Bolton's opening partner Alyssa Healy made 38 and captain Meg Lanning 33 before being run out. With this Australia have taken 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series against India Women. Her innings helped India out 200 runs on the scoreboard.

A 76-run partnership for the eighth wicket saved India the blushes before being bowled out for 200 runs against Australia in the first One-day worldwide of the ICC Womens Championship. Australia women's beat India women's by 8 wickets in the first ODI.

India would have disintegrated for much less than 200 if not for a dash of brilliance from Pooja Vastrakar, who was playing just her second ODI, and a reassuring 41 from the bat of wicketkeeper Sushma Verma.

"I think the lesson I've learned in the subcontinent is I've had fog issues with my glasses, so I've gone away from that and I've got the little towel out there to make sure I actually see the ball", Bolton said.

"It was a hard day for us". Indian women cricket team came back after claiming the limited-overs series in South Africa, the Bollywood veteran sent out a tweet to congratulate the winners but it had an error.


For Nicole Bolton, the Player of the Match for her unbeaten century, it was a flawless game especially considering Australia's last outing against India resulted in the 2013 World Cup champions getting dumped out of the 2017 tournament in England a year ago courtesy of Kaur's own special innings.

India's women cricketers have begun to get the space they deserve, be it on the billboard, in the media or in the hearts of sports fans.

Mumbai teen Jemimah Rodrigues, who made her ODI debut today, had a miserable outing. We didn't have enough on the board and then we didn't bowl according to the field. "We need to improve our batting and the bowlers need to contribute better", she added.

Australians were not only disciplined with the ball, they outdid India with the bat as well. Bowler Pooja Vastrakar along with wicket-keeper batswomen Sushma Verma put 76-run partnership for the eighth wicket.

Batting only for the third time in global cricket, Vastrakar's 51-ball 50 featured seven fours and a six that lent credence to her established pinch-hitting prowess in the domestic circuit.
