Schutt’s hat-trick puts her in record books as Australia sweep ODIs

Antigua: Megan Schutt bowled her way into the record books while Meg Lanning became Australia’s leading women’s runscorer as the visitors completed an eight-wicket ODI win over the West Indies in Antigua on Wednesday.

The right-arm medium pacer claimed a ODI hat-trick to become the first Australian woman to achieve the feat and only the second female in world cricket to record two international three-peats.

Schutt cleaned up the tail in the last three balls of the West Indies innings, her 3-24 reducing the hosts to a moderate 180.

In reply, Australia reached their target with eight wickets to spare with Alyssa Healy (61 off 32 balls), Lanning (58no) and Ellyse Perry (33no) getting among the runs to complete a 3-0 series sweep.
