Lanning made 126 off just 65 balls, her innings including 18 fours and four sixes, to power her side to 191-4 after she had won the toss and opted to bat first.

Delissa Kimmince contributed 35 to the total, the opener helping put on a second-wicket stand worth 86 in 62 deliveries.

Ireland's reply suffered a poor start when opener Emma Flanagan was dismissed for a duck in the second over, caught off the bowling of Jess Jonassen (1-19).

Clare Shillington (22) and Isobel Joyce - who top-scored with 28 - put on 48 for the second wicket, but Australia were always in full control.

Ellyse Perry claimed 2-17 off her three overs and there were also two wickets for Erin Osborne as Ireland finished up on 113-7, meaning they slipped to a 78-run defeat.
