Australia won by an innings and 284 runs

Australia sealed an innings-and-284-run win over South Africa with a day to spare in the one-off Test in Perth.

Resuming on 67-3 – needing a further 432 to make Australia bat again – Delmi Tucker and Chloe Tryon offered some resistance with 64 apiece at the Waca.

But South Africa lost their last six wickets for 59 runs, including their last three for two runs, as they were bowled out for 215 after tea.

Victory gave Australia a 12-4 win on points in the multi-format series.

The first women’s Test between the sides came after Australia won the T20 and one-day series 2-1, which included South Africa’s first victories over Australia in those formats.

Australia’s mammoth 575-9 declared in reply to South Africa’s first-innings 76 was built around Annabel Sutherland’s 210, the fourth-highest score in a women’s Test.

The 22-year-old claimed 2-11 in the second innings for match figures of 5-30, making her the first woman and only the fourth player to score a double century and take at least five wickets in a Test.

West Indies’ Denis Atkinson, England’s Ted Dexter and Pakistan’s Mushtaq Mohammad achieved the feat in men’s Tests.
