Cricket News: Twitter reactions: India women beat Australia in thriller | Reactions to India beating Australia in 2nd T20I

The Indian women’s team emerged victorious in a cracker of an encounter in the second T20I against Australia at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday. Chasing a mammoth 188, the Indian side equaled Australia’s score of 187 at the end of the second innings. The game then led to a Super Over and Harmanpreet Kaur’s women managed to edge past the sublime Australian unit by four runs in the one-over contest.

Vice-captain Smriti Mandhana stood out for the home side, notching 79 off 49 deliveries in the chase before smashing 13 in merely three deliveries in the Super Over. She was ably supported by wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh as the 19-year-old smacked three sixes off the 13 deliveries to score 26 runs and provided a much-needed impetus to the Indian chase towards the backend of the innings.

Devika Vaidya played a fine hand with a couple of boundaries in the final over, including one off the last delivery as well to help India tie scores with the visitors.

Twitter reactions: India women beat Australia in cracking T20I

Here are some Twitter reactions on this iconic match, which handed Australia their first defeat in 2022.

Earlier, Australia got to 187 at the loss of only a solitary wicket. Opener Beth Mooney scored an unbeaten 87 off 54 deliveries and Tahlia McGrath scored 70 off 51 to help the Alyssa Healy’s team mount a challenging total after losing the skipper with the score reading 29 in the fourth over.

It is arguable that Australia were a bit short off the ideal target considering that they had nine wickets left at the end of the 20 overs. Renuka Singh held her nerves as she conceded only six in the first four deliveries and hence managed to secure a victory for the home team though Healy scored a six and a boundary off the last two deliveries to hand India a slight scare towards the end.
