England captain Heather Knight has described the prospect of entering the field in front of a full stadium at the iconic Lord's in London for the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women's World Cup final as "special".
Her 171* is now the second-highest score by an Indian batsman in women's one-day internationals, behind Deepti Sharma's 188 runs. Did they think this would be possible? "That presentation she and Smriti (Mandhana) got by collaborating with different players has been huge". "But then it also motivated them and changed the complexion of the side.", said Nobody would have given them a chance after their eight-wicket defeat to Australia, but the way they played took everyone by surprise", Edulji said.
The reactions which followed were nothing short of hilarious:Not only this, the former Indian cricketer made another blunder in the commentary box. Alex Blackwell (90) gave India a scare as she played a brilliant innings and brought up her 24th ODI fifty at the dying stages of the Australian innings but it was all too late for the six time World Champions. Mithali along with Jhulan Goswami are the only two players from that edition who are featuring in this World Cup as well.
More than 26,000 people are expected to pack out the Lord's Ground to see England host India in the World Cup final on Sunday. "There's still one game to go and if we put a flawless performance in then, I'll be a very happy captain", Knight said.
Odd as it may seem, suddenly women's cricket, more so the games India have played, have been sold out ones.
India began the tournament ranked fourth but have beaten all the sides ranked above them on the way to the final, including Australia, the six-time champions. Mainly, the blitz from Harmanpreet Kaur and the collective effort from the bowlers secured a spot for India in the finals by thumping Australia by a fair margin of 36 runs at England derby. In only their second ever final, they face hosts England on the most sacrosanct of surfaces, Lord's.
"It's an opportunity for the Indian team to make it big in India", Raj told ESPNCricinfo. "The fearless batting of Harmanpreet Kaur mirrors the team's approach under pressure". India's head-to-head win-loss record against England is not as bad as that the one against Australia.
India's Harmanpreet Kaur, one of the most destructive hitters in the game, a reputation solidified by her heroics in the semi-final.
