Harmanpreet Slams Record Ton, Twitter Celebrates With Gusto

Harmanpreet Kaur slammed the highest individual score by an Indian in Women's World Cup in the semi-final against Australia and her historic feat was celebrated with a lot of pomp by the cricket fraternity on Twitter.

Leading the charge was former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, who was watching Harmanpreet's heroics from close range, being part of ICC's commentary panel for the tournament.

Even Sachin Tendulkar could not keep himself from lauding the 28-year-old hard-hitter. When the 'God' himself brands your knock as incredible, you know you have done something out of this world.

Former India opener and another cricket pundit Aakash Chopra went even further as he showered praise on the middle-order batsman, calling her knock the best by an Indian in a World Cup knock out game, including men's cricket.

Indian men's team's head coach Ravi Shastri was also quick to take to twitter and congratulate the Punjab girl for her power-packed show.

Skipper Virat Kohli too joined the bandwagon and lauded Harmanpreet for her record-breaking knock.

Virender Sehwag brought in his trademark style into congratulating Harmanpreet for her colossal effort, and declared himself to be a fan of the batsman.

The International Cricket Council and Cricket Australia also joined in to congratulate the Indian on her great feat.
