The Indian batsmen put in a good effort and set Australia a target of 173 runs in 20 overs, but this too proved to be a modest one for the T20 world champions.

Indian cricket teams are not having a good time on the field at the moment. On the one hand, the Indian men’s team, captained by Rohit Sharma in Bangladesh, has lost two consecutive matches in the ODI series. While the captaincy of Harmanpreet Kaur Indian women’s team Has had to go through a bad start in the five-match T20 series. In the first match against Australia, India got a crushing defeat by 9 wickets due to poor fielding, average bowling and Beth Mooney’s blistering innings. With this, Australia took a 1-0 lead in the series.
In the first match of the series on Friday, December 9 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, Team India performed strongly with the bat and scored a good score of 172 runs in front of Australia’s strong bowling. Despite this, the Australian batsmen proved this score too modest. The opening pair of Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney, captaining the series, created a storm in the beginning, after which Tahlia McGrath also finished the match in style.
