Deepti Sharma says, "We will try to break Australia's unbeaten run soon."

On Monday, Ace off-spinner Deepti Sharma backed India Women to end the winning streak of Australia against them at home ‘as soon as possible' after losing nine consecutive ODIs, including two games in the ongoing series. Australia clinched a narrow three-run win in the second ODI here at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The last time India beat the Aussies at home was in Chennai on February 23, 2007.

Before India's training session, Deepti told the media, “Look, winning and losing is a part of the game, but we have improved as a team, be it as a bowling unit or batting. We will try to break their winning streak as soon as possible.”

She added, “There have been a lot of improvements. Earlier, whenever we would play against Australia, the games never used to go that close. This is one positive (from the last match) that we are able to take it till the end.”
