The FIBA Women’s World Cup Mali vs Australia match will be held on September 23, 6:00 PM (International Time) and September 23, 1:30 AM (Indian Time).
The match is Mali vs Australia. In other first World Cup matches, Canada and Serbia, Australia’s Group B adversaries, engaged in a close contest, providing a preview of things to come for the Opals. Despite having to fight hard, the Canadians defeated Serbia 67-60 thanks to center Kayla Alexander’s 13 points. The Serbians still appear to be a formidable team, especially if they can miss their shots, despite having had their chances.
The Opals play Serbia on Sunday at 6 p.m. (AEST), followed by a match against Canada on Monday at 8.30 p.m. (AEST). Japan, who is arguably Australia’s biggest threat in Group B, sprinted to a convincing 89-56 victory over Mali. Aika Hirashita, a shooting guard, led the Japanese team with 17 points, making them look incredibly strong. Australia will likely have no trouble defeating Mali on Friday at 8.30 p.m. (AEST), but their last Group B pool match against the Japanese on Tuesday at 8.30 p.m. will present them with a more difficult challenge (AEST).
Following a commanding 87-72 victory over Belgium, Team USA is off to a good start in its bid to win the World Cup for the fourth time in a row. The show’s star was Captain Breanna Stewart, who had earlier stated that the Americans were hoping to win a gold medal for Brittney Griner, a teammate who is currently being held in a Russian jail on drug possession charges. In addition to her game-high 22 points, Stewart also had four rebounds and three assists. The two-time WNBA champion is regarded as the best player in the world, and it was evident why after her outstanding display against Belgium.
