Senior opener Rohit Sharma and former cricketer Virender Sehwag lauded Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur after her brilliant monstrous innings in the opening match of ICC Women’s World Cup 2018.

“What a start to women’s t20 cricket World Cup.Brilliant batting by @JemiRodrigues to keep things calm in the middle & supporting @ImHarmanpreet who played an unbelievable knock to become 1st Indian women to score t20 hundred 👏👏.I’m sure bowlers can pull things off from here👊,” wrote Rohit Sharma after the conclusion of India’s innings.

 

 

“Harmanpreet Kaur , wonderful hundred. Great bat swing in a really zordaar innings,” Virender Sehwag wrote on Twitter.

 

Riding on Harmanpreet Kaur’s breathtaking hundred, India scored 194 runs for the loss of five wickets. Following a mammoth total, New Zealand managed to score just 160 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 20 overs as India registered a comprehensive 34-run win over the much-fancied Blackcaps.

During her 103 runs knock, Harmanpreet Kaur smashed eight massive sixes and seven boundaries. The 29-year-old also scripted history by becoming the only Indian to score a T20. Harman’s century was also the third fastest hundred in the history of women’s cricket.
