Australia lost to India in their third One Day International on Sunday, the home side’s first defeat since 2017. The winning streak lasted 26 games, and could have continued even further such was the competitiveness of the contest. Having put on 264/9, the hosts were to force India to chase down their highest ever total in ODIs, and the visitors did so with three deliveries and two wickets to spare, Jhulan Goswami hitting a boundary down the ground to spark ecstatic scenes.
Amongst all the mental scars, Sophie Molineux will be sporting some rather more visible ones after she was struck above the mouth by an incoming ball. She was let back on to the field with some significant, unusual-looking repairs having been carried out on her upper lip.
