For the final leg of Australian women's extensive tour of India, the two heavy-weight nations clashed in the first T20 of the three-game series at Mumbai's DY Patil Stadium earlier today.

Captain Harmanpreet Kaur won the coin flip contest to invite the Aussies to bat first. Interestingly, Kaur opted to field a young side for the uphill contest as she feels the bench strength could use the exposure.

Amongst the rookie group was a 19-year-old medium pacer, Titas Sadhu. She debuted earlier this year as a promising young talent. However, in a scintillating display of skill and fire, Sadhu left an indelible mark as she dismantled the Australian top order.

Making her presence felt from the outset, Titas Sadhu breathed fire with the ball, delivering a spellbinding performance that left the Australian top order in disarray. She drew first blood by removing opener Beth Mooney in the fourth over of the powerplay. 

While Mooney's wicket was massive, Sadhu's domineering night had just begun. In the very next over of her spell, Titas Sadhu picked two back-to-back wickets to demolish the Aussie top order. 

She deceived veteran Tahila McGrath with a fuller delivery on the off-stump line. McGrath mistimed her shot attempt and ended up getting a top edge, which flew straight to Pooja Vastrakar, who took a tumbling catch at third man.

In the very next moment, Sadhu bowled a fuller-length delivery to Ashleigh Gardner on the middle-stump length. Gardner was late to react and ended up playing straight to Titas as she secured her third wicket of the day.

Titas Sadhu's dual blow triggered a collapse as Australia was four down by the end of the powerplay.

Having said that, the Indian side capitalized on the momentum after the powerplay as the bowlers produced wickets at regular intervals, thus denying the Aussies a chance of a comeback.

Eventually, the Australian women were bowled out in the final over but still managed to put a total of 141 runs on the board, which seems a respectable total on this wicket.
