Tayla Vlaeminck made a stunning return to international cricket on Sunday.
The former Strathdale-Maristians fast bowler took career-best figures of 3-13 to help Australia to a five-wicket win over India in Twenty20 clash at Manuka Oval in Canberra.
In her first game back from a knee injury, Vlaeminck bowled with great pace and accuracy.
The Indian batters struggled to cope with her well-directed short deliveries.
After opening with five dot balls, Vlaeminck struck with the final delivery of her first over when Indian number three top-edged a short ball to Nicola Carey.
Vlaeminck's second over went for nine runs - largely through edges past the keeper.
In her final over later in the innings, Vlaeminck struck twice with her pace too hot for the Indians to handle.
Vlaeminck and Elyse Perry (4-13) restricted India to 9-103 off its 20 overs.
In reply, Australia looked in trouble at 3-30 before Perry (49) completed a superb all-round performance by seeing the Aussies home with four wickets and seven balls to spare.
Australia had lost its opening match of the tri-series to England in a super over on Saturday.
The teams will play each other again at the Junction Oval in Melbourne next Friday, Saturday and Sunday to complete the series before the Twenty20 World Cup begins on February 21.
