Match 23, County Ground, Bristol 12 July, 2019

Toss won by Australia Women (decided to bowl)

Australia Women beat India Women by 8 wickets

Man of the Match: Meg Lanning



That's it! Australia seal the win in style, with Lanning smashing a boundary straight down the ground. They have outplayed India in all departments here,and well and truly deserved the win. Aussies win by 8 wickets.


Incredible from Perry, she is beaten in the air and misses the ball but gets her hand back in time to escape the stumping. Smart cricket from her!


50! And now Perry reaches her half-century, her 22nd overall. She struggled initially but it has been an important innings from her. Australia just 9 runs away from victory.


Australia are now doing it in boundaries..they have reached 200 and require just 27 runs more..Required rate is also less than 3.


Some rather ordinary fielding from India allowing Australia to get away here..The Indians seem to have given up here, judging by their body language..


50! Meg Lanning completes her half-century from 55 balls. Captain's innings from Lanning, who has led from the front and looked completely dominating in the innings so far.


FOUR! Cut away by Perry towards the boundary, another good shot from the Aussie batter. She seems to have settled after the initial hiccups.


20 overs left and Australia need 87 runs to win here.. Wickets are the only way for India to stay in the game, but at the moment it looks like a difficult task..


Lanning is the key wicket here for India, she looks well settled and is dominating the attack quite easily. Perry is still struggling to get going.


Indian spinners creating some pressure here, funny how a single wicket can change things so quickly..Perry gets off the mark after 9 deliveries..India needs to reap the rewards from this pressure, they need to get a wicket here.


WICKET! Run out costs Australia a wicket, that seemed to be the only way they could have been dismissed here. Mooney has to depart as she tries to steal a quick single. She misses her half-century and goes for 45.


FOUR! Cracking cover drive from Mooney, and another boundary for Australia. They are coasting home here without any fuss. Both these batsmen are easily scoring the runs.


SIX! Big hit by Lanning, she comes down the wicket and powers it over long off for the maximum. Big powerful hit that by Lanning!


WICKET! Bolton departs and big wicket for India, she again tries to smash the ball but gets a thin edge which is taken well behind the stumps by keeper Verma. She departs for 36.


FOUR! Bolton smashes another boundary, goes down on one knee and sweeps powerfully for a boundary.


50 partnership is up for Australia, that's a great start for the team chasing this total. They just need to keep their heads, and they should be home from here.


FOUR, FOUR and FOUR! Three Back-to-back boundaries there for Bolton, first comes down the track, then a big heave over the inner ring and then a heave towards mid-wicket. Australia are running away with the game here.


CHANCE!Bolton gets a bit of edge, and it flies past Ekta at point. That was a very difficult chance but a chance none the less.


Eight overs gone, and both the Australian openers look a bit settled now. India has not been able to get the early wickets they were after.They need to get a break-through sooner rather than later.


Harmanpreet Kaur has come into the attack, the off spinner will target the left handers batsman, moving the ball away from them.


FOUR! Pulled away, almost dismissed out of sight by Bolton there. But Jhulan is a bit disappointed with the delivery, it was way too short. Giving Bolton ample time to rock onto back foot and smash it.


Mooney now gets a couple of boundaries from Deepti's second over, Australia only dealing in boundaries for the moment. No 1s or 2s.


FOUR! Finally Australia get the first runs on the board after 15 deliveries, Bolton rocks back on the back-foot and pulls it towards the mid wicket region for a boundary. Great shot that!


Jhulan Goswami starts off well with a maiden and Deepti Sharma complements her from the other end with another maiden. Good start this from India, they need to build pressure on Australia and get some early wickets.

18:41(IST) #MithaliRaj has become the highest run scorer in women's ODI cricket. #INDvsAUS — cricketnext (@cricketnext) July 12, 2017

Both the teams are back on the field, and it will be Jhulan Goswami who will start the proceedings with the ball. Bolton and Mooney are at the crease for Australia..


FOUR! A boundary off the final delivery takes India to 226, they will be a bit disappointed as they would have liked to reach atleast a score of 250. Specially after a great innings from Punam Raut.The Indian bowlers will need to do a good job if they are to win this game here. Do join us back for the chase!


WICKET! Now Verma departs for 6 and Schutt gets second wicket of the day. She celebrates with  little bit of Waltz. The seventh wicket goes down for India as they struggle to get any kind of momentum.


WICKET! Another one bites the dust, and India have had a mini collapse here. Jhulan Goswami swings the bat but misses the ball and the ball crashes onto the stumps. Perry gets the wicket.


WICKET! India losing wickets in a heap here, Kaur has to make the long walk back to the dressing room now. Some brilliant work behind the stumps by Healy sees Kaur caught short of the crease. That's a big blow for India.

PREVIEW IND vs AUS: Following a 115-run thrashing by South Africa, the Indian women's cricket team will look to bounce back against Australia in their next group stage match of the ICC Women's World Cup at the Bristol Country Ground on Wednesday. After winning four matches on the trot, the Indian women on Saturday failed to put up a collective effort in the field against the Proteas, resulting in their first defeat of the tournament. Australia too succumbed to their first loss in five matches in their previous match against England and dropped to second spot in the points table. England, Australia and India share eight points each in the table to remain first, second and third respectively, divided by superior run-rate. India will hope their star batswoman Smriti Mandhana fires against Australia at the top after failing to get going in her previous two outings. Mandhana scored eight runs against Sri Lanka and two against South Africa. Skipper Mithali Raj will also look to open her arms against Australia after scoring a golden duck against South Africa.

SQUAD: Team India: Mithali Raj (Captain), Ekta Bisht, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Jhulan Goswami, Mansi Joshi, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Smriti Mandhana, Mona Meshram, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Nuzhat Parween, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma, Sushma Verma (WK), Smriti Mandhana.
Team Australia: Meg Lanning (Captain), Sarah Aley, Kristen Beams, Alex Blackwell, Nicole Bolton, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy (WK), Jess Jonassen, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Belinda Vakarewa, Elyse Villani, Amanda-Jade Wellington.
