That's it from our coverage of the 2nd WODI between India and Australia. Ninaad Dixit here signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Akshay Bhide and scorers Dushyant Kumar and Asraj Khan. Stay tuned for more cricketing action from around the world.
Annabel Sutherland (Player of the Match): "It was good fun, just team effort in the field. All the way we held the nerve as much as possible.

Mostly I try and hit the stumps and play as much as possible so probably the bowled stands out. Skipper had faith in me and I did the job.

I just try to read the game as much as possible. Done a fair bit of work with our bowling coach. Experienced through domestic comps back home and franchise cricket around the world too. It certainly takes bit of practice in those situations at the backend of the game, I try to back my skills and trust my instincts.

I thought it was tricky with the spin. The pitch was slower than the previous game. Alana King was unbelievable with her striking towards the end. I guess we took the momentum in our fielding innings on the back of that. Phoebe also grinded through. We needed that to get to that total."
Annabel Sutherland is the Player of the Match.
Alyssa Healy (Australia Captain): "Yeah. It was. It got very close in the end. But credit to our girls for holding the nerves and finishing on the winning side.

I think we fell really short. I feel we took some momentum into the break, with Alana King whacking some sixes in the end. I feel we lost a few more wickets at the back end of the innings.

We hang in there. It's something about Australian sports teams. We hang in there. We knew we had to hang in there till the last ball. We dropped a few catches and let ourselves down but the energy of the girls till the last moment was incredible.

It's amazing. A lot has changed in our team in the last 12-18 months that everyone forgets. But the youngsters keep stepping up and contributing to the team. It's also about the team's culture as well. Really glad to see them performing.

See you in 2024."
Harmanpreet Kaur (India Captain): "We bowled really well today. We planned that we have to keep thinking about taking wickets and keep them for a decent total. Lot of positives but they took the game away from us. I am proud of the way we played.

Bit more of awareness if we could have shown would have played a big role in the end. Richa played a very good innings and Jemimah helped her in the middle. We have seen a couple of good performances and looking for the next game now.

They have a very long batting lineup and we know if you can stop the Aussie team for less than 300, its a positive sign and we knew we can chase it.

Dropping catches is a part of the game. We are playing under a lot of heat and so much cricket back to back. We just keep telling our bowlers that you are doing a great job and we will support you."
Phoebe Litchfield: “Yeah. To be honest, it was a big challenge. If you watched it, I was really struggling. Their spinners were bowling beautifully and it was a challenging pitch. But I feel 250 was par and I can rest now.

It’s a dream to be batting with Ellyse. She is an amazing player. She takes pressure off me and it’s great to play along with her. Hopefully, some more partnerships in the future.

I think you saw Ash’s first over, she didn’t get enough spin. She came 15 overs later and got turn. It was good to bat early on and became challenging as the game progressed.

I feel it was It felt really good. It was great to grab that. Probably my mum is camera shy. Maybe she clapped, smiled.

Just holding our nerves. Just taking the catches when they come our way and putting pressure on them. Bels and Ash at the other end bowled brilliantly and helped us win."
9:15 PM IST and Local Time: A thriller at Wankhede stadium comes to an end as Australia come out victorious by 3 runs to get an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series against the Indian side.

Quick recap to the match as Australia won the toss and elected to bat first and scored 258/8 with Phoebe Litchfield (63) and Ellyse Perry (50) scoring half centuries. Deepti Sharma starred with the ball with figures of 5/38.

There were a lot of dropped catches in the first innings and the trend continued in the second innings till the last over of the match. The opening pair of Yastika Bhatia (14) and Smriti Mandhana (34) added 37 for the first wicket before Kim Garth broke the stand in the 7th over.

Mandhana joined forces with Richa Ghosh adding 34 for the second wicket before Alana King made her play a rash stroke and got the scalp. Richa continued her good form and added 88 runs with Jemimah Rodrigues (44 off 55).

Richa's strike rate was a sign of concern with the chase looking to go deep and closer than what it seemed. She fought back and got to her 50 in 74 balls amidst skipper Harmanpreet Kaur failing to impress with just 5 off 10 balls.

Suffering through cramps and a dropped catch off the very first ball she faced, Ghosh scored 96 in 117 deliveries with 13 boundaries and was dismissed by Annabel Sutherland with the equation for the team 41 off 37 balls.

The lower middle order comprised of totally intent-less batting and failed to score 16 off the final over with the equation once being 22 off 18 deliveries. Annabel Sutherland was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/47.

Georgia Wareham picked up 2/39 in 7 overs with Kim Garth (1/24), Ashleigh Gardner (1/46) and Alana King (1/43) taking a wicket apiece. Allrounder Sneh Rana didn't bat due to a concussion she suffered due to a collision in the first innings and was replaced by Harleen Deol in the batting innings.

In the end, Australia took the game home by keeping their nerves with a 3-run win. Its the end of the year 2023 for both the teams with the series finale being played on Tuesday, January 2nd at the same venue.

Stay tuned as we bring you the post match coverage.

49.6 A Sutherland to S Patil
4 FOUR RUNS BUT AUSTRALIA TAKE THE SERIES AND THE MATCH! Short and outside the off stump, Patil plays the reverse pull shot beating short third man to her right and gets to the fence. Australia win by 3 runs on the final ball of the match.
8 required from the last ball. A legal delivery from Sutherland and Australia Women wrap up the series.
49.5 A Sutherland to D Sharma
1 89.2 kph. Good length slower one outside the off stump. Deepti waits for it and lofts from the bottom of the bat, finds long on who takes it on one bounce.
DOT BALL!!! Excellent from Sutherland. 9 required from 2 now. India need a boundary.
