Gold Coast. The Indian women’s team was defeated by Australia by 4 wickets in the second T20 International cricket match of the series on Saturday. Indian T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur wants her players to play more responsibly as the team looks to dominate the limited overs format. Batting first, in this match played in Queensland, India scored 118 runs for 9 wickets. Australia achieved this target with 5 balls to spare.

Harmanpreet said after the match, ‘We scored 20 runs short. The wicket was not that easy to bat on. Had we had 20 more runs, the result could have been in our favour. It was a good match. We didn’t give them runs easily and tried till the end but would like the team to play more responsibly. If Pooja Vastrakar had not scored 37 runs in 26 balls, then the Indian team’s score would not have reached 118 runs.

Harmanpreet said, ‘Pooja has talent and whenever we need it, she gets us runs and wickets. That’s what we expect from them. We know Australia is a good team. You always need to play against them with a good strategy. Tahlia McGrath scored an unbeaten 42 runs for Australia to win the team.

Australian captain Meg Lanning said, ‘We bowled better. I think it was our best bowling performance in this series. McGrath helped him win with a brilliant performance. The ball was swinging well on the pitch but that makes the role of the bowlers important and makes the match exciting.

McGrath, who was adjudged player of the match, maintained his composure under pressure. He said after the match that the conditions were a bit complicated. He said, ‘It’s a good feeling. The bowlers made things easy for us first. The ball was coming to a standstill, it was getting difficult to play but in the end we won.
