India’s Thrilling Super Over Win Against Australia In 2nd Women’s T20I Breaks The Internet

With over 40,000 people in attendance, India and Australia’s women’s cricket teams played out a spectacle in the 2nd T20I of the 5-match series in Mumbai. Th match turned out to be a humdinger, with both the teams scoring 187 runs, hence pushing the match into a Super Over. In the one-over eliminator, Smriti Mandhana powered India to a score of 20 runs while Renuka Singh Thakur did well with the ball to ensure that the Aussies don’t end up chasing the target of 21 runs.

India’s thrilling win, together with the crowd support, broke the internet as fans, former cricketers and pundits took to Twitter to hail the cricketing contest that unfolded at the DY Patil Sports Academy.

Even Smriti Mandhana, named Player of the Match for her superlative show with the bat, said that it was one of the finest matches she has been a part of.

“Chasing I think everyone in the Indian team enjoys. We also need to work on setting totals though. When they were batting, I realised it was an amazing wicket, I had my eyes on a big score. Didn’t want to make the same mistake as the last innings. Happy to see such wickets prepared for women’s cricket, you’ll get high scores, high run chases. I think this is one of the most entertaining games we’ve all been a part of,” she said after the match.

India needed 14 off the last over bowled by Megan Schutt and Devika Vaidya managed to find two fours to reach 187 for 5 and tie the game, forcing the game into the Super Over.

The home team put on 20 runs in the super over bowled by Heather Graham, thanks to a six and four from Mandhana after Richa Ghosh smashed the first ball for a maximum.

Renuka Thakur was able to defend that total under extreme pressure after getting rid of Alyssa Healy, handing Australia their first loss of the year.
