Pressure talking now. Gardner also tries to take the aerial route and ends up getting caught. India turning the screws here. 

23:01 (IST)17 Nov 2018

Taken! Lanning goes for the sweep with the pressure building, Veda comes in to take the catch. 

22:59 (IST)17 Nov 2018

Meg Lanning and Ashleigh Gardner in the middle and Australia are in a spot of bother here.

22:26 (IST)17 Nov 2018

Two fours off Beth Money to start things off for Australia. Allyssa Healy is unlikely to play after that collision so there is extra pressure here on Australia.

A wicket for Ellysse Perry off the last ball of the over; Australia need to make 168 to top Group B. 

22:00 (IST)17 Nov 2018
India 159/6 after 19 overs

Big collission between bowler and keeper. Healy and Shchutt go for the same catch after the ball balloons up in the air off the bat of Arundhati Reddy. Shchutt's shoulder has buried into Healy's face and she has to walk off the pitch. 

21:54 (IST)17 Nov 2018
OUT! Smriti Mandhana is dismissed, India 155/6

And that ends a magnificent innings, Mandhana comes down the track and lofts it to long-on, Ellyse Perry takes an easy catch. She had made 83 off 55. 

21:46 (IST)17 Nov 2018
GONE! Hemalatha chopps on

India have a good run rate but they are losing wickets far too frequently at the moment. Hemalatha tries to drag a pull from outside off and ends up playing on.

21:45 (IST)17 Nov 2018
OUT! Veda Krishnamurthy dismissed thanks to a screamer, 131/4

Vlaemick the debutant jumps, plucks the cherry at that split second that she is suspended in the air, neither going up nor down, and then comes back to earth with the ball safely in her hands. That is a catch for the ages. 

21:39 (IST)17 Nov 2018
Mandhana overturns an LBW decision

Mandhana was given out but she went for the review. As it turned out, the ball had pitched outside leg and thus the decision is overturned. 

21:32 (IST)17 Nov 2018
OUT! Harmanpreet Kaur falls

Two consecutive fours to start the over and the third is caught at cover and that is a big wicket for Australia. 

21:24 (IST)17 Nov 2018
India 105/2 in 12 overs

Harmanpreet Kaur is ensuring at least one boundary per over and the one for this over is a gigantic six over long off. "HARD KAUR" screams the jumbotron in the stadium. 50 partnership has also come up between the two best batters India have got. Australia certainly don't want this going any longer. 

21:15 (IST)17 Nov 2018
India 84/2 after 10 overs

Smriti Mandhana reaches her half century with a four, takes a single, Harmanpreet faces a dot and then deposits the next over long off for a six. India are looking very good at the moment. 

21:12 (IST)17 Nov 2018
India 59/2 after 8 overs

Mandhana has moved to 44 and her partner, Harmanpreet Kaur is on 4. Australia will be keen on getting her out when she is not in her Harmanator mode because the last time they played Harmanpreet in a big tournament was during the ODI World Cup last year. That must have been a forgettable experience for them.

India vs Australia Women's T20 Highlights: Here is India’s route to the T20 World Cup semi-final in the West Indies, their first in eight years: Thrashed New Zealand by 34 runs, battered Pakistan by six wickets and smacked Ireland by 52 runs. Except for fleeting suspense against Pakistan, the rest of the victories were achieved without breaking much sweat, which was exactly what their coach Ramesh Powar had demanded before they embarked to the Caribbean Islands.
