India faced a disappointing defeat against Australia in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 on Sunday, March 08.

Garnering a massive audience of more than 86,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) witnessed the match.

Emotions ran high across social media platforms as India bundled out for 99, with Australia clinching their fifth World Cup title victory by 85 runs.

The Meg Lanning brigade who batted first posed a mammoth total of 184/4 on the board, giving Harmanpreet Kaur & Co. a record target of 185 to chase. Australia openers Alyssa Healy (77), and Beth Mooney (78 not out) scored quickfire half-centuries in the summit clash and almost knocked India out of the game in the first innings itself.

After India’s loss in the T20 WC Final, the BCCI Secretary, former and present cricketers came in support of the Women in Blue on Twitter lifting their morale.

“We either win or learn. @BCCIWomen has worked incredibly hard and has won millions of hearts with their extraordinary performance throughout the series. The nation is extremely proud of them, we salute their passion and dedication,” wrote BCCI Secretary Jay Shah.

“Well done the Women’s team @bcci @JayShah .. Two back to back World Cup finals .. but we lost .. u we’re super .. we will get there someday .. love the team and players,” tweeted BCCI president and former Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly.

“It was a delight watching you through your campaign at the #WT20WC and the many moments of brilliance you’ve given us. We are all immensely proud of what you’ve been able to achieve. Upwards and onwards, @BCCIWomen. Jai Hind,” said Jasprit Bumrah.

“Gutted by the result today. Nonetheless the girls have had a wonderful #T20WorldCup campaign. I congratulate the T20 captain @ImHarmanpreet and the girls. Well done. Request everyone to continue supporting women’s cricket. Only great things are in store,” Women’s team ODI captain Mthali Raj tweeted.
