Lanning, McGrath shine in Aussie T20 win

Captain Meg Lanning and allrounder Tahlia McGrath have both put Ireland’s bowlers to the sword as Australia’s women continued their impressive Commonwealth Games build-up with another comfortable T20I triumph over Ireland.

Lanning led the way with 74 off 49 balls while McGrath smashed 70 off 45 on Thursday, enabling the visitors to pile up 4-182 off their 20 overs, which proved far too much for the outclassed hosts at the Northern Ireland venue of Bready.

In reply, Ireland were reduced to 7-119, with Megan Schutt, Jess Jonassen and Alana King all doing the damage with a couple of wickets apiece as Australia wrapped up another handsome 63-run win.

It was their second straight win – their other match was rained off – as they went to the top of their Tri-Nation 20 series table on 10 points, with Pakistan on six and winless Ireland yet to pick up a point.
