Leggie Amanda-Jade Wellington picked up three wickets and Ashleigh Gardner removed Smriti Mandhana (12). "She (Mithali Raj's absence) is an important player for us", said Harmanpreet.

It was a sweet result for the visitors, who had lost to India in the World Cup semifinals. Then opener Nicole Bolton made an unbeaten century, her fifth in ODIs, to undo India's lower-order fightback.

The Southern Stars, who were eliminated by the Mithali Raj-led Indian side in semi-finals of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 in England back in July, have started hitting form after beating the India A side in two practice matches in Mumbai. "We didn't bowl according to the field".

"We are expecting more good performances from her". After seeing off a maiden over first up from Shikha Pandey, Bolton leaned into cover drives, rocked back for square cuts, and swept her way to forge three half-century stands.

Bolton said she enjoyed batting on a pitch, which assisted the bowlers too.
