India Women fought back well to defeat Australia Women in the final ODI of the three-match series to finish 1-2. The action now moves into the Only Test match of the tour where the Indian side would look to match up to the challenge thrown at them by the hosts. It will be a different ball game and both sides would have to fight it out in the middle in an intense game.
India Women have never defeated Australia Women in this format of the game, and this is something that would play on their minds. The Australia team has always been strong at home and shall look to make good use of the conditions in this game. With their confidence high from victory in the last ODI, it will be interesting to see if the Indian side can carry forward this momentum.
Meg Lanning would be slightly upset to have lost the final ODI against India to end their 26-match winning streak. As the action now moves to the pink-ball Test Match, the Aussie skipper would have plans to come hard at the Indians. They have never lost a game against the Indian side in this format and Lanning would be aiming for a win to carry the confidence into to the T20 series.
The side would like to see a steady start from the opening pair of Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney in this game. The middle order is strong for the side with Meg Lanning looking in great form and she would aim to build partnerships with Ellyse Perry and Rachael Haynes. Down the order, the side would expect runs from Ashleigh Gardner, Nicola Carey and Tahila McGrath.
The side would like to see early wickets in this game from Perry and Darcie Brown. Both had impressed during the ODIs. Gardner will need to play the role of a first-change bowler well in this game considering India’s batting strengths. Sophie Molineux and Georgia Wareham add good variety to this attack. McGrath and Nicola Carey would be tasked with keeping the Indians under pressure in the game.

Mithali Raj would feel confident going into this game. They won the last ODI and with some luck might have finished 2-1 in the ODI series. The side has quality players who had displayed good skills back in England when the side played its last Test Match. Raj would be aware of the challenges Australia is likely to throw at them and look for a spirited show from her players.
The side would need a steady start from the opening pair of Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma as both these players look good right now. In the middle order, Raj would aim to build partnerships with Harmanpreet Kaur and Shikha Pandey. Down the order Taniya Bhatia, Pooja Vastrakar and Deepti Sharma would have to come up with contributions as the Aussie bowling attack is likely to test them.
Jhulan Goswami and Meghna Singh have impressed during the ODIs, and the side would like to see them strike early and make good use of the conditions. Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma weren’t very effective during the ODIs and they would have a very important role to play in this game. The side would also look for a good show from Pooja Vastrakar and Rajeshwari Gayakwad with the ball.

The skies would be overcast and there are chances of rains on the first two days of the game at Queensland starting September 30. We expect to see assistance for the fast bowlers in the early part of the game. Batters would need to play cautiously during this game. The side batting first would like to put more than 350 runs on the board to be in control of the game.
Carrara Oval, Queensland is a bowler-friendly ground where fast bowlers have enjoyed a good record. Batters need to spend their time at the crease and once they get their eyes set in, they have done well in the past. There isn’t much on this track for the spinners and they need to rely on their variations.
There is expected to be early assistance for the bowlers on this surface and the conditions are expected to ease as the game progresses into the 2nd day. The side winning the toss here is likely to opt for bowling first to try and put the opponents under trouble during the game.
India Women did well to grab the momentum in the last ODI but playing their first pink-ball Test Match won’t come easy to the side. Their batters will have to be on top of the game for the side to defeat the Aussies for the first time in this format. As far as the hosts are concerned, they have more strength in their batting and better knowledge of the conditions and this would make them favorites here.
