In Numbers: Smriti Mandhana is India’s Overseas Trump Card

The Indian women’s cricket team clinched the ODI series against New Zealand with a match to spare with Smriti Mandhana once again starring with an unbeaten 90 at the Bay Oval in Tauranga.

And it’s not just the case when compared to the rest of the Indian batters as she tops the charts with the best batting average, ahead of the likes of Karen Rolton, Meg Lanning and compatriot Mithali Raj.



Mandhana, who has played only 14 ODI innings outside India, also has a knack of playing some big knocks for her team and has scored at least 50 runs in 10 of her innings.


The opening bat, who is the only Indian woman to score four centuries in successive calendar years, is also the second on the list of most centurions amongst Indians. Mandhana is second only to Mithali Raj who has three tons more to her name.


Mandhana, who also holds the record for having taken the most number of innings’ to get her first duck (31) amongst Indians.
