With India requiring 44 off 30 with seven wickets in hand to win the CWG finale, Ashleigh Gardner staged an incredible turnaround by dismissing Pooja Vastrakar and the well-set Harmanpreet Kaur off successive deliveries. Given a sniff, Australia stormed back into the contest by strangling the lower middle order to win by nine runs as India lost their last eight wickets for just 34 runs. A dejected Harmanpreet, whose 43-ball 65 had thrust India into a match-winning position, cut a sorry figure in the dugout as India settled for the silver medal.
At one stage India were 2/118, needing 44 from 34 to win gold.
