Australian opener Beth Mooney suffered a brainfade during day 3 of the standalone Test against India at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The brain-fade suffered at the crease led to her downfall, throwing away a promising start as India got their first breakthrough of Australia's 2nd innings.

The incident occurred in the 12th over of the innings as Mooney defended a full ball from Sneh Rana to silly point, where Richa Ghosh was stationed. As the left-hander walked out of the crease casually, Ghosh seized the opportunity to hit the stumps at the striker's end to catch Mooney short of the crease. Until that dismissal, Mooney had batted beautifully, hitting 33 off 37 deliveries with 7 boundaries.

Australia wrap up India's innings quickly on the third morning:

After India dominated the first two days to finish with a lead of 157, the visitors wrapped up the innings within 35 minutes of the third morning. Annabel Sutherland broke the massive partnership of 122 between Deepti Sharma and Pooja Vastrakar by dismissing the latter for 47.

A couple of overs later, Kim Garth rearranged Deepti Sharma's stumps, with Sutherland returning to dismiss Renuka Singh to end India's innings at 406. The home side produced a magnificent bowling performance on day 1, dismissing Australia for 219. In reply, India didn't lose a wicket until they had 90 on the board by the opening par.

But the tourists kept at it and managed to get India out for a lead of below 200.
