Australia survive and win the series! Just! Slower ball on leg, she tries to pull, gets a bottom edge onto pad and it rolls into the off side for the winning run
9.40pm Australia secure the series with a game to play tomorrow night. India will leave frustrated but have a chance to win one last game on Sunday. Join us again at the same time tomorrow for the 3rd T20I from the Gold Coast. Hope to see you then.
9.30pm Tahlia McGrath is Player of the Match in just her second T20I. McGrath: "Pretty good feeling at the moment. Bowlers set it up at the start. India bowled really well early and we're pretty happy to get away with a win and a series win. The conditions were a little bit trickier than we expected."Harmanpreet Kaur: "We were 20 runs short today. The wicket was not that easy to bat on. If we had 20 more runs the result might have been in our favour."Meg Lanning: "I thought we bowled and fielded extremely well. It was probably our best performance of the series so far. Tahlia McGrath was able to bring us home which was exciting for her. She's looked really good all series."
9.26pm Australia claim victory thanks to the cool head of Tahlia McGrath. She has had a great series and has pulled Australia out of the fire twice. Australia were in all sorts of trouble at 4 for 46 but McGrath and Mooney steadied and then Wareham played a little gem at the end. India were phenomenal with the ball. They lost this game with the bat. Gayakwad bowled magnificently. Kaur perhaps under-bowled herself and Deepti Sharma but it's hard to be critical when you only have 118 runs to play with. They needed more runs from the top order tonight.Kritesh Modi: "Tahlia McGrath has really been a thorn in India's side this series"Parishi: "Baffling captaincy. You can't expect a newcomer to deliver straightaway. Deepti should have bowled the 18th and the last over. Shikha could've bowled the penultimate over. And don't India remember how well McGrath plays in the off side. Obviously the fielding letting us down again."
