Previous match summary: India beat Australia by 17 runs
India will consider itself lucky to walk away with a win, after finding itself on the back foot more than once in this game. However, it takes more than luck to trump a champion side like Australia. Deepti Sharma 46-ball 49 and a spectacular 4/19 from Poonam Yadav swung things in India’s favour despite some goof work from Lanning & Co. Safe to say that this upset spices things up right at the start in this tournament. India walks away with a shot in the arm with this 17-run win over defending champion, Australia.
