#WWC17: India Storms Into Final, Will Play England

India Harmanpreet Kaur

Yesss We Are In The Finals! They believed they could, and so they did. Hats off to the Indian women’s cricket team which beat Australia to move to the World Cup final. Incredible batting by Harmanpreet Kaur took India right through. The team is now preparing for its d-day against England.

At the Women’s World Cup semi-final at Derby, the audience on Thursday (July 20) witnessed a fantastic show by Indian women cricketers as the team decisively moved into final of the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup.

Social media got some instant reactions from cricketers.

India put up a solid 281 runs for four in 42 overs in the second semi-final  and won by 36 runs as Australians failed to match that.

Today’s showstopper was India’s  batswoman Harmanpreet Kaur and a massive score of 171 from her bat, not out, in the match. 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 a place of the 5th highest run-scorer in women’s cricket.

A confident team took on 6-time champions Australia in the second semi- final of the ICC Women’s World Cup. India had earlier lost many times against Australia, reportedly 34 out of 42 games. But this was some feat as Mithali Raj-led Indian team made history in the tournament by taking down a strong team in yellow.

Now that India goes to the final, they will face off England in a fight on Sunday 23 July.
