Smriti Mandhana expressed herself
“Yastika’s start gave me a lot of confidence, but after we lost three wickets, I had to take a breather. I was also pleased with the way Harry (Harmanpreet) batted, and with the way, the rest of the team performed. We didn’t get off to a good start in the previous game, and we talked about how important it is to maintain momentum. That’s exactly what Yastika did, taking on the bowlers right from the start “. Smriti Mandhana expressed herself in the same way.
Smriti, India’s opening batter, scored 123 runs, while Harmanpreet, who was in excellent form, scored 109 runs. The Women in Blue have earned the greatest score in the World Cup thus far, with a total of 317 runs.
“I would give this knock a slightly better rating”, Smriti said:
“This is one of my top three knocks, if not the most important. After the last game, we really want to come back strong and given the circumstances. I would give this knock a slightly better rating (among her five ODI tons) than the others “. She went on to say more.
