After losing the opening match of three-match One-day International (ODI) series to Australia by eight wickets, the Women-in-Blue will aim to bounce back in the tournament when they will face Meg Lanning-led squad for the second ODI at Reliance Stadium in Vadodara on 15th March.
In the first ODI, skipper Mithali Raj was absent due to fever and Raj less India got off the poor start in the home series.
Earlier on Monday, after winning the toss, stand-in skipper Harmanpreet Kaur opted to bat first and soon the decision back-fired as the Indian team lost half of their batting line-up even before reaching the 100-run mark.
However, with the help of Pooja Vataskar’s maiden half-century, the Women-in-Blue somehow managed to score 200 runs for 10 wickets.
Following the target, Australia won the match in the 33rd over with eight wickets remaining. Opener Nicole Bolton slammed a ton.
Australia have taken the lead of 1-0 in the series.
