Australia beat McLanning’s team by two wickets in the third ODI on Sunday to win 26 of the Australian women’s world record ODIs.
After half-centuries from Shafali Verma and Yastika Patia, India maintained their tension to win with three balls to spare.
Julan Goswami, 38, also played for India, taking three wickets and capturing victory with a four in the final over.
“Credit to India. I thought they came out well with the ball and fought with the bat, so they deserved to win, ”Lanning said.
Half-centuries by Ashley Gardner and Beth Mooney led Australia to an incredible run but many missed catches and run-outs failed to defend their target, the first defeat since October 2017.
India captain Mithali Raj lauded her team’s batting effort, which saw the late cameo of Deepti Sharma and Sneha Rana. “We are very happy. I told the women, Australia’s victory against India started in India, so now, we are the ones who broke that fort,” he added.
“It’s good to have a little depth in the batting line-up.”
After winning the first two of three ODIs, Australia are leading 4-2 in the multi-format series.
Both teams will next play a day-night Test on the Gold Coast starting on September 30 before ending the series with three Twenty20 internationals from Oct. 7.
