Australian Women Cricket Team

Matthew Mott, the head coach of the Australian women's cricket team, has shrugged off Alyssa Healy's dire form in the lead up to the T20 World Cup and backed the hard-hitting opener to perform when it counts.

However, Mandhana's dismissal in the 15th over, caught brilliantly by Nicola Carey in the deep mid-wicket, turned the match in Australia's favour as they put the brakes on India's scoring while at the same time taking wickets.

It was the departure of skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, in the 16th over, which dashed India's hopes of a victory.

Earlier, India's Rajeshwari Gayakwad leaked 19 runs in the last over to let Australia off the hook and post a challenging total on the board.

Opener Beth Mooney top-scored for the hosts with an aggressive 71 off 54 balls, hitting nine boundaries.

"She plays a game that is high risk and it’s not going to come off all the time," Mott told reporters in Adelaide.

“If you want us to be fearless and all the things that we bang on about all the time, when you get out a couple of times you can’t try and reinvent the wheel."

Healy dominated the 2018 tournament in West Indies, topping the batting charts with 225 runs at an average of 56.25.

"She is not out there struggling at the moment,” Mott said.

"The good thing is, the main tournament is coming up (and) she delivered in the last World Cup just about every game.

"So with quality players like that you have just got to keep backing them in because they can win you matches."

While South Australia have been inconsistent in the Women's National Cricket League, New South Wales have had a disappointing start to their campaign in the tournament.

South Australia Women have blown hot and cold in this edition of Australian Women’s premier domestic 50-over tournament. They have won two games and lost as many in the 2021 Women's National Cricket League.

Their losses were close ones, with their bowlers keeping South Australia afloat more often than not. Their batting, however, needs to step up if they wish to go deep in the Women's National Cricket League.

Meanwhile, New South Wales Women are yet to win a game in the Women's National Cricket League. They lost their first two games in the tournament, as their batting couldn’t put up competitive totals on the board.

However, in their last Women's National Cricket League game, they eked out a tie against table-toppers Tasmania, giving them their first points in the tournament. New South Wales will hope to build on that result and gather some momentum heading into the latter stage of the Women's National Cricket League.

Pitch Report

The Junction Oval in Melbourne is typically a good track to bat on. However, in the two games played at this venue in the Women's National Cricket League, New South Wales recorded scores of 241 and 206 batting first, which were easily chased down by Victoria on both occasions.

The pitch is likely to assist spinners, while there is some movement expected early on for the fast bowlers.
