Women's T20 World Cup: Poonam Yadav Spins India To 17-Run Win Over Defending Champs Australia

Indian women's team opened their T20 World Cup campaign with a 17-run win over reigning T20 champions Australia. 

Chasing a target of 133 to win, Australia started off briskly with Alyssa Healy scoring the bulk of runs as she carved Indian bowlers all around the pitch. But Australia lost the wicket of Beth Mooney and captain Meg Lanning, reducing them to 57 for 2.


After Healy scored a half-century, she too perished as spinner Poonam Yadav spun a web around Australian batmen to leave them in tatters. In her four over spell, Yadav conceded just 19 runs and claimed four wickets.

Her spell started the downfall of the Aussies and India put on the screws to beat the defending champions by 17 runs.


Earlier India had scored 132, thanks largely to a well-paced unbeaten 49 from Deepti Sharma. 

It was an all-round effort from the Indian team and the victory will lift the spirits of the side even more. India are chasing an elusive World Cup title and beating the champions in the opening game is a great start. 


India will now take on Bangladesh in the next game on Monday.
