Australian captain Meg Lanning was the difference again as they retained the Rose Bowl with a 4 wicket win over the White Ferns in game two of the ODI series in Brisbane. 79 from captain Sophie Devine and 69 from Amy Satterthwaite set Australia a target of 253. Lanning scored her 14th ODI century, her unbeaten 101 got them home in the 46th over to record their 20th straight ODI win, one short of the world record. Devine admits her bowlers were unable to keep the pressure on the Australians and in particular Lanning.
