Cheer out loud for the Indian women’s cricket team as they knocked down Australia to move to the ICC Women’s World Cup final. There was incredible batting by Harmanpreet Kaur – the showstopper of the match — who scored a massive 171 not out.

The cricketer led India to a strong score 281/4, picking 100 off 90 balls and 171 off just 115 balls. She slammed her 3rd ODI hundred and also secured the place of the 5th highest run-scorer in women’s cricket. The team is now preparing for its final battle against England.

When the entire nation is in celebration mode, applauding the cricketer’s swag, her mother has made an important appeal. She appreciated the love is given to her daughter, but also asked the nation to empower their daughters.

Expressing happiness over her daughter’s achievement, Kaur’s mother said that her game calls for full-house audience as the match stars on television and the entire family enjoys the show.

“I just want to say to other women that the way my daughter has made us proud, they should also give their daughters a chance to live their dream and shouldn’t kill them in the womb,” Kaur’s mother told ANI.

She admires Harmanpreet’s father’s dedication towards her cricketing dream, which led her to win hearts. Her achievement is the result of the support she got from him as he was the one to take her to the grounds for practice when she was a kid, Kaur’s mother emphasised.

Harmanpreet Kaur’s father said, “I just wish the Indian women team all the luck. I hope Harmanpreet keeps playing the way she has been and brings the World Cup to India and makes the nation proud.”

Listening to the proud parents, we are certain that empowerment happens when a person has the family’s support. If the country needs to develop, unbiased thinking and believing in your daughter or son is of utmost importance.
