Poonam Yadav spins India to victory against Australia

Leg-spinner Poonam Yadav was the architect behind India's win, bowling a magical spell in her comeback game.

Healy played a lone hand in Australia's 17-run loss to India on Friday night, hitting 51 from 35 balls to put the hosts in a winning position in the T20 opener. "We came into this match as ready as we could have been but India outplayed us a little bit".

The defending champions looked to be cruising in their chase of 133 but four wickets for six runs from Yadav saw the game flip on its head at the Sydney Showground.

Deepti Sharma (49no) had lifted India past 130 after Australia initially pegged back their opponents from a rip-roaring start as teenager Shafali Verma (29) helped her side reach 40-0 off four overs. However, they lost quick wickets.

Krishnamachari Srikkanth top-scored for India with a knock of 38 runs and Andy Roberts took the maximum wickets for West Indies as he sent three batsmen to the pavilion.

Seamer Shikha Pandey (3-13) dismissed Gardner caught and bowled in the final over and Molly Strano was run out on the penultimate ball to end the innings on 110 all out.

Deepti Sharma joined Jemimah Rodrigues at the wicket for the task of rebuilding the innings and the pair steadied the ship with a 53-run partnership for the fourth wicket. In response to India's 132, Australia were bundled out on 115 in 19.5 overs.

"Upon reviewing it later, there will be some comments about how we approached that", Healy said.

Poonam Yadav thought she had five wickets, but her delivery was deemed a no ball.

Yadav then tempted Haynes down the pitch and she was stumped before Perry was bowled for a golden duck.

The 28-year-old found Jess Jonassen's outer edge from the hat-trick ball, but wicketkeeper Taniya Bhatia spilled the catch in an impeccable display behind the stumps.

But she soon struck again to snare Jonassen and Australia could find no way back.
