BAtting first Australia scored 161 runs for 8 wickets loss where Mooney scored the highest run for Australia. Mooney scored 61 runs off just 41 balls and lifts the total to 161 runs.
Speaking to a media after the final, Harmanpreet Kaur admitted that the side did the same mistakes as they have done in the past in big tournaments.
“Yeah definitely it is a big moment for all of us. First time, we were participating and the way we played this tournament, it was great to watch. We were close to gold medal, but once again we did the same mistakes we have been doing in the big tournaments.
You know, we have to keep working hard on lower-order batting. I am sure we will do well in the upcoming tournaments. I think this silver medal matters a lot, this will definitely motivate young girls back home,” Harmanpreet said.
Before the CWG gold medal match, Australia’s Tahlia McGrath tested positive for COVID-19, but she was allowed to play the final.
“Well, they did inform us before the toss, it was something which was not in our control. We went with the sportsman spirit, she was not that ill, we did what we had to do, it was not in our control,” said the India skipper.
When asked about Women’s IPL, Harmanpreet said: “We are waiting for long time, these things are being discussed. If we get the platform, it will be really nice.”
