Commonwealth Games: Renuka Singh Thakur’s unplayable inswinger to Tahlia McGrath. Renuka Singh Thakur returned with a dream spell against Australia in the Commonwealth Games Group A clash, taking four wickets.
The Indian women’s cricket team lost heartbreakingly to Australia in Group A of the ongoing Commonwealth Games. Renuka Singh Thakur took four wickets in five overs to help India defend to 154, but Ashleigh Gardner held her own to help Australia chase down the target with three wickets in hand and one over to spare. The match, however, will be remember for Renuka Singh Thakur’s spell, which she returned with figures of 4-18.
Thakur knocked out Australia’s batting lineup, also including Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney, and Tahlia McGrath. And the ball used to dismiss Tahlia McGrath was hilarious. Moreover, Renuka’s inswinger a dream come true, as the ball curve in big from outside off and McGrath committed to playing the drive.
