India’s Historic Test Victory against Wankhede.

The turning point may have come late on Day 3 when Harmanpreet Kaur’s off-break bowling claimed two crucial wickets, including the stubborn Tahlia McGrath, who faced 177 deliveries on a challenging surface. Australia relied on Ashleigh Gardner and Annabel Sutherland to weather the early morning session on Day 4, as Host aggressively sought quick breakthroughs.

Sneh Rana | Player of the Match: It feels amazing, standing here receiving this award, fantastic win by our team. No one called me night-watchman because I can bat. First time batting with Smriti and we were enjoying each others’ company. Catch drops are part of the match. Everyone wants to contribute. Even I can drop catches, so I don’t feel bad. I try to come back harder. Test matches are taking place in India after a long time, Test match gives a different vibe. The team environment in the last 15 days and the support that we have been receiving, it’s really amazing. Two home Tests and we have won both. I think it will attract a lot of youngsters.

In the second over of the day, Pooja Vastrakar delivered a superb yorker to Gardner, resulting in an LBW appeal initially turned down by umpire Anil Chaudhary. However, Harmanpreet’s timely review overturned the decision, although host lost another review in the same over. Sneh Rana, who troubled England recently, continued her impressive performance, dismissing Sutherland with a well-executed sweep that ended in a catch to Yastika Bhatia.

Despite the umpire’s initial ruling against India, Harmanpreet’s strategic use of the TV umpire confirmed Sutherland’s departure, setting the stage for a potential collapse. Alana King’s forward defense resulted in her playing the ball onto the stumps, and with two exceptional deliveries from Rajeshwari Gayakwad to Kim Garth and Jess Jonassen, Australia collapsed from 251 for 8 to 261 all-out.

Shafali Verma’s early dismissal didn’t deter India, as Smriti Mandhana and Richa Ghosh forged a partnership, denying Australia any further breakthroughs. Ghosh, however, couldn’t escape the clutches of the Aussie spinner, eventually falling to McGrath at mid-on. Jemimah Rodrigues accelerated India’s charge towards victory, and Mandhana sealed the historic win with a powerful shot down the ground for a four. This landmark achievement will be etched in the annals of Indian cricket history.
