That’s also it from our side. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. What a compelling series this turned out to be, and eventually, it is Australia who will fly home with a happy grin after topping the series 4-1. For now, this is Megh Mandaliya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Ayan Chatterjee, and scorer/analyst Paras Yadav. Goodbye! 
Tahlia McGrath goes up and now collects the Trophy and now she takes it to her teammates. Australia will celebrate this and so they should for the rest of the night. They pose in front of the champions tag in front of the camera. 
Tahlia McGrath (Australia Women Captain): "It is always a great battle against India. We like to stay ahead in the game that is probably what got us off the line. The crowds have been next-level and India came hard out but we expected that to pan out. Everyone was so passionate and so loud about cricket and we played at some incredible venues."  
Ashleigh Gardner: "Yes, exactly. I am enjoying my cricket and reaping the rewards on the field. Yes, absolutely. Easy batting with Grace, she takes the pressure off me and she talks and hits them the big one. I am a bit of both. It depends on the day. Can't choose whether I am a batter or a bowler. I think when you are out of form, you try to do range hitting. It's about time for the ball and I am happy to contribute to the team. I am an all-rounder and take my role seriously. Thank You Very Much." 
The Player of the Match and Series goes to Ashleigh Gardner.    
The game-changer of the Match goes to Grace Harris.    
Harmanpreet Kaur (India Women Captain): "Yes, I think we were really good in the first 10-12 overs and after that, we were able no bowl what we planned. But a lot of leanings for us in this series and really happy to participate in this series. When Australia came here, we were aware of the kind of game they play and I am really happy to improve in some areas. We have learned a lot of things from the Australian team such as clearing the boundaries. We have a month off now and we want to train ourselves hard before the T20 Women's World Cup next year."  
Time for the post-match presentation.  
Heather Graham: "I am not sure, to be honest, It's a weird game. The bowlers at the top and the way Ash and Harris batted were great.  Oh, I think the way the wicket played. It was turning and gripping as the slower ones were. I was fortunate to get the wickets. I did not realize it was a hat-trick ball unless I was told. I bowled on a pace ball and got my success. Yes, those are great stats will tell Schutt. This is massive in the lead-up to the World Cup. Two new captains and a few personnel changes. To come out and win so well is amazing and gives us momentum going into the Pakistan series. Yes, Harris hits the ball cleanly, and am happy to sit at home and see those hits. Thank You very much." 
10:00 PM IST | That’s it! Australia has clinched the five-match T20I series 4-1 and what an assertive performance this has been from the number one-ranked side. There is something about this Australian side that keeps one on the edge. India has been bowled out for 142 in the final T20I and the Aussie team is delighted. 

In pursuit of a  hefty total of 197, the Indian batters succumbed to pressure early on by giving away three scalps in the powerplay. Southpaw Smriti Mandhana was the first one to return back as Darcie Brown outwitted her in the fourth delivery of the Indian innings. 

Harleen Deol, the next batter in, allied with Shafali Verma 13(14) to bestow a brief period of respite for India before Verma departed trying for a maximum. Following Verma’s wicket, India failed to rotate the strike at regular intervals, and the building pressure trapped Harmanpreet Kaur in front 12(11). 

To fan the flames, Harleen Deol, who was nearly striking at 150 was involved in a mix-up and had to turn back with a score of 24 (16). The Australian bowlers were inch-perfect and exploited the surface consistently by aggregating wickets at regular intervals. 

Deepti Sharma orchestrated 53 (34), including 8 fours and 1 maximum, and gave out a fighting spirit but the target was too good to be chased down by her alone. Heather Graham only bowled two overs but grabbed 4 wickets, including a hat-trick. Other than that, Ashleigh Gardner also claimed a couple of wickets by giving away 20 runs. 

Earlier in the day, after being invited to bat first, Australia registered 196/4 on board. In absence of Healy, veteran Beth Mooney was expected to pave the way for the middle order but she was chopped on by Anjali Sarvani early on in the first innings for the score of 2(4). That was soon followed by the wicket of Phoebe Litchfield 11(9). 

When Australia was tottering at 72/4 at the halfway stage, Ashleigh Gardner and Grace Harris commenced an unimaginable assault and since then, the Indian bowlers lost the thread. The right-handed duo of Gardner and Harris stitched a partnership of 129 runs to cruise Australia past 190. 

Gardner secured 66(32), including 11 fours and 1 maximum, while Harris netted 64(35) with 6 fours and 4 maximums to her credit. As far as the Indian bowlers are concerned, Anjali Sarvani, Deepti Sharma, Shafali Verma, and Devika Vaidya claimed a wicket each but none of them bowled below an economy rate of 8. 

Stick around for the post-match presentation!
