Chandigarh: Moments after their daughter's scintillating knock propelled the Indian women's cricket team to the final of the ICC Women's World Cup, parents of Harmanpreet Kaur spoke to News18 India and expressed their joy.

Harmanpreet Kaur's father recollected her journey to being a top class cricketer and also mentioned all the sacrifices she has had to make to reach that level.

"I would tell her to play hard and fight hard to make the country proud. Whenever I talk to her, she says she will come back with the World Cup." her father Harmander Singh Bhullar said.

Her mother recounted the long hours of practice Harmanpreet put in when she was a child.

Harmanpreet Kaur produced one of greatest ever ODI knocks in women's cricket, as India stormed into the ICC World Cup final, demolishing Australia by 36 runs in the semi-final, here on Thursday.

The Indian vice-captain smashed her way to a career-best magical 171* off 115 balls, leaving the Australian bowlers in a daze as India put up an imposing 281 for 4 after rain reduced the match to 42-overs a side.
