<p>After a 0-3 drubbing in the ODIs, which was characterized by subpar performance across the board, India Women fired on all cylinders in the first Twenty20 match, crushing Australia for the first time in history by a massive nine-wicket margin. India, who had been criticized for their carelessness in the ODIs, showed incredible athleticism on the field on Friday, and the bowlers under the leadership of rookie Titas Sadhu prevented Australia from getting away at any point during the first half of the first Twenty20 match.</p>
<p>Then, to win them over, Shafali Verma (64 not out) and Smriti Mandhana (54), together for 137 runs, formed India’s greatest opening combination in T20I history against Australia.</p>
<p>Sadhu (4/17), a 19-year-old pacer, had an almost flawless night. He started the powerplay with three wickets, while spinners Deepti Sharma and Shreyanka Patil also took two wickets each to help the youthful pacer.</p>
<p>In order to preserve a lot of runs, the Indian squad also improved their fielding by many notches. Additionally, Harmanpreet Kaur, the captain, caught well, holding onto four opportunities.</p>
<p>On one instance, Titas even performed well to steal her fourth wicket after Ashleigh Gardner made a follow-through return catch.</p>
<p>After the game, Titas informed the reporters, “There are hours of hard work that are for any given match behind every match or good performance.”</p>
<p>“I felt like our fielding effort was brilliant because a bowler can’t give her best until and unless she is supported by all the nine players inside the ground.” India, who defeated Australia 2-1 in an away series in 2015–16, is now well-positioned to pursue a first-ever series victory at home after their convincing victory on Friday night at the DY Patil Stadium.</p>
<p>However, given the circumstances, it would be easier said than done. India must remain consistent while also keeping an eye out for Australia’s comeback, which is driven by a desire to commemorate the great Ellyse Perry’s 300th international match.</p>
<p>“I’m genuinely very looking forward to Sunday. Ellyse Perry has been at the forefront of our game and has kind of seen the progression of women’s cricket throughout the globe, so I think it’s a terrific chance for our team to recognize her,” Australia captain Alyssa Healy said.</p>
<p>The prospect of taking part in her 300th show has everyone very thrilled for her. She is unwilling to discuss it. This morning (Friday) over breakfast, I already brought it up. She is unwilling to discuss it. She feels older as a result.” Phoebe Litchfield, Australia’s in-form batsman, scored a noteworthy 49 and again teamed up with Perry to lay the groundwork for a fifth wicket partnership of 79 runs.</p>
<p>However, the visitors need to address the fact that they lost a ton of wickets on each side of the Litchfield-Perry rearguard.</p>
<p>Additionally, the visitors performed poorly on the field by handing up an excessive number of extras. Darcie Brown threw up 14 extras in the first over alone, thus Australia would need to play greater ball control.</p>
<p>India: Amanjot Kaur, Shreyanka Patil, Mannat Kashyap, Saika Ishaque, Renuka Singh Thakur, Titas Sadhu, Pooja Vastrakar, Kanika Ahuja, Minnu Mani, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Deepti Sharma, Yastika Bhatia (wk), Richa Ghosh (wk), Shreyanka Patil, Saika Ishaque, Renuka Singh Thakur, Titas Sadhu, Pooja Vastrakar, Kanika Ahuja, and Minnu Mani.</p>
<p>Australia: Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Phoebe Litchfield, Tahlia McGrath (vc), Beth Mooney (wk), Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Wareham; Darcie Brown, Heather Graham, Ashleigh Gardner, Kim Garth, Grace Harris, Alyssa Healy (c&wk).</p>
