New Delhi: Veteran batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly have not been able to achieve the feat performed by Smriti Mandhana on the second day of the ongoing historic day-night Test between India and Australia women's cricket team. She has scored the best century against Australia. This is the first century of Mandhana's Test career. She has scored this century off 170 balls with the help of 18 fours and a six. Mandhana completed her century with a boundary.
Mandhana has become the second cricketer to score a century in the Pink Ball Test for India after Team India captain Virat Kohli. Mentions that Kohli scored 136 against Bangladesh in the Kolkata Test in 2019. On the first day of the Test against Australia, Mandhana batted brilliantly to complete his fifty off just 51 balls with the help of 11 fours. Mandhana hit four fours in the same over from Darcie Brown. Mandhana shared a 93-run stand with Shefali Verma for the first wicket. Shefali was caught by Tahlia McGrath off Sophie Molineux ball for 31.
Mandhana, who made her debut at the age of just 18, also scored a half-century in her debut Test match. He did it against England in 2014. After 7 years of this Test, the Indian women's team played cricket with the red ball in England. The match was played three months ago at bristol ground in England in which Mandhana scored a brilliant 78. And the match was drawn.
