Good Afternoon/Morning! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket blog of the 4th T20I between India Women and Australia Women. For India this is a must win game to assure their survival in the T20I tri-series. Having lost both their games India have some positives to take ahead. The match is scheduled to take place at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
India after losing the opening game against Australia managed to post a good total of 198 against England in their next match, credits Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj. However, it was Danielle Wyatt with Virat Kohli’s bat who smashed 124 with a strike rate almost touching the 200 mark and it for England. India are still to register their first victory in the home series.
The top-order and tail of India’s batting line up are producing runs but the middle still struggling to get the ball off. In the bowling department Jhulan Goswami and Deepti Sharma are helping the team with their wicket taking ability but they need good support from others to win matches.
Australia who lost their last match against England will look to bounce back strongly having defeated India in every encounter this season.
