IND-W vs AUS-W 3rd ODI LIVE: Jhulan Goswami exacts revenge, Mithali Raj and Co. end Australia’s win-streak in record chase – Jhulan Goswami fittingly hit the winning runs as India clinched a record-breaking win over Australian Women on Sunday in Mackay. Chasing 265 to win, India’s chase was built on half-centuries by youngsters Shafali Verma and Yastika Bhatia before a middle-order collapse put their chances in doubt. However, Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana and Jhulan Goswami saw the team over the line in the final over, to clinch India’s first win on the tour and exact revenge om their defeat in the second ODI.

With this defeat, Australia’s unbeaten 26-match run in ODI cricket came to an end. However, the hosts won the three-match ODI series by 2-1. Chasing 265, India got off to a steady start as opening batters Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma put on 59 runs for the opening wicket. However, the stand did not last long as Ashleigh Gardner dismissed Mandhana (22) in the 11th over. Yastika Bhatia next joined Shafali in the middle and the duo did not let the momentum drop for the visitors.

Yastika was the aggressor of the two, while Shafali played the second fiddle. Both batters brought up their respective half-centuries as India was poised well in their chase at 153/1 by the end of the 28th over. A 101-run stand for the second wicket came to an end in the 30th over as Sophie Molineux bowled Shafali (56).

Richa Ghosh (0) and Bhatia (64) fell shortly after and India was reduced to 180/4, still needing 85 runs to win from 96 balls. Mithali Raj (16) and Pooja Vastrakar (3) departed in quick succession, and the hopes of India’s victory rested on Deepti Sharma and Sneh Rana’s shoulders.

Deepti was sent back to the pavilion after playing a knock of 31 runs, but Sneh Rana kept India in the game. However, the right-hander was dismissed in the penultimate over after playing a knock of 30 runs and India needed 4 runs from the final over to register a win. Jhulan Goswami (8*) showed her experience to finally take the visitors over the line.

Earlier in the day, Ashleigh Gardner and Beth Mooney played knocks of 67 and 52 respectively as Australia posted a total of 264/9 against India in the third and final ODI here at the Harrup Park on Sunday. Opting to bat, opening batters Rachael Haynes and Alyssa Healy put on 41 runs for the opening wicket, but this stand was broken in the ninth over as Jhulan Goswami dismissed Haynes (13). Indian bowlers then managed to get on top of Australia as Meg Lanning (0), Healy (35), and Ellyse Perry (26) departed in a matter of few overs and the hosts were reduced to 87/4 in the 25th over.

However, half-centuries from Ashleigh Gardner and Beth Mooney in a 98-run stand along with Tahlia McGrath, scoring a  fighting 47, helping the hosts post a score of more than the 260-run mark. For India, Jhulan and Pooja scalped three wickets each.
