After the second T20I match at Navi Mumbai finished in a draw, Squad India wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh had a night to remember when Harmanpreet Kaur’s team defeated Australia women’s cricket team via a “Super Over.”
After opener Smriti Mandhana’s outstanding 79 off 49 balls at the top to chase down 188 to win, Richa first hammered 26 off 13 balls with three sixes to help the Indian side draw the game. Ghosh hit a six to start the Indian women’s cricket team off in the Super Over, and they went on to score 20 runs in the over, which was more than enough for Alyssa Healy’s team to win.
Richa has always had my support. She first struggled, but I was always following closely behind her. I want to express my gratitude to our staff and selectors for supporting her even when she wasn’t scoring runs. Richa Ghosh demonstrated her power-hitting today, which we have also seen in domestic play, according to skipper Harmanpreet Kaur.
After the team’s exciting Super Over victory over Australia, India’s standout opener Smriti Mandhana emphasized the significance of creating tough totals for opponents and stated the squad has to improve on it. India overcame Australia by four runs in the Super Over after a thrilling game that saw the Women in Blue edge the Aussies in the second T20I to tie the five-match series at one game each.
Smriti noted that the pitch utilised in the game was excellent for batting on and that her teammates like chasing down goals. “I think the Indian team as a whole enjoys pursuing. However, we also need to focus on totals. I realised it was a fantastic surface while they were batting, and I had massive scores in mind,” Mandhana said following the match.
She expressed her joy over women’s cricket receiving such a spectacular pitch and claimed that this was the most exciting game in which the squad had ever played. I was careful not to make the same mistake as in the previous innings. You’ll obtain big scores and high run chases if you play on such wickets that have been created for women’s cricket.
This is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting games in which we have ever participated, Mandhana said. Renuka Singh, a pacer, maintained her composure to stop 20 runs, helping India win the game. India reached 20/1 in the Super Over thanks to Smriti Mandhana’s barrage of strokes. India batted beautifully to tie Australia’s target and force the Super Over.
this Right away, they were on the money. Mandhana led the way for India with a scorching 79 off only 49 balls, while Richa Ghosh’s late flourish ensured that India didn’t lose.
