The second ODI between Australia Women (AU-W) and India Women (IN-W) is set to take place at Harrup Park in Mackay on Friday.
The Australians showed why they are the team to beat on the women's circuit with an imperative performance in the previous ODI. They will be looking to sustain their winning run in the 50-over format at the expense of India, who showed signs of promise with both the bat and ball in the first game. With the likes of Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana looking to make amends, the Aussies should be in for a tough time in this fixture.
