India vs Australia, Highlights ICC Women's World T20: India Outclass Australia By 48 Runs To Top Group B
Riding on a blistering 83-run knock from Smriti Mandhana, India registered a 48-run win against Australia in their final group encounter of the Women's World T20.
Indian women's team registered their fourth consecutive win of the ICC Women's World T20 as they defeated Australia by 48 runs in their final group match at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Saturday. With four wins in as many matches, India finished top of Group B as they outplayed one of the top contenders of the tournament. Australian batters looked clueless against the Indian spinners as they were reduced to 119/9 in 19.4 overs with Alyssa Healy not coming out to bat after suffering a concussion. Chasing a target of 168, Australia got off to a poor start losing both their openers in quick succession. Off-spinner Deepti Sharma, in the fifth over of the match, dismissed openers Elyse Villani and Beth Mooney off consecutive deliveries, putting the Australian team under pressure. Ashleigh Gardner tried to steady the Australian run-chase but Poonam Yadav dismissed her for 20. Post the departure of Gardner, Ellyse Perry tried to bring Australia in the match with some lusty blows but lacked support from the other end. The Indian spinners kept picking up wickets at regular intervals, not allowing Australia get ahead in the run-chase. Anuja Patil was the most successful bowler for India as she picked up three wickets for 15 in 3.4 overs. Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav bagged two wickets each.

19:56 IST: Both the teams are here at the Providence stadium.
19:45 IST: Australia women have a terrific record against India in the T20s. Out of 14 matches played between the two teams, Australia have won 11 matches while India have been able to register only three victories.
18:55 IST: Here's what players from both the teams have to say ahead of the clash.
18:45 IST: Hello and welcome to the live updates of the final Group B encounter of the ICC Women's World T20 between India and Australia.
Ahead of the start of the match top-order batsman Smriti Mandhana asserted that the team is looking to continue with their dominant run. Although, the match being a dead rubber - both teams have qualified for the semis - Mandhana said that the mindset of the players has been to win every single match.
"That's what our mindset will be, and to go all out. Before coming into the World T20, Ramesh Powar (coach) had told us that you have to dominate each and every match, so that is the only mindset which we had the last three matches, and I don't think it will change in the next match," icc-cricket.com quoted Mandhana as saying. Australia, on the other hand are also unbeaten in the tournament so far. After defeating Pakistan in their first match by 52 runs, the Meg Lanning-led side registered a thumping nine-wicket win against Ireland. In the third match of the group stage, Australia defeated neighbouring New Zealand by 33 runs to remain unbeaten in the tournament.
Batting trio of Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur and Mithali Raj will once again be in focus and will look to score most of the runs against a tidy Australian bowling line-up. In the bowling department, the team will bank on spin duo of Dayalan Hemalatha and Poonam Yadav (India's top wicket takers) to restrict the Australian batting order. For Australia, Alyssa Healy, who is currently the top scorer in the tournament with 156 runs, will look to make yet another impression and help the team continue their winning streak ahead of the knockout stages.
India - Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Jemimah Rodrigues, Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Anuja Patil, Ekta Bisht, Dayalan Hemalatha, Mansi Joshi, Pooja Vastrakar, Arundhati Reddy.
Australia - Meg Lanning (capt), Rachael Haynes, Nicole Bolton, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Delissa Kimmince, Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Elyse Villani, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham, Nicola Carey.
