The Indian women’s cricket team faced a sad loss in the Commonwealth Games’ gold medal game as the side came up 9 runs short vs Australia. As a result, the Harmanpreet Kaur- led side had to settle with a silver medal. The match ended up being a real thrill ride, and in the last over, India required 17 races to win with four wickets in hand in the final 2 overs. In any case, Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen held their nerve for Australia and eventually, Australia wrapped up a win.
As the game was in the dying minutes, the Indian men’s cricket team also followed the Commonwealth Games final in Florida, and the official Instagram account of the Indian cricket team shared a photograph of Rohit Sharma and co watching the match.
“Nail-biter at Edgbaston. Senior men’s team following #TeamIndia’s progress in the #B2022 Final,” read the caption of the post.
Earlier on Sunday, New Zealand had won the bronze medal in women’s cricket after beating England.
The Indian men’s cricket team beat West Indies in the 5th and final T20I on Sunday to complete the series 4-1. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were rested for the final game.
