Crowds Enthrall as Australia and India Engage in High-Scoring Battles

India and Australia women have produced two high-scoring matches in front of the packed crowds in Mumbai. They now move from DY Patil stadium to Brabourne Stadium for the final three T20Is. With the series scoreline leveled at 1-1, the third T20I is set to take place on December 14th. 

A record crowd of over 44000 witnessed one of the greatest T20 matches on Sunday, where India defeated the world champions in a super over on the back of brilliant performances from Smriti Mandhana and Richa Ghosh. 

Indian bowlers yet again had no answers to McMooney as the pair smashed an unbroken 158-run partnership for the second wicket to power Australia to 187/1. Beth Mooney made up for her early struggles and finished with 82 not-out in 54 balls while Tahlia McGrath struck 70* off 51. 

India openers came out with all guns blazing, adding 76 runs in 8.3 overs before Shafali Verma fell for 34 off 23. Smriti Mandhana scored a blistering 79 off 49 to keep India in the game before Richa Ghosh hammered three sixes late in the innings. Devika Vaidya hit a boundary on the final ball to force a super over. 

India belted 20 runs in the super over, with two sixes and a four from Mandhana and Ghosh combined. Healy smashed a four off the first ball in the chase but then Renuka Singh had Ashleigh Gardner caught at straight long off on the third ball. Healy hit a four and a six on the last two balls but it was too late. 

Team News

India Women were unchanged in the second match. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma have been explosive at the top but Jemimah Rodrigues and Harmanpreet Kaur do need to step up. Richa Ghosh has been scarily good in her role as the finisher while Deepti Sharma continues to add value in both departments. Renuka Singh leads the pace attack with Anjali Sarvani being very impressive in her debut series. Meghna Singh has bowled only three overs across two games and has conceded 41 runs. She could be replaced. Deepti and Radha Yadav handle spin responsibility. 

Australia have tried to experiment a bit, trying out newer players such as Kim Garth, Phoebe Litchfield and Heather Graham. Darcie Brown, who sat out in the first two games, is likely to come in for this fixture. Jess Jonassen getting ruled out was a blow to their bowling attack. In the batting department, Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath have been terrific. The likes of Ashleigh Gardner, Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland haven't got time with the bat. 

Key Players 

Smriti Mandhana is one of the superstars of the game and delivered an incredible knock in the previous game. The left hand batter smashed 79 off just 49 with four sixes and nine fours in regular time. Mandhana has amassed 2544 runs in T20I career, averaging 28 at a strike rate of 124, including 19 fifties. 

Beth Mooney struck an unbeaten 89 off 57 in the series opener and followed it up with 82 not-out in 51 balls in the second game. Her consistency is ridiculous in T20I cricket, where she has piled on 2064 runs at an average of 41 while striking at 125. Mooney has scored two hundreds and 15 fifties at this level.
