Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The caravan of India Women A tour of Australia rolls on and in a bid to seal the three-match series, the Women in Blue will lock horns with their Australian counterparts in the second One-day on Saturday. The first One-day at the Allan Border Field witnessed the Indian batting at its absolute best. 15-year-old Shafali Verma, who turned heads in the recently concluded tour of the West Indies, once again displayed her precocious talent, courtsey a swashbuckling 78-ball 124- an innings which included 19 fours and four sixes.
Verma was ably supported by skipper Veda Krishnamurthy, who scored an equally whirlwind 99-ball 113 to steer India A to an impressive 9-312 in 50 overs. As for the Australians, Tahila McGrath [3-48] and Belinda Vakarewa [2-50] were the pick of the bowlers alongside Heather Graham [2-55].
Chasing 313, skipper Tahila McGrath did what she had done the ball- spearhead the batting unit with a 90-ball 97. But leg-spinner Devika Vaidya [4-55] was too handle for the Aussie batswomen as no one barring Annabel Sutherland  could give McGrath any substantial support, eventually finishing with 9-296 after 50 overs.
It is expected to be an overcast day in Brisbane on Saturday. According to the weather report, the temperatures will hover between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be around 63% and there is a 10 per cent chance of precipitation.
Close to 600 runs were scored in the previous game but with the weather expected to be overcast, the fast bowlers could come into play in the second One-day.
