The match which was held at Kinrara Oval in Malaysia saw her fellow teammates Danni Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont scoring centuries each. Kate Cross had a 4-wicket haul to her name while Brunt dismissed 2 batters. England had won the game by a margin of 75 runs.
Katherine Brunt took the wickets of Sidra Ameen and Nida Dar to complete her 150 wickets. Dar became the 150th victim of Brunt.
The English pace-woman has played 121 one day internationals so far for her country, scalping wickets at an average of 22.90. The leading WODI wicket-taker of England became only the 6th woman in the history of the game to achieve this feat after Jhulan Goswami, Cathryn Fitzpatrick, Ellyse Perry, Anisa Mohammed, and Sana Mir.
Brunt has always been a frontline bowler of her team. She also has five 5-wicket hauls in women’s ODIs, the latest which came against India Women in February earlier this year.
England and Pakistan women teams will meet again for the second ODI of the series on December 12 at the same venue.
