    THAT’S IT! It was just a matter of time, and Eves have folded for 235. They concede the series 0-3 without putting up a fight. They would be entirely disappointed after the highs in South Africa. If their batting continued to fail in all encounters, they remained pretty average (below average today) with the ball. Australia Women deserve credit for getting used to conditions, and repeating their dominant show in all the ODIs.

    Pooja Vastrakar was the last wicket to fall. Gardner, Ellyse Perry and Schutt share 7 wickets after the tone was set by Alyssa Healy’s maiden ton.

    From 147 for 2, Eves are now 221 for 8. The writing was on the wall ever since the Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur departed. Much like Team India, Eves’ lower order issues have also been exposed in this ODI series. They have been below par in all encounters with the willow. At present, Eves need 112 off 61 balls.

  • 3:01 PM IST

    Mona Meshram comes and departs soon. Ashleigh Gardner is running riot single-handedly. 0-3 surely on cards for hosts. Eves 182-5.

  • 2:56 PM IST

    Drinks. India running out of steam? They have just lost skipper Mithali Raj (21). They need 154 off 126 balls. Who will deliver?

  • 2:45 PM IST

    India Women 173-3 (27).

  • 2:45 PM IST

    Harmanpreet Kaur falls for 25. India are still keeping up with the run-rate, but need to be wary of this phase. Mithali needs to play around with adequate support. In such tall chases, the defending side always gets chances to bounce back. Few tight overs, or wickets will turn it around for Australia.

  • 2:21 PM IST

    Despite losing in-form Mandhana, Indian Eves are still in the hunt. Harmanpreet and Mithali are batting sensibly, and trying to maintain the run-rate (over 7). As a result, they are ahead of the required run-rate so far. The duo have added 45 off 40 balls, and India are 146-2 (20.4).

  • 1:58 PM IST

    With both the openers back in the hut, the onus lies on experienced duos — Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur. India 102 for 2 (14.2).

  • 1:20 PM IST

    So far, so good. Jemimah Rodrigues and Smriti are batting with full confidence. With no pressure to win the series (although they need to avoid a whitewash), it can bring out the best from Indian Eves. They are 48 for no loss in 6.4 overs.

    Nonetheless, the target is far far away. The openers have to consolidate and take the score ahead.
  • 1:07 PM IST

    Smriti Mandhana has stated that she is eager for team to rediscover their mojo. Will she take charge in this humongous chase?

  • 1:06 PM IST

    Eves commence chase. They are, at present, 16 for no loss.

  • 12:30 PM IST

    Australia end at 332 for 7 in 50 overs. MASSIVE!

  • 12:22 PM IST

    India’s plight can be known for the fact that they have used 8 bowlers. Only Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma have managed to curtail the run-flow to some extend.

    Nonetheless, Eves’ are already set to chase a humongous total. With their bat failing to inspire collectively, they have a huge task to salvage some pride in this dead rubber.
  • 11:54 AM IST

    Few wickets have fallen, and could hurt Australia’s final score. Nonetheless, they are 258-5 in 43 overs. Haynes has been run-out for 43, and centurion Alyssa Healy departed for a match-winning 133.

  • 11:29 AM IST

    A maiden ODI hundred for Alyssa Healy. What a performance. She has batted really well and sensibly. Australia eyeing a total in excess of 320? Possible if she sticks around.

    AUSW 218-3 (38).
  • 11:00 AM IST

    If it was Bolton for the first two ODIs, it is Alyssa who is taking the game away from the Eves today. Australia are sitting pretty at 162-3 (31.2) overs, and Alyssa is unbeaten on 94*.

  • 10:33 AM IST

    It is again not looking good for hosts. After losing Lanning, Australia are again on track to get a good score courtesy a strong partnership between Ellyse and Alyssa. The latter is unbeaten on 69*, and Ellyse is set on 27*. The duo have added 64 together off 81 balls. AUSW 128-2 (24)

  • 9:48 AM IST

    The run-rate is near 6 which is pleasing for their camp.

  • 9:47 AM IST

    At present, Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy are in the middle. Aussies need to be wary of this period, and not lose momentum by conceding wickets at regular intervals.

  • 9:47 AM IST

    Earlier, Eves started off on the right note by sending off in-form batter Nicole Bolton for 11. She fell to Ekta Bisht; caught and bowled.

  • 9:46 AM IST

    Australia Women have opted to bat, and are currently 64 for 2. Alyssa Healy has got a start and batting on 33*. Indian Eves have been able to get rid of Lanning (18) off Deepti Sharma.

  • 9:44 AM IST

    As mentioned in preview, India women take on Australia to play for pride in the three-match ODIs after having lost the series already.

Good Afternoon/Morning! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket blog of the Australia women’s tour of India. The third and final ODI of the three-match series sees India play for pride. Australia have convincingly beaten Indian Women in the first two matches to gain crucial championship points.

This has been a poor show by India, they are yet to win a match against Australia; warm ups included. India have dearly missed Jhulan Goswami, in her absence Shikha Pandey and Pooja Vastrakar have struggled. Ekta Bisht and Poonam Yadav too have been unable to make any impact on the series. For Australia, Nicole Bolton and Ellyse Perry have been in reverting form. Beth Mooney and Meg Lanning have contributed as well.

Post this series, India will clash in tri-nation T20I series involving Australia and England. All matches will take place at  Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.
