Cricket News: AUS vs IND T20 WC Twitter reactions: Australia prevail again, India heartbroken | AU-W vs IN-W Twitter reactions

Another major tournament, another final for this great Australia team. For India, it was the latest near miss, falling short when victory looked theirs.

In a game that had eerie similarities to the 2022 Commonwealth Games Final, Australia displayed the usual fight and composure under pressure to further confirm their status as the greatest ever team in the women’s game.

The turning points? Jemimah Rodrigues hit a superb 43 off 24 balls and her dismissal was vital for Australia. But, Harmanpreet Kaur, who was struggling for form previously, was in sublime touch. She took the equation to 41 off 33 needed, but that is when disaster struck. Attempting the second run, the Indian captain’s bat got caught when sliding into the crease and was run out for the first time in five years. India could then only manage 37 off the final five overs to fall short by five runs.

With regards to Australia, they were blessed with contributions right down the lineup yet again. Darcie Brown was outstanding with the ball, while Ellyse Perry’s fielding highlighted the key difference between the teams. Ash Gardner’s all-round heroics won her player of the match, after crucial knocks by Beth Mooney and Meg Lanning.

And, in the end, that final over – and ball – of the Australian innings proved vital.
