Wrist spinner Poonam Yadav returned with a four-wicket haul as India outwitted Australia by 17 runs in the opening match to make a resounding start to the Women’s T20 World Cup in Sydney on Friday. After a solid bowling effort restricted India to 4-132 from its 20 overs, Australia saw star opener Alyssa Healy return to form and kick off the run chase with a stylish 51 off 35. Then Yadav arrived. However, Indian spinners led by Poonam triggered a collapse as Australia suddenly slipped to 82 for six. Poonam (4/19) snapped four wickets, two in successive deliveries of the 12th over to break the backbone of Australia’s chase. India beat defending champions Australia by 17 runs.
