Germany win the bilateral series 2-1 against Italy in Bologna

MoneyGramThe German women’s team set out to play a bilateral series against Italy Women, one of our most competitive opponents, in Bologna from May 6-8.

The series consisted of two T20s and one 40 over game. After the long travel to Bologna, the girls had a session of training before the first game on Friday. Germany won the toss and elected to bat. After a good start by M. Daub (10) and S. Mannan (16), A. Doddaballapur (34*) and M. Theron (17) kept the scoreboard ticking. Germany put up a final score of 113 for the Italians to chase. The first Italian wicket fell at 40 runs with a catch in M. Beresford’s over. The Italian women lost successive wickets from then on, exceptional fielding by the German side led to 6 run outs. At 99/5 after 19 overs, S. McAnanama-B. was left with 14 runs to defend in the last over. With another two run outs and a bowled on the last ball, Germany defeated Italy by 10 runs. The day ended with a joint dinner with the Italians. Weiterlesen
