The opening game of the Commonwealth Games was also between the same opponents. It was a highly competitive game that went right down to the wire. India having taken 5 Aussie wickets early looked in the driver’s seat but had the game taken away due to a brilliant partnership between Ash Gardner and Grace Harris.
