Mithali Raj's father hopes India to clinch title

Parmenio Sano | 23 Luglio, 2017, 18:57

Kaur blazed an unbeaten 171 from 115 balls - including
seven sixes - from No 4 to compile the highest score by a woman in knock-out stages of a World Cup.

"We don't play at Lord's that often but when I last played here, the slope wasn't really in my mind", said Raj. "That presentation she and Smriti (Mandhana) got by collaborating with different players has been huge".

"May be not the way they do in a men's game, but I am sure that we will have some TV viewership", Mithali said here Saturday.

India, skippered by Mithali Raj, are chasing their first World Cup title and are known for their strong batting lineup, but it is their spin bowling trio that has wreaked the most havoc during the tournament.

It's the only defeat Knight's side have tasted in a campaign that has seen them reel off seven successive wins including a three-run nailbiter against Meg Lanning's defending champions.

This will be the India captain's last ICC World Cup and she is determined to make it extremely hard for England to earn their third tournament success on home soil.


Kaur's sensational hitting in Thursday's second semi-final at Derby sent Australia packing with a 36-run loss and set the alarm bells ringing for the hosts, who are eyeing their fourth World Cup triumph. The victory against Australia means that the girls are peaking at just the right time in the tournament, with captain Mithali Raj on a roll as she always is.

"We knew that there is a new generation of young players who play it like a modern game", he told AFP.

Her performances have been all the more impressive given Taylor spent 12 months out of the game with anxiety issues. A massive victory over the White Ferns and India sailed into the semi-final round.

"On behalf of the whole Indian team and the support staff, all the way from Sri Lanka, we want to wish "All the best", said Kohli along with the entire team.

As both India and the hosts, England, prepare for the big final, the leading run-scorer in women's one-day cricket called for freedom in their game. She adds vast value to the team & her game has changed the course of many matches. "I live eight miles down the road so it nearly feels like a second home for me, I spend so much time here", she added.

Harmanpreet undoubtedly turned out to be the 'Wonder Woman' in the ICC World Cup. England need to play New Zealand more, Australia more, South Africa more.
