IND-W vs AUS-W LIVE – Mithali Raj 20000 Runs: Chasing a 25th straight ODI victory, Australia are without the world’s top two ranked ODI bowlers in Jess Jonassen and Megan Schutt, which has offered a rare opportunity for the likes of Darlington as well as pace-bowling allrounder Tahlia McGrath, who played the last of her five ODIs in this record-breaking side last October.
India, meanwhile, has fielded three debutantes in Meghna Singh, Yastika Bhatia and 17-year-old wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh, while Harmanpreet Kaur (thumb injury) and Jemimah Rodrigues have been omitted.
Yastika was particularly impressive in Saturday’s practice match against the Australians in Brisbane, the left-hander stroking a stylish 41 as wickets fell around her.
Today’s match is the first of three ODIs as part of a multi-format series, with a one-off Test and three T20Is to follow.
Australia XI: Alyssa Healy (wk), Rachael Haynes, Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Tahlia McGrath, Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham, Hannah Darlington, Darcie Brown
India XI: Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Yastika Bhatia, Mithali Raj (c), Deepti Sharma, Richa Ghosh, Pooja Vastrakar, Sneh Rana, Jhulan Goswami, Meghna Singh, Poonam Yadav
