India Women vs Australia Women, Highlights: Aussies edge out India by 3 wickets in Commonwealth Games 2022

0

Chasing
a
healthy
target
of
155,
Australia
found
themselves
in
all
sorts
of
trouble
when
India
reduced
them
to
34
for
4
and
then
to
49
for
5.
Even
after
pushing
the
Aussies
to
110
for
7
in
the
15th
over,
India
had
their
noses
clearly
in
front.

But
Ashleigh
Gardener
(52
not
out,
35
balls,
9×4)
and
Grace
Harris
(37,
20
balls,
5×4,
2×6)
and
Alana
King
(18,
16
balls
2×4)
guided
Australia
home
with
an
over
to
spare
from
that
precarious
slot.

Earlier,
India
made
a
fighting
154
for
8
despite
the
regular
loss
of
wickets.
Shafali
Verma
(48,
33
balls,
9×4)
and
captain
Harmanpreet
Kaur
(52,
34
balls,
8×4,
1×6)
were
the
pillars
of
India
innings.

Grace
Harris

The
left-arm
orthodox
spinner
Jess
Jonassen
was
the
pick
of
Australia
bowlers,
bagging
4
for
22
in
4
overs.
India
answered
that
impeccable
effort
through
pacer
Renuka
Singh
who
bagged
four
wickets
for
18
runs
in
her
quota
of
4
overs.

But
as
it
turned
out,
Australia
found
a
way
to
squeeze
past
India
by
small
margin.
India
will
next
face
Pakistan
at
the
same
venue
on
Sunday
(July
31).

Earlier
India
skipper
Harmanpreet
said:

The
wicket
looks
good.
We
have
trained
hard
last
couple
of
months
and
see
what
works
for
us.
The
side
is
looking
positive.
We
are
going
with
three
spinners,
two
medium
pacers,
keeper
and
the
rest
batters.”

Meg
Lanning,
the
Aussie
captain
said:
“It
is
enjoyable
to
go
out
first
as
a
team
on
the
field.
Preparation
has
been
good,
we
are
ready
to
play.
We
have
played
in
big
competitions.
We
are
so
used
to
pressure
to
be
honest.
We
want
to
win
every
game
we
play.
It
is
a
new
tournament,
difficult
to
win,
but
want
to
enjoy
the
challenge.”

They
did
just
that.
