Team India will be anxious to build on their success after winning the U19 World Cup earlier this year, but playing Australia will be, to put it mildly, a very challenging job. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led squad has won three of its first four games, but there are still a lot of issues that need to be resolved. Australia, the defending champions, have been at their very best, winning every game they played in the group round. On February 23 in Newlands in Cape Town, they will try to defeat India in order to advance to yet another final.
As the squad returns to India, they would feel relieved after seeing Smriti Mandhana’s performance. 26-year-old man crashed intoIn the previous game against Ireland, 87 off 56 deliveries were made, but the game versus Australia will be quite different. There will also be psychological pressure because of India’s track record against the Meg Lanning-led team. Moreover, captain Harmanpreet Kaur is also performing well. India must therefore use extreme caution in their impending matchup with the powerful Australians.
Australia will now be lot more composed when it comes to the five-time champions since players like Ashleigh Gardner, Megan Schutt, and Georgia Wareham are now in outstanding form. Tahlia McGrath also performed admirably in the most recent game and can pose a threat to India. Although the Indian bowlers have been effective thus far, Australia will undoubtedly test their abilities.IND-W vs. AUS-W Draft Report
