Australia, having found themselves 52/4 after the wicket of Ashleigh Gardner, looked almost certain to see their 25-match winning streak brought to an end by India in the second One Day International on Friday. The record goes back to 2017, and will be a great source of pride for the Aussie team. That pride seemed to shine through as Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath rallied, putting on 126 for the sixth wicket before McGrath was undone by the bowling of Deepti Sharma, a key wicket for the visitors to put themselves back in the driver's seat, the hosts 178/5 off 38.3 overs, chasing 275.
