Once again, the Indian women’s cricket team had to settle for second. Despite going close to winning, they had to lose from the winning situation. Harmanpreet’s team lost by only 9 runs against Australia. Captain Harmanpreet herself played a fast inning of 65 runs. Jemima Rodriguez also scored 33 runs. But the lack of an experienced batter suffered in the end. The match was under their control for a while but they lost wickets one after another towards the end. Since then the team’s batting has come under criticism.
India lost only two matches in Birmingham Games and both against Australia. It should be noted that both the matches seemed to be won by India at one time. But a few blunders in the match doomed India’s gold hopes. Even India was ahead in total runs of the tournaments as well as total run rates and total boundaries too.
