Australia knew they’d nudged ahead in the CWG finale with India’s equation creeping up to 41 off the final four overs. And despite an expesive over from Alana King, the reigning T20 champions further tightened the noose with a spate of run-outs. India lost their final five for just 13 runs while Deepti Sharma’s boundaries just delayed the inevitable as Jes Jonassen held her nerve in the last over.
Brief Scores: Australia 161/8 in 20 overs (Beth Mooney 61, Meg Lannign 36; Renuka Thakur 2-25, Sneh Rana 2-38) beat India 152 all out in 19.3 overs (Harmanpreet Kaur 65, Jemimah Rodrigues 33; Ash Gardner 3-16, Megan Schutt 2-27) by 9 runs
Jess Jonassen takes 4/22 from her four overs 💪
