India settled with a silver medal in the CWG 2022 after losing to Australia in the final by nine runs at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Tuesday. In the hunt for 161 to win, India fell agonizing short despite skipper Harmanpreet Kaur’s fiery 43-ball off 65 and Jemimah Rodrigues’ run-a-ball 33. India had lost to Australia in the group stage while the Aussies came into the final having tasted only success. India were in a decent position in the chase and looked on course for the win, but a collapse changed the momentum of the game and Australia stormed back to prevail in the thriller.
A quick start for Shafali Verma, but Darcie Brown has bowled Smriti Mandhana early!
