Big Blow For India As Top Thr

Healy welcomed Yadav with a huge six to reach her half-century. The legspinner was denied a hattrick in the followed over but the two wickets she did manage - Rachael Haynes and Ellyse Perry - were enough to break the back of Australia's chase.

Bhatia made no mistake off yet another Yadav "wrong'un" to remove Jonassen cheaply two overs later and Australia were reeling at 82-6.

Speaking ahead of the tournament, the Indian skipper Harmanpreet recalled the time when India caught the attention of the world during World Cup 2017.

India then lost three wickets for six runs, including skipper Harmanpreet Kaur (2) in freaky fashion as she missed with a wild swipe against Jonassen after haring out of her crease and was then stumped as the ball ricocheted back off Australia wicketkeeper Healy's knee. The match at played Allan Border Field in Brisbane, Australia, saw the Indian team score a low figure of just 107 runs.

Teenager Shafali Verma was the main driving force and the 16-year-old opener smashed five fours, including one sublime cover drive, and a booming six in a 15-ball 29. In the ninth over of the innings, India Women captain Harmanpreet Kaur turned to Poonam Yadav to get a breakthrough.

India were restricted to 132, courtesy Deepti Sharma's steady career-best of 49 not out after Jess Jonassen's opening spell sucked the momentum out of India's early charge.

"We didn't quite execute with the bat unfortunately", said captain Meg Lanning. "It's going to be very big if we win, I was very surprised at all the reaction from 2017".

The top two teams in each of the two groups go through to the semi-finals on March 5, three days before the final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
