18:34 (IST)29 JUL 2022


The game doesn't even go into the final over. They win the game in the 19th against the run of play given that they were 49/5 at one stage. This is what batting depth gives you, I guess. 

Australia 157/7 in 19 overs [Ash Gardner 52*(35), Grace Harris 37(20), Renuka Thakur 4-18] beat India 154/8 in 20 overs [Harmanpreet Kaur 52(34), Shafali Verma 48(33), Jess Jonassen 4-22] by 3 wickets.

18:30 (IST)29 JUL 2022


Fifty for Gardner, and the Aussies are one shot away from victory.

18:28 (IST)29 JUL 2022


Indian fans may want to look away the way this is going. It feels like only minutes ago that the target looked like it was a little too far for the Aussies to chase. Yet, here we are. 9 to win off 12 balls. They've scored 27 runs in the last two overs.

18:25 (IST)29 JUL 2022


Alana King, of all people, doing the damage in that over. 15 comes off it. The Aussies need 21 to win off 18 balls. Only 3 wickets in hand but they will back themselves for as long as Gardner is around. 

18:24 (IST)29 JUL 2022

The required rate is now up to 9 an over for Australia. 36 need in 24 balls. You can find all the ball-by-ball commentary here, of course.

18:17 (IST)29 JUL 2022


The Aussies find themselves at 112/7 in 15 overs. The collapse of wickets starting to take effect now. They need 43 in 30 balls from here.

18:15 (IST)29 JUL 2022


STUNNER! Deepti takes a brilliant catch off her own bowling to send Jonassen packing. 110/7 and the Aussies are reeling again, but they still have Gardner around. And the game isn't over till it's over. 45 to win in 34 balls.

18:08 (IST)29 JUL 2022


Looking more and more like Australia's game now. Gardner joining the party as well. These two dominating any bowler that Harmanpreet Kaur is turning to, at the moment. Just as I was typing that, Harris skies one from Meghna Singh, only to find a backpedaling Harmanpreet in the deep mid-off region. 100/6 in 13 overs. The Aussies need 55 runs in 42 balls. 

18:03 (IST)29 JUL 2022


The Aussies probably said Grace 'cause she is responding, and how! Harris is taking the momentum away from the Indians and dragging her team back into this game. The Aussies are 91/5 in 12 overs. They need 64 to win in 48 balls.
