Fall of wickets in a cluster towards the end resulted in soul crushing defeat for the Women in Blue against Australia in the finale of the CWG 2022.
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur (65) and Jemimah Rodrigues (33) added more than 90 runs for the third-wicket but Jemimah’s dismissal opened the door for the Aussies and they never looked back. The sub-continent team was bowled out for 152 in 19.3 overs while chasing 162.
BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly reacted to team’s defeat in the most important game of the campaign.
“Congratulations to the Indian women’s team for winning silver ..But they will go home disappointed as it was their game tonight,” he wrote.
Earlier, Australia amassed 161/8 with Beth Mooney scoring 61 off 41 balls.
