full and straight, clipped into midwicket and makes it back for the second. An extraordinary victory for Australia to keep the streak alive.
Cricket, bloody hell! Australia win by five wickets in what has been an epic game of cricket. A few moments again India were convinced they had won that game. But what should have been the last ball was called a no-ball for height, a massive call from the third umpire. Where to start with the rest of that game? Beth Mooney has played one of the great innings. Tahlia McGrath also played a vital hand, as did Nicola Carey at the end.
Beth Mooney "I was pretty disappointed that I left 13 for the last over but credit to Nic it was a great partnership at the end and thought we had really great plans. We were guessing what they were going to bowl, you just got to run hard and was lucky I had a bit left in the tank. I like batting there [opening] but Rach and Midge do a great job there."
Mithali Raj "It was a great game played by both the teams, was thinking it was around 550 runs today. The batting department has done really well. [The no-ball] For me it was quite a nervous last ball because anything could have happened, we didn't expect a no-ball but it's part of the game and we were all on the edge of our seat. We will continue to put up the show we did today.
Meg Lanning "It was pretty stressful watching, but looked like Moons and Nic had it under control to be honest. We lost those early wickets which wasn't ideal but there was some early movement and thought India bowled extremely well. The way the game finished was quite incredible. We feel like we have that depth in our batting and bowling and we've seen that in the first two games. Moons going up to opening with Rach out showed our versatility and nice to scrape our way to victory. Both sides had their moments then that last over had it all."
Phew, blimey, what a finish. A magnificent day of cricket with a touch of controversy thrown in at the end.
Deepak: "No Ball? Ball was dying on the batter, it was a terrible call from the 3rd umpire. Not to forget, Indians let it slip with some average bowling, bad fielding and ordinary captaincy from Raj"
Rajat Raj: "India's fielding leaves a lot to be desired. There were at least 5 misfields in last 10 overs. So many risk twos by Aus"
Right, on that note I'll wrap things up for tonight. I need a lie down. We'll be back on Sunday for the final game of the ODI leg of this series. Until then, it's goodbye from Gnasher and Saurabh.
Free hit Did the batters make the run? Umpires confirming how many needed to win. Two runs to win. Can only be run out.
full toss, caught at midwicket! But they are going to check for the height. What drama. India are celebrating. It's VERY close. What will the third umpire decide? It could easily be called no-ball this. There's some rocking and rolling here. They are still looking at this. Crazy end to the game. IT'S A NO-BALL!!!
3 to win, 2 for the Super Over. Mooney has faced one ball in this over
full outside off, dragged down towards long-on, they get back for the second! Oh boy
5 off 2 balls. 4 for a Super Over
moves right across outside off, tries to scoop but it's only single towards short fine leg
6 off 3 balls
they steal a bye! Was very well bowled, full outside leg, Carey didn't connect but Mooney was alert
Goswami apologised straight away. That slipped out with the damp ball. Carey gets the concussion check and a new helmet. Free hit coming up
oh dear! That's a beamer which has clattered straight into Carey's helmet. Of course it's a no-ball. Main thing is Carey okay? Seems like but that was a horrendous blow
8 off 4 balls. Probably still need a boundary
full outside leg stump, heaved into the leg side and there's another misfield which allows the second
full toss, swung off the pads through midwicket and Mooney makes it back for the second...AND THERE'S AN OVERTHROW. But it means Mooney is off strike
Australia need 13 off the last over. 12 for a Super Over! What a game this has been. Long discussion between India's think tank. Who will bowl? It's Goswami. Plenty of time being taken to set the field
full at the pads, swings and finds short fine leg...could easily have gone to the rope
did this reach deep midwicket?! Mooney skipped down the pitch, flicked it strongly, Rodrigues comes in off the rope, doesn't quite get there
drives along the ground to long-off
over the wicket, goes right across outside off and swings to leg, gets a massive top edge back over the keeper. Loses the strike
finds the cover boundary! What a stroke. Gave herself a touch of room outside leg and drove through the covers
right across the stumps, goes for the sweep, ends up at short fine leg...there was an appeal for lbw. Very close! Looked out
Marcus: "Carey has done a good job but I think having two left handers in at the same time has helped India with their bowling and fielding strategies, they have been so disciplined."
Mooney on her haunches trying to take in some big breathes. She has been on the field for every ball of the game
does it reach the rope, yes it does! Short on the pads, swung wide of short fine leg and deep square can't cut it off
goes for the slog sweep, inside edge into the boot...it's a dot
did that carry to cover? Driven very firmly, think it was a chance, they make it back for the second
conventional sweep from Mooney, backward of square, gets near the rope but not far enough for Australia
reverse hits again, but was wide outside leg stump and couldn't get any power
uses her feet and drives down to long-off...can't find the rope
Australia need a big over
