Australia’s streak of 26 straight One-day International wins came to an end on Sunday, fittingly against India, the team that started the streak.
Young batters Yastika Bhatia and Shafali Verma dazzled at the top with contrasting half-centuries to power their team to a two-wicket victory over Australia in the third ODI of the multi-format series.
The visitors completed a tricky chase of 265 – their highest-ever – in the last over, gaining some lost ground ahead of the upcoming day-night Test, after conceding the three-match series in their previous outing.
