After scoring 427-1 in the first of three T20Is, Argentina's women's team continued their big run scoring in the next two games as they racked up over 1000 runs in the series.
In the second game on Saturday, Chile won the toss and - surprinsingly given the events of the previous day - chose to bowl first again. There was improvement of sorts as this time they took six wickets, but Argentina were still able to rack up 300 with Maria Castiñeiras contributing 105 from 56 balls for her first T20I century.
Chile were then bundled out for just 19 with only four runs coming from the bat. Costanza Sosa took three wickets for four runs from her three overs, whilst Albertina Galan bowled one over and took three wickets without conceding a run.
Argentina won the toss in the third game on Sunday and, perhaps with an eye on the 1000 runs series mark, chose to bat first. The wickets largely deserted the Chilean bowlers this time as Argentina scored 333-1 from their 20 overs with Veronica Vasquez and Maria Castiñeiras putting on an unbroken 290 for the second wicket.
Vasquez finished on 107 from 67 balls whilst Castiñeiras became the first woman to score back to back T20I centuries with 155 from 77 balls, the fourth highest score in women's T20Is.
Chile were again deficient in runs off the bat with just one of their 22 runs not going down to extras. Eight batters were out for ducks with one absent hurt.
The series was certianly a bruising one for Chile and whilst it's on the face of it it's hard to see what they have gained, in my opinion playing against better opponents is always a worthwhile exercise. Lessons will certainly have been learned and the only way from here is (hopefully) up.
