In the second Twenty20 International (T20I) of the five-match series that was held in Mumbai, the women’s cricket teams from India and Australia put on a show for the audience of over 40,000 spectators.
Due to the fact that both teams scored 187 runs during the match, the game was forced into a super over because of the extremely close score.
Smriti Mandhana was a major contributor to India’s tally of 20 runs in the one-over eliminator, while Renuka Singh Thakur did a good job with the ball to prevent the Australians from reaching the target of 21 runs that they were pursuing.
Fans, past cricketers, and pundits went to Twitter to praise the cricketing match that took place at the DY Patil Sports Academy in honour of India’s dramatic victory and the enthusiastic support of the spectators there. This praise caused the internet to crash.
Even Smriti Mandhana, who was awarded the title of Player of the Match for her outstanding performance with the bat, acknowledged that it was one of the most impressive matches in which she has taken part.
“When they were batting, I realised it was a wonderful pitch, and I had my sights set on a huge score. Chasing is something that I think every member of the Indian team enjoys doing, but we also need to focus on scoring totals.
Didn’t want to repeat the same error as the previous innings. I’m happy to see such wickets created for the women’s game of cricket; it ensures that there will be high scores and high run chases.
I believe that this is one of the most fun games that any of us have ever participated in, “After the game, she made the statement.
India needed 14 runs off of the final over that was bowled by Megan Schutt, and Devika Vaidya was able to find two fours, which allowed India to reach 187 for 5 and tie the game, which forced the game to go into a Super Over.
After Richa Ghosh hit the first ball for a maximum, the home team was able to score 20 runs in the extra over that was bowled by Heather Graham thanks to a six and a four from Mandhana. Richa Ghosh hit the first ball for a maximum.
After removing Alyssa Healy, Renuka Thakur was successful in defending that total despite the intense pressure that was placed on her. As a result, Australia suffered their first loss of the year.
