Australia Women registered a striking win against the Indian side in the 1st ODI, winning the game by 9 wickets and leading the 3-match series 1-0. There was no stopping the Australian openers as they dominated the Mithali Raj-led India throughout the chase. It’ll be interesting to see whether the Aussies seal the deal or whether the Indian women will bounce back in the 2nd ODI that is set to take place on 24th September at Harrup Park, Mackay.
The Australian side dominated the visitors in the 1st ODI and will aim to keep the momentum going. Speaking of the fantasy team, Rachel Haynes and Meg Lanning are the top batters and have been in great form over the past few matches. Additionally, all-rounder Ellyse Perry and wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy should be must-haves in one’s fantasy team and are excellent captain choices. The latter being a wicketkeeper-batter double the chances of maximising fantasy points.
Mithali Raj-led India will look to make a comeback in the 2nd ODI in order to keep the series alive. Undoubtedly, Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj are the top batter picks from the side. With Harmanpreet Kaur being ruled out of the 2nd ODI owing to her thumb injury, Deepti Sharma will be the key all-rounder for the side to bank on.
