The International Cricket Council (ICC) extended its congratulations to Australia on Monday for taking home the first-ever women’s cricket gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. Australia prevailed over India in a nail-biting final match at Birmingham 2022. The victory extends Australia’s reign as the preeminent nation in the women’s game. In an extremely close match, Australia prevailed over India by a score of nine runs. Australia bowled India out for 152 with three deliveries left in their innings, after India had the potential to pull off a remarkable run chase.
The Chief Executive of the ICC, Geoff Allardice, issued the following statement in an official press release: “Congratulations to Australia on winning the first ever gold medal for women’s cricket at the Commonwealth Games.” The past ten days of competition at Edgbaston have been fantastic, with packed out fans cheering on the world’s best players. Every match has had the atmosphere of a home match due to the large number of spectators from all eight competing nations who came out to enjoy high-level cricket and some intensely contested matches, including the championship match, which was a great advertisement for the women’s game.
He continued by saying, “I’d like to thank the Commonwealth Games Federation and Birmingham 2022 for giving cricket the opportunity to be part of a multi-sport Games. Both the players and the match officials have truly enjoyed the experience.”
Mooney’s knock of 61 runs helped Australia get to a score of 161/8 after Australia’s captain, Meg Lanning, made the decision to bat first. Both Renuka Singh and Sneh Rana brought back two wickets for India in their respective returns.
With Harmanpreet Kaur & Jemimah Rodrigues performing so well, India were in a position to take the lead in their pursuit of 162. The team’s score went from 118/2 to 152 all out, and as a result, Australia was able to pull off the victory.
