Girl power as India hails World Cup heroines

22 July 2017, 10:27 | Dan Bryan

But one can't discount India's recent run in the tournament.

Harmanpreet Kaur produced one of greatest ever ODI knocks in women's cricket as India stormed into the ICC World Cup final, demolishing Australia in semi-final on Thursday. She has also scored 202 runs at crucial moments.

Sciver says she hopes to handle the growing expectations that have come with her success in Sunday's final. But, Thursday's unbeaten 171 in the semi-final is probably a sign of her peaking at the right time. It's been unbelievable to see the way you all have played in this World Cup so far, and we all have been watching keenly and enjoying the display of cricket and the display of belief as a team and some brilliant individual performances also. They've been the legends of the game. We have a new woman of the match to stand up and perform for the team.

Harmanpreet batted like never before and totally ripped apart the Australian bowling attack, which is said to be the best in the world. When the score reached 35, Poonam Raut was dismissed for 14. "It has been brilliant to be a part of, and also for the talent of the girls which will be on show".

"It was a massive carrot going into the semi-final and lucky we had the wise head of Jenny Gunn to get over the line, so we're delighted", explained Knight, looking to lead England to a fourth World Cup title and first since 2009.

He said, "This is the second time after 2005 that we've got a chance to play in the World Cup final".

England take on dark horses India at the Home of Cricket where a sell-out crowd of more than 26,500 are expected. They have a second shot at the kind of ending all sportspeople dream of. Everybody has emphasised that we need to win an ICC tournament, so this is the stage and this is the platform.

The Indian captain seemed unflustered amidst all the pressure, sharing a laugh with Harmanpreet Kaur, the hero of India's win against Australia, during a net-session a day before the clash.

Raj's 61-ball sluggish innings was ended by Kristen Beams (1-49) while Kaur completed a 64-ball fifty. "We couldn't stop her. Congratulations to India", Lanning said.

"Whether the viewing figures are the same, or if it gets the same following is a different issue, but we could have that standing as a spectator sport".

"We knew the surroundings really well".

"Prize money is 10 times what it was and we've had every ball being televised".
