Phoebe Litchfield, a 19-year-old from Australia, performed yet another batting demonstration, scoring 67 runs off 61 deliveries and destroying Pakistan by a massive 10-wicket margin.

In only her second ODI of her career at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane, the young Litchfield scored an unbeaten fifty in just 19.2 overs to secure a series victory.

Litchfield won the player of the match award on Monday for her unbeaten 78-run knock off 92 balls in her debut match.

Australia took an early 1-0 lead in the three-match bilateral series thanks to her crucial knock and captain Meg Lanning’s quick fifty.

The left-handed batter, who is 19 years old, has scored 145 runs and a strikeout rate of 94.77.

“To get off the mark was the first job, but to stick with Meg and then hit the running runs, it’s a nice feeling,” Player of the Match Litchfield told reporters in the post-match press conference on Monday.

“I’d never batted with Meg or played with her and she’s just the best batting partner,” she added

“She knows exactly what to say and whenever I felt under pressure, she either scored a four or came down the other end and gave me some words of advice.”
