And it shows the straight victory of Indian cricket team.
During the first innings, Smriti Mandhana was playing on 31 runs and Ashleigh Garnder dismissed Smriti Mandhana on a brilliant catch. Yastika Bhatia was sent at number three and she could play only 12 balls. After this Shifali and Poonam Rawat came to play.

Meg Lanning declared her team’s innings even before her dismissal. Deepti Sharma dismissed Gardner, and debutant Meghna Singh troubled the Australian batsman too much with her outswinger.
There are almost 70 overs left in the game but due to rain in the first two days, a lot of time of the match has been wasted, and right now the match seems to be going in the condition of a draw.
Meghna took her first wicket with a brilliant outswinger and dismissed Annabel Sutherland. His second wicket was Sophie Molineux. After this, Pooja dismissed Georgia Wareham and before that, Darcy Brown was dismissed by Deepti Sharma.
The Indian bowlers were seen to be much more successful and better bowlers in front of the Australian bowlers.
