Team India was restricted to a below-par 130/8 by Australia in the second and penultimate women's T20 International at the DY Patel Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on Sunday. All-rounder Deepti Sharma was India top-scorer, making 30 runs in 27 balls. The innings also witnessed Sharma crossing the 1000-run mark in the game's shortest format. 

Sent into bat, the Indian batters failed to come up with substantial contributions in the face of some disciplined bowling by the visitors, especially Kim Garth (2/27 in 4 overs) in the beginning and then Georgia Wareham (2/17 in 4 overs).

Annabel Sutherland also excellent with the ball as she finished with figures of 2/18 in her full quota of four overs.

 A victory today will help India seal the three-match series.

Brief scores: India: 130/8 in 20 overs (Smriti Mandhana 23, Richa Ghosh 23, Deepti Sharma 30; Kim Garth 2/27, Georgia Wareham 2/27, Annabel Sutherland 2/18).
