However, your efforts were in vain since Australia swept the 3-0 series and overtook New Zealand to lead the Women's Championship points table with 16 points in nine games, four of their neighbors. Pakistan, which only managed to win four of its nine matches, came in sixth place, ahead of Sri Lanka and South Africa.
Ellyse Perry of Australia and Captain Meg Lanning, who scored 124 in the second ODI, maintained their first and second place respectively in the ranking of hitters. Perry (681) leads Lanning (675) by only six points. Ashleigh Gardner advanced both the batting and bowling lists with her full effort in the series that included 62 undefeated for 37 balls and 3 for 44 in the final game. Now it is ranked among 17 bowlers and 50 among batters.
For Pakistan, Nahida Khan is the best battery with 25 points, 17, 66 and 37 in the ODI series.
