Alyssa Healy (55 off 38) and Beth Mooney (52 off 45) starred with the bat, effortlessly chasing down India’s total of 147, which appeared 15-20 runs short.

India Women vs Australia Women , India batted first.

Opting to bat first, India’s openers, Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana, initiated a brisk start, demonstrating great intent. Shafali’s aggressive stroke play and Mandhana’s elegant touch set the stage for India’s promising start. However, Australia, accustomed to bouncing back under pressure, regained control after breaking the opening partnership. The middle overs belonged to the visitors, who disrupted India’s momentum with timely wickets.

Shafali’s dismissal to a sharp catch from Healy and Mandhana’s exit to the deep were turning points. Jemimah Rodrigues fell cheaply to the short ball strategy, followed by another failure from Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma’s scratchy innings.

While India’s innings seemed headed for disappointment, Richa Ghosh and Amanjot Kaur injected life with a quick 36-run partnership. Pooja Vastrakar’s six on the final ball provided a fitting finish.

India’s total of 147 proved insufficient

Despite the late flourish, India’s total of 147 proved insufficient, evident as Australia’s openers, led by Healy’s aggressive powerplay, dominated the chase. Mooney, steady in her approach, compiled a fifty, guiding Australia to victory. A contentious moment with Healy’s catch provided a fortunate reprieve, but the Australian captain continued to dominate before falling to Deepti.

Vastrakar’s double-wicket burst offered a fleeting moment of joy for India, but Mooney’s resilience and Phoebe Litchfield’s contribution secured one more silverware for the Australian side.

Australia’s triumph, after being 0-1 down and inconsistent in the first two games, highlighted their ability to rise to the occasion in high-pressure encounters.
