Sophie Molineux makes dream return as Australia seal ODI series

MELBOURNE: Molineux took 3 wickets from her first 10 overs in ODI cricket since October 2021, as Bangladesh were bowled out for 97 after electing to bat first at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Nine of the ten wickets fell to spin, with left-armer Molineux backed up by leggies Alana King (2-15) and Georgia Wareham (2-30) and off-spinner Ashleigh Gardner (2-22).

Ellyse Perry then anchored Australia’s chase, hitting an unbeaten 35 from 50 deliveries as she steered the tourists to their target in 23.5 overs.

Sophie Molineux expressed her happiness about being back in a post-match press conference.

“It’s just nice to be back.”

“I think that all bowlers performed really well today, especially the spinners and then to get over the line, it’s a good day for us.

“The spinners were able to adjust and use their variations which is nice as well.”

“And I’m just happy to be playing cricket. I’m happy to be playing in any colours at the moment and even better to get a game for Australia again.
