India did not play a defensive game during their one and only Test match against Australia at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, according to Harmanpreet Kaur. On Sunday, December 24, India won their first-ever Women’s Test match against Australia since 1977, defeating Alyssa Healy and Co. by eight wickets.

The captain stated that Richa Ghosh was moved to bat at number three because India did not want to play defensive cricket. Richa made her debut following Shubha Satheesh‘s withdrawal from the One Test against England because of an injury.

“A reward for the countless years of arduous labor we have put in. Bravo to the group and the helpers. Prize for perseverance and hard work” Harmanpreet was cited as saying.

“I bowled because our support staff asked me to, and I took those two crucial wickets,” she said.
Harmanpreet not only performed admirably as captain but also as a bowler, taking two vital wickets in Alyssa Healy and Tahlia McGrath.

“Our bowling coach does not teach the bowlers to be defensive; he only teaches them how to take wickets. What’s the best we can contribute to the team, and what’s the best we can do?” Harmanpreet asked.

“I wanted to express my gratitude to the BCCI for providing this chance. We have also been given faith in by the selectors. She continued, “Thanks also to the crowd, who have been coming in all four days.

Day 4 saw India dismiss Australia for 261 runs, following which they pursued a target of 75 in 18.4 overs.
