Hello and welcome to Sports Stars’ live coverage of the Pink Ball Test between Australian women and Indian women in Carrara. These are Lavanya Lakshminarayanan and Dhruva Prasad and we will walk you through the game of the day today. LIVE SCORE: IND: 19/0 (5 overs) IND 19/0 (5 overs): Ellyse Perry is now much more controlled. She alternates between good length and fuller deliveries here, but Shafali always finds the outfield players. A girl for Perry.
IND 19/0 (4 overs): Brown returns. This time against Shafali. Nice length variations here. Only one run wins. Very talkative ducks (or seagulls?) At the Metricon Stadium in Carrara. I wonder what they think of India’s start this morning.IND 18/0 (3 overs): Shafali goes on strike and receives two slips. Pretty quiet start, but what is it! Shafali got one slipped and Meg Lanning seems to have dropped it! Perry sends a long ball and he walks to Lanning’s right, but the ball slips straight out of her hands. She won’t be satisfied with that. Shafali gets a single. Mandhana frustrates Perry a little more with a border right after the fine leg. Check out the shape it is in! Healy: The morning was pretty chaotic. We had about two minutes to get ready.
Regarding Lanning’s inability to lose a throw: Meg said Mithali changed at the last minute and said tails instead of heads. It worked for us. She said Mithali should just stick to it and she will win one. We don’t know how she (Meg) does it. IND 11/0 (2 overs): Darcie Brown is in Test Cricket for her first over and is immediately sent off for two boundaries – one to Midwicket and the other to the bottom. Smriti Mandhana is sensitive. The outfield is very fast here in Carrara. A little more expensive than Brown would have liked. India, more precisely Mandhana, starts here confidently. I can’t wait to hear Healy’s thoughts on communication.
IND 1/0 (1 above): Perry is slowly picking up speed. She has varied her lengths here in this delivery by changing the length of balls, narrow lines and inflated balls from behind. Only one overflowed.
Ellyse Perry will initiate proceedings for Australia. Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana have kept watch and how it happens – the ‘Jeetega bhai jeetega, India jeetega’ (India will win) are there as the background score for this start 9:58 AM: Reporters in Australia saw Stella Campbell as she got her test cap from Mitchell Starc. The pictures we want to see! 23 degrees in Carrara and the clouds seem to have given way to a fantastic blue sky. A cracking day of cricket (without hexing anything) awaits us. Grab your snacks and experience live action in minutes.
Australia XI: Healy (wk), Mooney, Lanning (c), Perry, McGrath, Gardner, Sutherland, Molineux, Wareham, Brown, Campbell India XI: Mandhana, Verma, Raut, Raj (c), Y.Bhatia , Sharma, T Bhatia (wk), Vastrakar, Goswami, Singh, Gayakwad
9:45 am IS: No place in the test team for Jemimah Rodrigues. You have to feel with the young dough from Mumbai. She looked fine during her stay at The Hundred. Not even Sneh Rana – the star of the Bristol Test.
Another interesting tidbit for you: Claire Polosak is in office today. She is the first Australian to officiate in all formats of the game.
9:30 AM IS: TOSS: Meg Lanning won the toss and Australia will bowl first. Mithali Raj says she did the same.
Team News: Stella Campbell, Darcie Brown, Georgia Wareham and Annabel Sutherland make their debut for Australia. For India, Yastika Bhatia and Meghna Singh will dress the whites for the first time in their careers.
9:15 AM: The last time India played a Test was in Bristol in June this year. In four days of dedicated red ball cricket, Mithali Raj’s India Heather Knights walled England in for a draw after it looked like an easy win for the hosts. Here’s a look at the stars of this game:
One-off test of India women against England women: debutantes are in charge
The Indians are in tests on an undefeated series of five games. Can Australia take revenge and ruin the party? 9:10 AM IST: Throw in 20 odd minutes. This game seems to be won and lost with the Tempo arsenal that both teams come with. Talia McGrath, Annabel Sutherland, and Stella Campbell experienced intense networking sessions this morning. The team compositions will be interesting. What do you think the Indian XI should look like?
8:40 AM: We know how well known the Pink Ball can move in these games. We saw what Meghna Singh brought out of the surface in Mackay with her impressive outswingers. Will she make it into the line-up today? Tweet us your predicted XI at @Sportstarweb. Listen to what the Indian skipper had to say before the game:
Now that the Indian women’s cricket team has gained self-confidence through a fierce performance in the one-day tournaments, it’s time for its day – Passing a trial by fire against Australia in Gold Coast on Thursday night test debut.
With the third ODI on Sunday and a rest day the following day, India only had two training sessions ahead of the groundbreaking test. The visiting team lost 2-1 in the shorter format series. The squad has very little idea of how the bright pink ball will behave during the game at Metricon Stadium. Australia, which completed its only day-night test in November 2017, is also entering the game with limited practice, but its potent tempo attack will look forward to ravaging the greenish pitch here.
India has on its first friendly in seven years, drew against England in June, but players and experts believe the slippery pink ball will be a much tougher challenge for the visiting team. India and Australia last played a Test in 2006, with only Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami appearing among the current players on both sides in that game.
Harmanpreet Kaur was dismissed despite having a hit in the nets the night before the game. Rookie batter Yastika Bhatia and pacemaker Meghna Singh, who made impressive debuts in the ODI series, received their first test caps.
Veteran Jhulan Goswami, Meghna and Pooja Vastrakar is the likely pace combination. Spinner Sneh Rana is likely to be the other all-rounder in the team next to Deepti Sharma.
It is expected that wicket keeper Taniya Bhatia, who was defeated by Richa Ghosh in ODIs, is back behind the stumps. Punam Raut, who took part in the England Test and lost her place in the ODI, is expected to play.

Australia, on the other hand, suffered a blow ahead of the game when vice-captain Rachael Haynes was excluded due to a thigh injury. Skipper Meg Lanning said the team will select either a fast bowling all-rounder or a specialized batsman in their place. Annabel Sutherland, who impressed in the ODIs, is expected to make her debut.
“It will depend a little on the wicket. There’s a green cast to that, and that may bring some of our speed bowling all-rounders into the frame. We just have to decide whether we want to go with the specific batter position or with the all-rounder position so that we can make the call today after practice, ”said Lanning.
Australia will aim for a perfect game after India finished his 26-game winning streak in the third ODI.
With the pink ball, his relatively inexperienced tempo attack is more than capable of unsettling the Indian thugs.
Shantha Rangaswamy weighed the test: « Me would call it a trial by fire for the Indians. The players have hardly played with the red ball in the past three to four years. Day-night testing is a completely different ball game and a much tougher challenge. While Australia has had more testing experience than India lately, its players haven’t played much in the whites either. Some of their main players are missing and India has shown (in ODIs) that Australia is beatable. ”
THE SERIES SO FAR: Australia goes into this test with a 2-1 lead in the three ODIs played in Mackay. In the third ODI, India finished Meg Lanning’s undefeated streak in format. 26 victories in a row in this format are no joke and it took a special performance by the Indians to stop this record run.

There are several injury updates prior to this test. Harmanpreet Kaur will not play this game due to a thumb injury. For Australia, Rachel Haynes will be suspending not only this test but the rest of the series due to a thigh injury sustained during the ODI leg of the series.
