The Indian women’s cricket team take on Australia in the final of the women’s T20 cricket event at Commonwealth Games 2022 on Sunday, August 7. The match will start at 9:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
Harmanpreet Kaur-led India women pulled off a four-run victory over hosts England in their semi-final matchup to storm into the final of the inaugural edition of the Women’s T20 event at the Commonwealth Games.
The victory meant the Women in Blue will be guaranteed to win a first-ever cricket medal at the CWG.
Australia, on the other hand, got the better of New Zealand by five wickets to reach the final of the cricket event at the Commonwealth Games (men’s or women’s) for the first time since 1998.
The then-Australian Men’s cricket team, led by Steve Waugh, settled for silver as South Africa beat them by four wickets to win the gold in the sporting event. The fixture, at that time, was a 50-overs match.
The Aussies, captained by Meg Lanning, are chasing an eighth major honour in limited-overs cricket since 2010. They have won seven of their last nine tournaments, including five Women’s T20 World Cup titles in the last decade.
The India women vs Australia women’s T20 final at the Commonwealth Games 2022 will be played at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.
