India Women produced a fine batting display to end Australia Women’s record 26-match unbeaten streak with a two-wicket in the third and final ODI at Harrup Park in Mackay on Sunday. India Women recorded their highest-ever successful run-chase in ODIs by overhauling the 265-run target with 3 balls to spare. Australia, however, win the series 2-1, having won the first two matches of the series. The focus will now shift to the one-off pink ball Test between the two teams that begins at the Carrara Oval in Queensland on September 30.
India will go into that Test full of confidence having ended the longest winning-streak in ODIs (both men’s and women’s).
India lost the second ODI by the narrowest of margins, having dominated for much of the game.
This time, however, there was no denying the Indian women’s team as the batters came to the party, making valuable contributions throughout the innings to stop the Australian juggernaut.
