It was a power packed performance by Harmanpreet Kaur of 171 from just 115 balls that paved the way for India in to the finals. Having lost openers early up in the innings, its was the innings build by the middle order Harmanpreet Kaur that eased India’s way by setting up a total of 281/4 in rain induced 42 over match.
Harmanpreet’s century was termed as one of the best knocks that was compared to Kapil Dev’s 175 against Zimbabwe during the 1983 World Cup campaign. Hey knock included 20 fours and seven sixes. She remains the second largest scorer for team India behind Deepti Sharma’s 188 against South Africa earlier this year.
