WBBL 2021 | Harmanpreet Kaur’s all-round show, Poonam Yadav’s match-winning spell in limelight

India Women’s T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur seems to be on a roll and have found her form just at the right time it seems. In back to back games, she gave match-winning performances, one with the bat and one with the ball to get her team Melbourne Renegades Women to the top of the Women’s Big Bash League 2021 points table. The off-spinner picked three wickets, giving away just 22 runs in her four overs to restrict the Melbourne Stars Women unit to only 103 in 20 overs in the first derby game of the season at Adelaide Oval. Along with her Sophie Molineux also picked two wickets. While coming to chase the total, the Gades were up and running and chased down the total in only 14.1 overs with Jemimah Rodrigues playing yet another brilliant innings of 45 off just 38 balls. In another game, Poonam Yadav, the Indian slow leg spinner was also in the limelight with her bowling as she picked the wicket of her compatriot Smriti Mandhana as her team Brisbane Heat Women restricted Mandhana’s Sydney Thunder to 143-7 in their 20 overs. Yadav in total picked three wickets in the game and was a front runner for the Player of the Match award before Georgia Redmayne hit a match-winning fifty to propel the Heat to their fifth win in nine games, which lifted them to second place in the points table.

AUS W vs IND W | Australia Women opener Rachael Haynes ruled out of only Test, T20I series

AUS W vs IND W | Australia Women opener Rachael Haynes ruled out of only Test, T20I series

Just ahead of the start of the only Test, a day/night affair in Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast between Australia Women and India Women, Aussie opener Rachael Haynes has been ruled out for the rest of the series including only Test and three T20Is. It was reported that she suffered a right hamstring injury during Sunday's third ODI. "Unfortunately her hamstring is no good," Matthew Mott, Australian Women head coach was quoted as saying in an official press release. "She's devastated – obviously Test matches don't come around too often, she's a key member of our squad so our thoughts are with her at the moment,” he added. With the 34-year-old Haynes not playing, it might be a chance for either Georgia Redmayne to get her first crack at the red cherry. Another consideration might be of all-rounder Tahlia McGrath who has done exceptionally well with the bat and has been more than good enough with the ball in the series so far. In both cases, Beth Mooney would be asked to open. Mott was excited about leg-spinner Georgia Wareham getting back to her fit self and hoped that she will make the debut. "Georgia's ticking all the boxes for her return to play," he said. "She was very sensible around that – she felt something quite early, got treatment and has been doing everything she can to get it right. "So hopefully she gets the opportunity – she's done everything in her powers to be ready,” he said. The only Test begins on Thursday, September 30.

Star performer Megan Schutt misses out as Australia Women announce squad for series against India

The Australian Women’s selection committee announced an 18-member squad for their home series against India Women which begins on September 19 with the first of the three ODIs at North Sydney Oval. Star performers Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen along with Belinda Vakarewa will miss this important series for the Southern Stars. While Schutt and Belinda asked not to be considered for the series due to personal reasons, Jonassen seems to be still nursing her Tibia injury. To cover those gaps, the selectors have given maiden national call ups to Stella Campbell and Georgia Redmayne while Maitlan Brown makes a return to the national set-up after a long layoff due to injury. National selector Shawn Flegler admitted that the board is in full support of Schutt and Belinda and accepted their request for non-consideration. "We're fully supportive of the requests from Belinda and Megan to not be considered for selection. As the leader of the bowling attack, Megan's absence will provide the opportunity for someone else to lay the type of role she has so well over a lengthy period." Talking about the new entrants in the team, Flegler said, "Stella is yet another young fast bowler to have come through the pathway and adds another layer of depth to an emerging pace-bowling group.” “Georgia's selection is recognition of the strong couple of domestic seasons she's produced, and it's been pleasing to see her really start to expand her game in recent times,” he added. After the ODIs, the lone Test at the WACA in Perth would be played from September 30 while the tour will end with a three-match T20I series, starting with the first match in Sydney on October 7. Australia squad: Meg Lanning, Rachael Haynes, Darcie Brown, Maitlan Brown, Stella Campbell, Nicola Carey, Hannah Darlington, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Tahlia McGrath, Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Georgia Redmayne, Molly Strano, Annabel Sutherland, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham.
