AUAW Vs INAW Dream11 Team And Match Report: India look to reignite their wayward sorties come the T20 series after being putdown in the one-day series.
This was always going to be a closely contested series and the narrative was paid a testament to in the manner both these sides went at loggerheads in the bygone three match one-day series. At the end of the day, Australia A were way too inferior to India A with their more well rounded setup and better understanding of the prevalent conditions seeing the home side emerge 2-1 winners.
They were thumped to a defeat in the first match of the series but the fighting spirit Australia showcased from that match onwards eulogised just how strong the side is in the cricketing fraternity. The astounding depth prevelant in the women’s setup in the cricketing fraternity was there for all to see with the players in the Australia A side doling out a pinch perfect brand of cricket to win two matches on the bounce.
Needing 177 to win the culminating encounter and with it the series as well, Australia managed to show composure to hang onto a three wicket win, one which rounded up the perfect comeback for the side. And come the three match T20 series starting today, the side will be looking to emulate the same rousing displays which made their players so successful in the Women’s Big Bash League, showings which hold the side in sublime stead ahead of the series.
Elsewhere for the Indian contingent, this series is of pivotal importance for names who are trying to catch the selectors and team management’s eyes before next year’s world cup. With spots still up for grabs in India’s side for the showpiece tournamnet, the India A squad will be looking to provide food for thought back home with tenacity filled performances to make this a topsy-turvy and tantalising series.
