India Vs. Australia Part 2

The Indian women's cricket team has just defeated New Zealand and made it to the finals of the Women's World Cup.

Apparently, we were struggling at 38 for 2 in the 14th over till the captain Mithali Raj slammed an unbeaten 91 off 104 balls.
Our adversaries in the finals are the Aussies. Once more.

The last time India met Australia at a World Cup Final would of course be the 2003 (men's) World Cup when Australia thoroughly kicked our ass. They first slammed our bowling around the park (359 in 50 overs) and then proceeded on to a 129 run victory. It was traumatizing to watch, to say the least.

I hope the women's team avenges that defeat :-)
