Cuttack: It was a bowlers' day out at the Barabati Stadium as 20 wickets fell and only 259 runs were scored during the ICC Women's World Cup group B match between Pakistan and Australia in Cuttack on Friday.

Sadia Yousuf (3/30), Asmavia Iqbal (2/36) and Sumaiya Siddiqi (1/27) shared six wickets among them as Pakistan dismissed title contenders Australia for 175 in 46.1 overs after they decided to bat first.

But the Australians returned to shot out Pakistan for a paltry 84 in 33.2 overs, thanks to some good bowling from SJ Coyte (3/20), EA Perry (2/18), LC Sthalekar (2/19) and HL Ferling (2/10).
