Harmanpreet Kaur‘s scintillating 115-ball unbeaten 171 against Australia in the semi-final of the 2017 Women’s World Cup was one of those innings that will go down in history as one of the best ever.
The Indian all-rounder made otherwise ‘world-class’ Aussie bowlers look helpless as she continued to humiliate them by knocking boundary after boundary. The 36-run victory on Thursday helped India book a spot in the finals, where they will face hosts England.
After Indian skipper Mithali Raj elected to bat first on winning the toss in a rain-shortened 42-overs-a-side semi-final at the County Ground, Kaur hammered her third One-day International ton, filled with 20 fours and seven massive sixes, to set a daunting 282-run target for the opponents to chase.
Australian Women tried their best in their batting with Blackwell scoring 90 and Villaini 75 but was all out on 245 runs at 41.1 overs.
India will face the mighty England on Sunday at London, and we are prepared for it. I wish our Womens team Luck and give their best in finals and make India Proud 💜
