A couple of entertaining knockout games have led us to an Australia vs India final. Before that, there is a 3rd place playoff for the bronze medal between England and New Zealand. See you then.

momo: “As usual Healy leaves her special innings for the finals. Goodluck Team India”

Tautoru: “Won it in the last over. Close. Those dropped catches…”

Daz: “This Australian team reminds me of the Brazilian national soccer team of the late 90s”

8:58 pm: Smiles and high-fives in the Australian dugout. They make it to another final. New Zealand were in this, but dropping as many as five chances meant they could not get past the T20 world champions. Australia offered chances but the pros capitalized in between. Healy and Lanning were dismissed early. Mooney and McGrath had a 56-run stand which steadied the innings. There were drop chances in them. But what mattered more was that the duo kept up with the rate. When they were dismissed, Haynes and Gardner continued to move the innings forward. In the end, Australia won with three balls to spare. But spare a thought for Lea Tahuhu, who wasn’t initially in the squad, but had enviable accuracy. She picked three but could have had six on another day. Kerr was decent but had a missed stumping chance, the skipper tried to dry the runs at the end but the equation was too far in Australia’s favor.

Devine to Gardner, 1 run, Full outside off, driven aerially between the bowler and short mid-on. It goes to mid-on, they complete the single.
