Smriti Madhana turned out to be quite a vital member of the team after she scored a blistering knock of 83 runs from 55 balls. His innings came from nine fours and three sixes. She walked away with the Player of the Match Award. After winning the toss, India elected to bat and lost the opener, Taniya Bhatia, quite early and then Mandhana took the responsibility. The Indian team won the game by 48 runs and thus qualified for the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket T20 World Cup 2018. The team will now face England or West Indies in the next round. But it was Smiriti Mandhana who earned all the praises as her inning impressed Virender Sehwag who posted a tweet hailing the same.

Virender Sehwag took to Twitter and posted a tweet and wrote, “Aanand de diya aap logon ne. What a wonderful exhibition from @mandhana_smriti with the bat and an outstanding performance by the bowlers to make it 4 wins out of 4 for our girls. 2 more steps to go, 1 at a time. Go Girls, best wishes @BCCIWomen.”

Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur contributed 68 runs on the total. After the match, Smriti Mandhana said, “First three matches I got starts but couldn't convert it. So I just wanted to score big today," she says. "Veda insisted on the review, and thanks to her we got 20-30 runs extra. The way we bowled and fielded today was the best of the four games, but batting-wise the performance against New Zealand was better.”.Mithali Raj Leaves Behind Rohit Sharma to Become the Highest Run-Scorer in T20I Format for India
