Phoebe Litchfield & Annabel Sutherland v IRE, today
The last time both Australian openers made centuries in the same women's ODI, was Belinda Clark & Lisa Keightley against Pakistan at Wesley Cricket Ground, Melbourne in Feb 1997.
Annabel Sutherland joins Litchfield in reaching her maiden ODI hundred (94 BF).
Sutherland is first Australian woman to have made centuries in both Tests and ODIs before their 22nd birthday.
20 year old Phoebe Litchfield brings up her maiden ODI century (108 balls faced, 13x4).
Meg Lanning is the only Australian woman to have been younger when scoring their first hundred in the format.
Phoebe Litchfield & Annabel Sutherland become the fourth Australian women's opening pair to share a double century stand in an ODI.
Australia 200/0 (32.4) need 18 off 104.
This is Australia women's highest partnership for any wicket in an ODI since Haynes & Healy made 216 in the World Cup against West Indies on 30 Mar 2022.
The last instance of two Australian women aged under 22 making half-centuries in the same ODI, was Meg Lanning & Sarah Coyte, against New Zealand at North Sydney Oval in Dec 2012.
Phoebe Litchfield brings up her third ODI fifty.
At 20 years 101 days, Litchfield is the youngest Australian woman to have made three 50+ scores in ODIs.
Ireland go from 159/3 to 217 all out (49.0), but this is still comfortably their highest total against Australia.

Delany 36 (44)
Orla Prendergast now has Ireland women's highest score in all formats against Australia, beating Miriam Grealey's 57 in an ODI at College Park, Dublin in 2001.

Another player missing out today due to injury is Mary Waldron. This was set to be her final international match.
Waldron retires after a 13 year international career that saw her earn 144 caps.
'Healy, Perry ruled out of final ODI, McGrath to captain'
This is the first time Australia women have played a match without any of Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry or Meg Lanning since a T20I v England at Derby on 25 Jun 2009.
The last ODI in which none of the trio featured was v England at Sydney during the Super 6 of the 2009 World Cup.
Dempsey stumped by Healy off Jonassen, and with Waldron absent, that closes the game.
Ireland went from 109/1 to 168/9 (38.2)
Hunter 50 (66)
Lewis 37 (51)
Wareham 3-33, to go with 29*
Australia win by 153 runs.
Really absorbing test considering the scoreline. We've dodged a lot of bullets, some with excellent D, some with a little help from Aussie discipline. Stu McC looks our best bet when we have had chances, we'll just need more of them, striking early after break with extra man would be a good start
