The Indian women’s cricket team beat Australia by 48 runs in the Group B tie. Smriti Mandhana played a vital role by smashing 83 runs from 55 balls, hitting nine fours and three maximums. Harmanpreet Kaur also made 43 runs from 27 balls hitting three sixes and fours. With this win against Australia, team India has so far remained unbeaten in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2018 and will play England or West Indies in the semi-finals. Australia, who had already qualified for the semi did not have a very good outing against India. But, Tayla Vlaeminck produced the moment of her life despite going wicketless.Mithali Raj Leaves Behind Rohit Sharma to Become the Highest Run-Scorer in T20I Format for India
The 27-year old Vlaeminck took a one-handed catch to dismiss Veda Krishnamurthy for the paltry score of three. She was fielding at the backward square-leg as Veda pulled the short ball, but could not get the middle of the bat. Even the official account of the ICC World T20, shared the clip of the Tayla’s cath on their social media pages.

Talking about the game, Smriti Mandhana obviously walked away with the Player of the Match award. After the match during the presentation ceremony, Smriti said, “First three matches I got starts but couldn't convert it. So I just wanted to score big today," she says. "Veda insisted on the review, and thanks to her we got 20-30 runs extra. The way we bowled and fielded today was the best of the four games, but batting-wise the performance against New Zealand was better, she further added.
