Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand with a massive 11-4 advantage as we head into the change of sides in the decider. A good seven-point cushion this for the Indians, but remember they will be on the disadvantageous side of the court for the rest of the match.
Can Treesa/Gayatri close this off quickly?

Service error from Treesa
