India defeated Australia through Super Over in the second women’s T20 International to level five-match series 1-1 on Sunday. The match was decided through Super Over after the scores were tied at 187.
Batted in, Australia posted 187 for 1 with openers Beth Mooney (82 not out) and Tahlia McGregor (70 not out) making 158 runs to complete an unbroken partnership for the second wicket.
In their response, India also ended at 191-5 in just 20 overs. Smriti Mandhana led the way with 79 runs, and Shafali Verma scored 34. Australia won their first T20I with nine wickets in this match on Friday.
Prior to it was the Super Over, 14 were required in the final one bowled by Megan Schutt.
Richa Ghosh (26 not out 13b 3×6) performed a stunning bowl to get the Indian chase back to the track following the demise from opening bowler Smriti Mandhana (79 49b 9×4 4×6). A backward point boundary by Devika Vaidya sent the match into a shootout.
The stunning Smriti seemed to be on track to bring India home but she failed to steer Annabel Sutherland into fine-leg. She kept going.
She scored 76 for the first wicket along with Shafali Verma (34, 23b, 3×4, 4×4 1×6) and 61 with captain Harmanpreet Kaur (21, 22b 2×4 1×6).
Smriti and Richa returned to the middle of an exciting Super Over as the Women in Blue got 20 for one point off Heather Graham. Renuka Singh conceded only 16 points, giving India an incredible win.
Then, it was Beth Mooney (82 not out, 54b, 13×4) and Tahlia McGregor (70 not out 51b 10×4 1×6) who troubled the Indian bowlers.
They had both scored 100 to their score in the opening game, and added 150 for an unbroken second wicket, which is a record-breaking performance in Australia on any wicket. This record was not important at all on the night.
