The Indian cricket team had nothing less than a triumph in mind when they faced Australia in the Women’s T20 World Cup semifinal. The Indian eves, on the other hand, struggled to play with the tenacity that was required of them, resulting in some shoddy fielding performances, including numerous catch drops. Fans vented their annoyance on social media after seeing Indian players have a forgettable game, criticizing Harmanpreet Kaur and her teammates for having a routine game.
Alyssa Healy (25), Ashleigh Gardner (31), and Beth Mooney all contributed at the top for Australia, which saw Mooney score a half-century in just 37 balls. Meg Lanning’s undefeated 49 at the conclusion helped Australia reach a respectable score of 172/4.
Australia was not as good today as the scorecard reflects. India was sloppy in the field. Let Australia score with ease. Should’ve been 140-150.#CricketTwitter #T20WorldCup #INDvAUS

Extremely poor and sloppy fielding by the Indian women on the field. They easily gave away 15-20 runs and these might be the deciding factor at the end of the match if India loses by the above run margin.
All the best to the Girls 🙂
Let’s go India!! #INDWvsAUSW
