Australia Women vs India Women ICC Women's T20 World Cup match live updates: Shikha Pandey bowls out the final over, and we have an appeal for a caught-behind off the first delivery — which ultimately goes in favour of the hosts as the ball is shown to be landing on grass before settling in the keeper's gloves. Kaur then spreads the field out for Gardner, who then departs off the second ball — getting a thick leading edge that results in an easy catch for the bowler. It's just a formality for the Indians thereafter — a dot and a single off the next two balls, before Strano's run out at the non-striker's end completes a fine 17-run victory for Team India at the start of the seventh edition of the T20 World Cup!
