Australia Women Vs India Women, 3rd ODI Live Cricket Score Updates: FOUR! India win, they beat Australia by 2 wickets in 3rd ODI and break Australia's 26-match winning streak. Jhulan Goswami gives a charge to Molinuex and hits it straight down the ground for a boundary to seal the game for her side. She punches the air in jubilation and why not! In last match, she could not deliver under pressure with the ball in hand but in 3rd game, she has done it with the bat. India get the all-important 2 points before heading to the Test match at Gold Coast. What a game we have had. These two ODIs will be remembered for a long time.
Preview: After narrowly escaping from the jaws of defeat on Friday, Australia will hope to produce another clinical display in all departments when they take on India in the third and final one-day international at the Great Barrier Reef Arena in Mackay on Sunday.
Opener Beth Mooney led from the front with a brilliant unbeaten 125 and was ably assisted by the likes of Tahlia McGrath (74) and Nicola Carey (39*) as the hosts recovered from a shaky start, getting reduced to 52/4 after being set 275 to win, to seal victory in the very last delivery of the game.

India had earlier produced a batting display that was a major improvement from the first ODI, as Smriti Mandhana's 86 and Richa Ghosh's 44 along with a late impetus from the likes of Jhulan Goswami and Pooja Vastrakar helped them finish on 274/7.
The victory stretched Australia's winning run in the 50-over format to a staggering 26. Meg Lanning's side have not lost in the format since October 2017 against England. They'll hope to make it 27 in the clash against the Indians on Sunday before the tour moves to the city of Gold Coast where the one-off pink-ball Test as well as the three T20Is will be hosted at the Carrara Oval.
