One of the funniest games we've ever been a part of: Mandhana

Star batsman Smriti Mandhana, architect of India’s second women’s T20 win over Australia on Sunday, described the match as one of the funnest she has ever played.

After the score was tied at 187, India won the match via a Super Over to tie the five-match series at 1-1.

“It’s great to see such wickets for women’s cricket, you get high runs, high runs. I think it’s one of the funnest games we’ve all been involved in,” Mandhana said in his post-match presentation.

“When they hit I realized it was a fantastic wicket and I set my sights on a big score. Don’t want to make the same mistakes as in the last innings,” said Mandhana, who took 79 for 49 balls And was named the best player of the game.

Everyone on the India team loves chasing goals, but the team “needs to work on setting the totals,” she said.

India captain Harmanpreet Kaur said her players had learned a lot from their last match, which saw the home side lose by nine wickets.

“We support ourselves. If someone can get a little more, then we can even get 200. So that’s the plan today, to support ourselves,” she said.

Of Richa Ghosh taking 26 balls instead of 13, Kaur said: “I’ve always supported her, even when she wasn’t running. Today we saw what we can do with her power.

“Defending is something we need to keep working on, we ran too much today. Bowling was better today because the wicket was too easy to hit, nothing for the bowlers. From today on, the only thing we need What has improved is the defence.” Australia captain Alyssa Healy said: “Missed a bit tonight and they cashed in. With 40,000 people here tonight, what a great advertisement for women’s cricket.

“I think we dropped the ball a little bit and gave them the chase. We held on well and we got to the Super Over and in that chase, India were everywhere. We fought to get to that position, we kept going Fight to the end.
