well.

Her body of work under the beating sun in Vadodara was evidence enough of the hard yards she's put in to be able to seamlessly adapt to the typically slower-than-most wickets of the subcontinent.

On a day when the temperature hovered around 40-degree Celsius, Australia avenged its stunning loss to India at the Women's World Cup previous year in splendid fashion. Then Pooja Vastrakar's maiden fifty and Sushma Verma's gritty 41 revived things somewhat.

Bolton was sporting contact lenses instead of her trademark specs as she smashed her fourth ODI century in an emphatic eight-wicket triumph in Vadodara.

Poonam Raut and Smriti Mandhana got India off to a bright start with a flurry of boundaries, but the spinners pegged them back.
