Aust women win first warm-up in India
06:39 AEST Tue Jan 29 2013

Australia's women cricketers warmed up for the World Cup tournament with a 135-run over West Indies at Mumbai's MIG Stadium on Monday.

The Australians made 5-333 in their 50 overs but some players retired to give everyone a hit.

Opener Rachael Haynes contributed 61 and Jess Cameron 62.

Ellyse Perry (2-36) and Lisa Sthalekar (2-42) were the best of the Australian bowlers as the Windies women were all out for 198 after 44.3 overs.

Their most troublesome batter was Deandra Dottin with 52.

"It's always good to get a win first up and we're looking to follow that up with another dominant performance in our practice match against India tomorrow," said Southern Stars captain Jodie Fields.

Australia's first tournament match will be on Friday against Pakistan at Cuttack where all Group B matches will be staged following political threats against the Pakistan team in Mumbai.

Coach Cathryn Fitzpatrick said the Australians were not perturbed by the late switch.

"The opportunity to travel to another city will broaden the experience for our players, particularly the new players in the squad who have not played in India before," Fitzpatrick said.
