Harmanpreet ton propels India to 194/5

From bunk beds to five stars Jhulan Goswami reflects on evolution of women's cricket

For me personally, I didn't get really good scores, but one match, Harmanpreet and I didn't score a single run and we got 170.

The skipper of the Women in Blue became the first woman from the country to score a century in the shortest format of the game.

103 runs from Harmanpreet and a 45-ball 59 from Jemimah Rodrigues helped India post 194 on the board and they restricted New Zealand to 160 for 9 after that.

On a good pitch, New Zealand looked as though they were going to power to a record-breaking win as Bates found the boundary ropes easily early on. The spin department, led by leggie Poonam Yadav, is India's strength while the pace department lacks experience after the retirement of veteran Jhulan Goswami. There are a lot of areas we need to improve. I knew if I settle down, I can go for my shots. But a stunning victory this from India and credit goes to Harmanpreet Kaur here. When you are hitting well, you need someone who can rotate the strike. She (Jemimah Rodrigues) likes to express herself and never takes pressure. That was brilliant. "The bowlers too have improved massively in last three months, they are clear with their plans". She now has the most number of sixes for India in a T20 innings, beating her own record of five against Sri Lanka.

Kaur's knock has certainly given the much-needed thrust to the Indian team, who have not been able to win the World T20 in five previous attempts. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and recently-appointed coach Ramesh Powar insist that the team has learnt from that final loss and the presence of youngsters, including six World Cup debutants, makes the squad "fearless".

Jeet se shuruaat. Diwali Dhamaka by Harmanpreet Kaur and a very comfortable victory for India in their opening match of the World T20.

"Winning and losing is part of the game". Coach Powar, a former India off-spinner, has high expectations from his team.

"When Ramesh Sir joined us, a lot changed and we are really happy to have him in the team".

Opener Suzie Bates (67 off 50) got them off to a flyer but too many wickets fell at the other end with key players Sophie Devine (9) and captain Amy Satterthwaite (3) missing out.

"When initially I was running twos, I got a little cramp, after that the physio gave me medicine, and a little bit it settled down", she said.
