After their 7-run victory in the previous game, Australia Women have taken an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series. With the exception of the second match, Australia has dominated the hosts on this tour. In this game, the Indians will look to put their act together and defeat the world champions.

Harmanpreet Kaur’s team has performed admirably, but they have yet to match the Australians in this series. Their bowlers have been put under strain as the Australians have milked the bowling in every game. The Indian captain wants her bowlers to put on a better performance in this contest and win it to reclaim lost pride.
Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana have performed admirably at the top. In this game, the team will need to get off to a good start. Jemimah Rodrigues must outperform Kaur and Devika Vaidya in the middle order. Deepti Sharma, Richa Ghosh, and Harleen Deol add depth to the batting lineup and will look to score runs quickly.
In this series, India’s bowling attack has been annihilated. With the new ball, the team will need strong spells from Anjali Sarvani and Renuka Singh. Deepti Sharma and Radha Yadav must perform admirably in the middle overs. Kaur, Vaidya, and Shafali Verma would also benefit from good spells.
Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana (vc), Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Renuka Singh Thakur, Meghna Singh, Anjali Sarvani, Devika Vaidya, S. Meghana, Richa Ghosh, Harleen Deol

Alyssa Healy would be pleased with her team’s performance on this tour. They were the favourites and have lived up to their billing. Their bowlers have put on an excellent performance, not allowing the Indians to settle down. Healy hopes to capitalise on this momentum and win the series 4-1.
Beth Mooney has scored runs, and the team would like to see her and Alyssa Healy get off to a good start. The middle order has the firepower, and Ellyse Perry, Tahlia McGrath, and Ashleigh Gardner are expected to score runs. Down the order, Grace Harris and Annabel Sutherland add to the side’s batting strength.
Their bowlers have struggled on these flat surfaces, and the team would benefit from early wickets from Darcie Brown and Megan Schutt. Gardner, Perry, and Alana King will try to limit the scoring rate in the middle overs. Sutherland and Heather Graham round out the attack.

India Women vs Australia Women Toss Prediction
This series has produced high-scoring contests. The wicket is flat, making it difficult for teams to set scores. Most teams have won here by chasing scores. In this game, the team that wins the toss will bowl first.
India Women vs Australia Women Pitch Report
Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium has an excellent batting surface and a quick outfield. The bounce on this track is consistent, allowing batters to play on the rise. Because the wicket lacks lateral movement, it is a difficult venue for fast bowlers. Spinners have done well because the dry surface allows them to turn the ball sharply.
We anticipate a pleasant evening in Mumbai on December 12, with favourable conditions for batting. The wicket would be flat, and the ball would land nicely on the bat. Previous games here have seen bowlers struggle. In this game, a score of 180 or higher is required for the team batting first.
