Australia got off to a good start, with Healy and Mooney putting in 52 runs for the first wicket. India, on the other hand, did not allow Australia to get away with the game, keeping the run rate in check. It looked as if India would be able to restrict Australia to around 160 runs, but Ashleigh Gardner’s great tackle of 31 from 18 balls propelled the Lanning-led team to 172-4.

India then got off to the worst possible start, scoring just 15 runs among their top three batsmen, leaving the team in trouble at 21-3. However, an impressive counter-attack from Jemimah Rodrigues (43 of 24) and Harmanpreet Kaur (52 of 34) gave India a decisive lead.

“They had probably all written us off”: Ashleigh Gardner

Ashleigh Gardner noted after the match that the win was “pretty high” on Australia’s list of unrivaled hits.

“I think at the 10+ innings mark for India, probably everyone had written us off, but I think that just shows our character within our team and that’s why the best teams win in those kinds of positions. “. Ashleigh Gardner said.

“What we talk about is when our backs are against the wall, we always try to find a way, and today we probably had no right to win at some point there. They were cruising and then we found a way to get some wickets and eventually we came out on top.” added Ashleigh Gardner.

The defending champions had just beaten India by five runs in a thrilling semi-final match.
