India vs Australia, Women’s World Cup, Live Score Updates: Women’s WC Live: Meg Lanning Hits Fifty As Australia Cruise In Chase vs India | Cricket News

INDW vs AUSW, Women’s World Cup, Live Updates: Australia opener Alyssa Healy scored a remarkable fifty but was soon dismissed by Sneh Rana for 72 runs while Rachael Haynes also departed for 43 runs in their bid to chase 278 runs vs India in the ongoing Women’s World Cup at the Eden Park in Auckland. However, skipper Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry took over the mantle and played cautiously. Earlier, Harmanpreet Kaur and Pooja Vastrakar propelled India’s score to 277/7 after some hard-hitting towards the end of the innings against Australia. Kaur remained unbeaten on 57 while Vastrakar got out on the last ball of the innings as she scored 34 runs off 28 balls. Earlier, India got off to a poor start after being put in to bat first by skipper Meg Lanning. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma both departed with India reeling at 28/2. However, half-centuries from Yastika Bhatia (59) and Mithali Raj (68) helped India recover in the middle-overs and laid down a perfect platform for batter to hit towards the end. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Mithali Raj at the toss: We would have bowled as well – it’s a fresh wicket and the weather might be an issue. One change for us – Shafali Veram replaces Deepti Sharma, we wanted to strengthen our top-order. We’ve done well and wanted to continue in a confident manner.
