Good luck trying to name any national sporting team on the planet as red-hot as the Australian women’s cricket team right now
The Aussies did it again on Monday morning (AEST) in the Commonwealth Games final when they showed extreme class in the nail-biting final overs to defeat India by 17 runs.
The win gives Australia a never-before-seen trifecta as ODI world champions, T20 world champions and Commonwealth Games gold medallists.
The drama at the death was almost matched by the drama at the start of the day’s play as it was revealed following the toss of the coin that Aussie allrounder Tahlia McGrath had tested positive for Covid-19 the morning of the match. Despite the test, McGrath was allowed to play, with the full support of the ICC, the Australian Commonwealth Games team and the Commonwealth Games Federation.
