On Tuesday, needing nine off six balls, Indian women were staring at defeat when they lost Poonam Yadav (7) in the first delivery, but Harmanpreet plundered Letsoalo over deep midwicket to bring India back on the chase and sealed the win with a couple of runs in the last ball of the over.

In the women's list, Jhulan Goswami, who did not play the Qualifiers due to injury, is placed 3rd in the bowler's list behind Marizanne Kapp of South Africa and Stefanie Taylor of West Indies. Left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht is eighth in the list.
Jhulan is also seventh in the list of all-rounders while Shikha Pandey and Deepti Sharma are 19th and 20th in the list.

Australia Women Vs India Women, 2nd ODI Live Cricket Score Updates: What a game of cricket this turned out to be! Goswami did well to not concede any boundaries but India’s poor fielding, combined with the no-ball called for height in the last delivery meant the game slipped out of the visiting team’s grasp yet again. Australia, meanwhile, continue their winning run in ODIs, this being their 26th consecutive victory in the 50-over format, and this perhaps would be their toughest victory in their recent run of matches yet.
