The five-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series between Australia and India came to an end earlier this week. Australia won the series 4-1. The championship match was won by the away team by a score of 54 runs against the home team.
After an exciting Super Over at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, India emerged victorious in the second game of the series.
Once again, Australia demonstrated why they are the team to beat and why they are considered to be the greatest in the world when it comes to women’s soccer. Despite the massive amount of backing the host team received from the crowd, the Australians played courageous cricket and won the series.
After the last episode of the series, the guests paid gratitude to the “unique tour to India” that they had experienced.
Cricket Australia published a video to Twitter in which they offered some behind-the-scenes footage from their tour of India.
“You don’t have the chance to represent Australia in cricket matches in India very often. The sights and sounds captured on a unique journey through India, “the caption for the film said.
Jessica Jonassen, a multi-talented athlete, republished the video with the following commentary: “I really wish I could have spent more than 5 days in this gorgeous country! Will hopefully be back in a timely manner.”
Player of the Series honours go to all-rounder Ashleigh Gardner, who was able to score 115 runs in just three innings while maintaining an average of 57.50. In addition, she had taken seven wickets during the course of the tour.
Alyssa Healy, who normally serves as wicketkeeper and batsman for the squad, took over as captain when Meg Lanning was unable to do so.
Lanning, who had been absent from the sport for an undetermined period of time, is scheduled to make his comeback during the forthcoming one-day international series against Pakistan.
Due to a calf injury, Healy will not be able to play for Australia against Pakistan in any of the three One-Day Internationals that start on January 16 in Brisbane and Sydney.
