A 3-0 array outcome was zero reduction than expected, though Australia’s ruthlessness was impressive.
Healy and Rachael Haynes, who corroborated adult her lass ODI century with 63 to take her total to 237 runs in a series, cruised towards a aim – nonetheless both were forsaken in a same over off Achini Kulasuriya – before Haynes was out unconditional with 37 runs needed.
