On 7 August 2022, the stage was set for India Women’s Team to win a gold medal in the Commonwealth Games 2022. India took on Australia at Edgbaston with a motive to win a medal in the first-ever women’s T20 tournament in Commonwealth Games. Speaking about the match, Australia won the toss and opted to bat first.

However, Indian bowlers were looking for some early strikes as Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney came out to open for Australia. Skipper Meg Lanning also scored 36 runs off 26 balls. Even, Gardner continued her impressive form as she scored 25 runs off 15 balls. Beth Mooney was the highest scorer with her 61-run knock. She hit eight boundaries during her whole innings. However, Australia put up a total of 161 runs by losing eight wickets in 20 overs. India’s Renuka Singh was impressive once again. She picked up two wickets by conceding 25 runs in four overs.

In reply, high hopes were there for both the Indian openers. But, Smriti Mandhana and Shefali Verma failed to score big as they lost their wickets quickly. Then, skipper Harmanpreet Kaur played a captain’s knock by scoring 65 runs off 43 balls. She hit seven boundaries along with two sixes. India was on the track while chasing the target of 162 runs. Harmanpreet and Jemimah Rodrigues stitched up a partnership of 96 runs. But, then, India faced a batting collapse as they got bundled out for 152 runs in 19.3 overs. India lost the match by nine runs and settled for a silver medal in the Commonwealth Games 2022.

Now, after the match, former India captain Mohammed Azharuddin came up with a tweet to criticize India women’s batting. He shared a post with a captain: “Rubbish batting by the Indian team. No common sense. Gave away a winning game on a platter. #INDvsAUS #WomensCricket #CWG22”. Meanwhile, fans did not like that as they came out to support Team India by raising their voice against the former India captain.
