Harmanpreet Kaur finishes it off in style with a boundary. India finish on a good note as 12 runs came off the final over. Harmanpreet Kaur completes her fifty as it was she who shifted the momentum in India’s favour. While Smriti Mandhana was once again the standout performer with her 74-run knock. INDW 167/2 in 20 overs
West Indies have been poor in the fielding department tonight and India took advantage of it. Meanwhile, Smriti Mandhan smashed a magnificent six straight down the ground to stamp her authority over Afy Fletcher. 11 runs came off the over. INDW 155/2 in 19 overs
Though four out of the top five batters, including stand-in captain Smriti Mandhana, fell for single-digit scores, the 76-run partnership between Deepti Sharma and Amanjot Kaur helped India reach a respectable 147 after being 69/5 at one stage.
Amanjot was the star for India in her first international match against South Africa, making a fine 30-ball 41 not out after coming out to bat at number seven. Deepti, on the other hand, was at her all-round best, making a 23-ball 33 and taking 3/30 with her off-spin, with other spinners coming good too.
