Indian Cricket Women Team once again proved that when time gets tough, tougher get moving and that is what they did when playing the semifinal match against Australia in the World Cup. The Team won the toss and the captain Mithali Raj decided to bat first in a match which was reduced to rain-shortened 42-overs-a-side semi-final which was played at the County Ground.
All-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur’s gave explosive performance with the bat and went on to make 115-ball unbeaten 171. In doing so scored her third One-day International ton, in which she went on to hit 20 fours and seven massive sixes, to set a fighting 282-run target.
It was time for Women in Blue bowlers to shine and they didn’t disappoint as they did disciplined bowling. In the end they outsmarted the Aussie and won the match by 36 runs. Also with this win they booked their place in the final and will play against hosts England in Sunday’s Women’s World Cup final at The Lord’s in London.
Post the win on social media erupted with joy as wishes poured in from all quarters. Here we mention few of them :-
