GOLD COAST: India declared their first innings at 377 for eight on the third day of the rain-marred women's day/night Test against Australia here on Saturday.

Sharma struck eight boundaries to notch her best Test score, a day after opener Smriti Mandhana grabbed the headline with a magnificent maiden century in the format.
All-rounder Sharma got out shortly after the dinner break.
