CWG 2022 India Women vs Australia Women Final Match Highlights: India captain Harmanpreet Kaur played a gutsy knock of 65 runs but couldn’t save India from a defeat as Australia won the match by nine runs to win the inaugural Commonwealth Games cricket gold medal. Chasing a total 0f 162, India lost Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma cheaply. Harmanpreet added 96 runs for the third wicket with Jemimah Rodrigues before the latter lost her wicket on 33. Harmanpreet and Pooja Vastrakar were dismissed off consecutive deliveries by Ashleigh Gardner, putting Australia in control of the proceedings. After that, India kept on losing wickets at regular intervals, and were bowled out for 152 in 19.3 overs. Earlier, Beth Mooney’s 61 off 41 guided Australia to 161 for 8 in 20 overs. Radha Yadav had turned the game in India’s favour with her superb fielding. She first ran out Meg Lanning and then took a sensational catch to dismiss Tahlia McGrath. This happened after a good attack from Mooney and Lanning had helped Australia rebuild their innings after suffering early blow. Renuka Thakur had struck early to dismiss Alyssa Healy. Australia skipper Lanning won the toss and opted to bat first against India in the ongoing final match at CWG 2022. The Harmanpreet-led side entered the final after defeating England by a narrow margin of four runs, while Australia registered a five-wicket win over New Zealand to advance to the knockout stage. It is worth noting that Australia are unbeaten in the tournament so far. They won all their three games played in Group A before beating New Zealand in semi-final. Interestingly, Australia had also defeated India in the group stage by registering a three-wicket win over the Harmanpreet-led side in a closely contested game.(SCORECARD)
