General News BCCI Set to Reward Mithali and Co. For World Cup Performance
#1

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has promised a reward for the women’s cricket team who have made the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup.

India booked their place in the final by beating the defending and six-time champions Australia by 36 runs in the semi-final in Derby on Thursday. The Mithali Raj-led team will face England in the final – to be played at Lord’s on Sunday.

“BCCI will give reward to Women’s Cricket Team on their tremendous performance in World Cup. Match by match Indian team is performing so well now, we are proud of them particularly the knock played by Harmanpreet Kaur,” said BCCI acting president CK Khanna to news agency ANI.

Harmanpreet Kaur produced one of greatest ever ODI knocks in women's cricket as India stormed into the ICC World Cup final, demolishing Australia in semi-final, here on Thursday.

It is only the second time that India have entered the summit clash of the global event, having lost to Australia in the final of the 2005 edition.

Skipper Mithali Raj and senior pacer Jhulan Goswami were part of the Indian team which had lost then in Centurion.

The 'Women In Blue' will meet hosts England in the final at the Lord's on Sunday.

Indian vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur smashed her way to a career-best magical 171* off 115 balls, leaving the Australian bowlers in a daze as India put up an imposing 281 for 4 after rain reduced the match to 42-overs a side.

This was India's highest ever total against the Southern Stars and proved to be match-winning even as Alex Blackwell's power-packed 90 took them to 245 in 40.1 overs.

The day belonged to Harmanpreet as her innings could well be termed as one which will be remembered for years to come. It drew comparisons with Kapil Dev's historic 175 against Zimbabwe at Tunbridge Wells during the 1983 campaign with members of the men's team, including skipper Virat Kohli, showering accolades on her.

Harmanpreet's third ODI century was embellished with 20 fours and as many as seven sixes.

It was also the second highest individual score in ODIs for India behind Deepti Sharma's unbeaten 188 against South Africa earlier this year.
