A fine all-round performance from Ellyse Perry has helped Australia wrap-up their one day series against India in Vadodara.

India's chase got off to a sedate start with Punam Raut unable the find the gaps on the offside.

India got off to a strong start and were 0-88 in the 18th over before left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen removed the unsafe Smriti Mandhana who'd rocketed to 67 off just 40 balls.

Lanning's ploy worked in Australia's favour as India kept losing wickets at regular intervals. "I'm definitely better than what I was", Raj, the ODI captain, said at the pre-game press conference on Wednesday, minutes after she wrapped up her training session at the Reliance Stadium in Baroda. Raut's inability to pierce the gaps and rotate the strike put further pressure on Mandhana to accelerate, and she did well to speed to 67 off 53 balls before the opening was found by Jess Jonassen. Kaur and Bisht picked up a wicket each. 17-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues could not do much on her ODI debut and it remains to be seen if she keeps her place after Mithali's return. When all was done and dusted for India, in came Vastrakar applied resistance. Despite a mini-collapse, Australia recovered well, thanks to a 96-run fifth-wicket stand between Mooney (56) and Perry (70 not out) to post 287 for 9. She would be looking forward to continue her good form while her partner Alyssa Healy would not want to throw away a promising start again. Veda Krishnamurthy too fell cheaply with the 21-year old Wellington having her stumped by Healy.

With Bolton and Rachel Haynes falling in a space of nine balls, India had a chance to capitalise, but Perry and Mooney ensured that Australia wouldn't waste their solid platform.

Meanwhile, Shikha Pandey (3) and Poonam Yadav (2) stooped Australian batting attack by taking five wickets.
