In the women’s cricket competition at the Commonwealth Games 2022, the gold medal match resulted in Australia being recognized as the champions and India having to settle for the silver medal. Australia won the match. During the dramatic summit match against the formidable Australia, the team lead by Harmanpreet Kaur was forced to face a defeat by nine runs while chasing 162. Deepti Sharma’s magnificent one-handed catch, which led to the dismissal of Australia batter Beth Mooney, is a moment that Team India’s supporters will remember fondly despite the fact that their team did not win the match.
Mooney was in blazing form during the decisive match that took place on Sunday at Edgbaston. She reached her half-century in just 36 balls, which gave Australia the upper hand in the competition. Mooney was finally run out on Sneh Rana’s delivery in the 18th over, when Deepti Sharma made an exceptional attempt and took a one-handed catch to do so. This resulted in the dismissal of Mooney. After scoring 61 runs off 41 balls, the batter was removed from the game.
The spectacular catch made by the all-rounder captivated everyone, and it left the spectators in a state of awe. The catch is currently getting a lot of attention on social media, and it has quickly become popular.
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.
The India team was led by Harmanpreet, who had the highest score with 65 runs.
After claiming victory over England earlier on Sunday, New Zealand was awarded the bronze medal in the women’s cricket competition.
