It is the gold medal game at the Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022. World T20 champions Australia Women shall look to continue their dominance as they take on India Women. Both sides have stormed into the final comfortably. India Women knocked hosts England Women enroute to this game while Australians defeated New Zealand Women.
Australians have dominated the Indians in the past and won five out of the last six games the two sides have played. The side hasn’t lost a game in this tournament, and this would make them confident. The Indians have been the second-best side and haven’t looked back since their loss against Australia. They have a history of losing finals and shall look to change that against a formidable opponent.
Harmanpreet Kaur would be a little nervous going into this contest. It was an exciting win for them against hosts England Women where the side held its nerves to win by 4 runs. However, the scale of challenge against the Australians would be different as they have already tasted loss against them in their first game. Kaur would like her side to get over the jinx of losing finals with a strong performance here.
Smriti Mandhana will have to take a lead role in opening the batting with Shafali Verma. She has been in excellent form. Jemimah Rodrigues has played well in the last two games, and she will have to anchor this innings and build partnerships with Kaur and Deepti Sharma. Indians have depth in batting and runs would be expected from the bats of Pooja Vastrakar, Sneh Rana, and Taniya Bhatia.
Their bowling attack had failed against the Aussies the last time the two sides played, and they have a big challenge on their hands. Renuka Singh and Meghna Singh leaked runs in the last game, and they have to do well here. Deepti Sharma and Sneh Rana bowled well against England and shall carry that confidence. Vastrakar, Verma, and Radha Yadav add variety to this attack and shall have to stand up to the challenge.

Meg Lanning’s side never fails to promise. It was a clinical show by the world champions as they defeated New Zealand Women by 5 wickets in the semifinal. It is another tournament where the side has entered the final without having lost a game. They have players for the big occasion and Lanning would look to grab the gold medal in this game with a strong performance.
Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy have made runs in the tournament, and they would like to put up a strong opening wicket stand. Lanning shall look to lead from the front and build partnerships with Tahlia McGrath and Rachael Haynes. Ashleigh Gardner had delivered Indians the death blow in the last game, and she would look to repeat the same magic with Grace Harris and Jess Jonassen.
Darcie Brown and Megan Schutt have been brilliant with the new ball and the pair would like to hunt early in this game. Jess Jonassen must get her lines right as she didn’t have a great show against New Zealand. Alana King, McGrath, and Gardner are players for the big occasion, and they would look to trouble the Indians.

We expect to see a clear sky over Birmingham on August 7. It has been a batter’s wicket and the ball would come to the bat nicely allowing batters to play their strokes easily. Bowlers need to make good use of the new ball to do well in the game. A score of 160 runs or more would be a fighting total in this intense contest.
Edgbaston, Birmingham is a batter’s paradise and we have already seen high-scoring contests in the tournament. The ball comes to the bat nicely and allows batters to play their strokes. Fast bowlers do well with the new ball as it swings off the surface. There isn’t turn on offer and hence spinners have to depend on their skills.
It will be a high-pressure contest and setting up a total on the board won’t be an easy task. The last two evening games here have seen sides chasing the scores win easily. Hence, we believe the side winning the toss shall have very little hesitation in inviting the opposition to bat first in this game.
India Women have played exceedingly well in the last three games. They have their batters in good form, but the side has been intimated by the Australians in the past. Their bowling attack will face an acid test in this game. Australians are known to be at their best in big games. They have players with the temperament to play these games. This would put them ahead of the Indians and the contenders for the gold medal.
