Women’s World Cup: After Australia defeated West Indies in their ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup match, all-rounder Ellyse Perry revealed she has been working on her consistency.

Perry and Ashleigh Gardner each took three wickets as the West Indies were bowled out for 131 runs. Rachael Haynes’ unbeaten kock of 83-runs helped West Indies win by 7 wickets, here Basin Reserve, Wellington on Tuesday.

“It was really nice conditions here. The wind and the slope helped. It was effective to bowl in these conditions. I am working on consistency and then a little on the variations. I drag Ben (Sawyer) out a lot more than what he is paid for (laughs),” said Perry after the game.

“I like training. The more I bowl, the better is the rhythm. We have spoken in our group that this venue will be a kind of a base for us. Rach played really well,” she added.

With only six runs on the board, Australia’s chase for 132 got off to a poor start when Alyssa Healy was removed by Hayley Matthews in the third over. Shamilia Connell then took Meg Lanning’s wicket in the fourth over, bringing the team’s total to 7/2.

Perry then stepped to the crease and batted alongside Haynes for a couple of innings. Chinelle Henry interrupted their partnership in the 16th over, dismissing Perry after he had scored 10 runs.

Later, Beth Mooney and Haynes joined hands to guarantee that no further damage was done. They continued to thrash the West Indies bowlers, bringing their team home with seven wickets and with 20 overs to spare.
