In the first one-day match between the Indian Women’s Cricket Team and Australia, Team India won the toss and decided to bat first. However, this decision of Captain Harmanpreet Kaur did not come true and the team started very poorly.
In this match Kangaroo bowlers continued to take wickets at regular intervals. Smriti Mandhana (12), Captain Hamanpreet Kaur (9), Veda Krishnamurthy (16) and Deepti Sharma (18) soon returned to the pavilion. It was a time that Team India could not even reach 150 runs.
Although the Indian batsmen did not give up and the team’s score was up to 200 runs. The 18-year-old Pooja Vastrakar played the key role and named the world record. In this match, Pooja showed up with her bat which no one in the 45-year-old women’s cricket history has ever been able to do.
In fact, Pujya batted with 9th position in this match and scored 51 runs in 56 balls. Prior to that, New Zealand’s Lucy Dulan scored 48 runs against England in 2009, and missed out with just two runs from two runs.
Apart from Pooja in this match, Sushma Verma (41) and Poonam Raut (37) made important contributions. Until the news is written, Australia have chased a target of 201 runs, losing 60 overs to lose 9 overs.
