Indian women's cricket team all out for 200 against Australia

In Cricket, Australia women defeated India by 8 wickets in the first One-Day International of the three-match series in Vadodara. However, Mandhana was trapped in front of the wicket by Amanda-Jade Wellington in the first ball of the 10th over, giving the leg-spinner the first of her three wickets.

Brief Scores: India 200 (Pooja Vastrakar 51, Sushma Verma 41, Punam Raut 37; Jess Jonassen 4/30, Amanda Wellington 3/24) lose to Australia 201/2 (Nicole Bolton 100 not out, Alyssa Healy 38, Meg Lanning 33) by 8 wickets.

Coming in to bat first, India struggled to put up a below par score of 200.

Australia have taken a 1-0 lead in the thee-match series but skipper Lanning wasn't happy with her team's performance, saying that they didn't deserve to win. Mithali Raj's unavailability because of an illness meant 17-year old Jemimah Rodrigues was handed an ODI debut, which turned out to be forgettable for her.

"It was a hard day for us".

In general, the researchers found that the misinformation spread faster because it was more fanciful and outrageous. Twitter provided support for the research and granted the MIT team full access to its historical archives.

Indian pacer Shikha Pandey claimed a wicket while Australian spinner finished with a four-wicket haul. "Obviously, we run through the same people such as Raj [Mithali Raj] and Kaur [Harmanpreet Kaur] and obviously the last time that we played them, it didn't end so well in that kind of sense, so yeah, I thought we have really done the planning well and should the same situation arise, I think we are ready for it", Schutt told reporters here.

It was left to a spirited Pooja Vastrakar, in only her second ODI, to give respectability to the innings. But happy that the lower middle-order batted well. Bowling allrounder Vastrakar partnered No. 7 wicketkeeper-batsman Sushma Verma to breathe animation into an tail that has time and again failed to wag under pressure. "I think it will turn more in the two matches that will follow here", she said.

Kaur pointed out to her bowlers not sticking to the field settings and their tactics simply not working.

Batting only for the third time in global cricket, Vastrakar's 51-ball 50 featured seven fours and a six that lent credence to her established pinch-hitting prowess in the domestic circuit. "Our spinners got the ball to turn".
