hoped to win
After Team India’s spectacular win, Smriti Mandhana said, roles have to be changed in such matches. Deepti’s over in the middle was crucial. Rana was bowling amazingly with only three fielders in the deep. This victory will be remembered for a long time. I was trying to miss the last balls and hoped we would cross the line.
A quick & fiery half-century 🔥

Was batting well in the last 2-3 weeks
Mandhana further said, more than my fielding, I was expecting to get out of line this time. I was batting well in the last 2-3 weeks. It was like I was 2-3 years ago. I am happy to have received this touch and look forward to doing the same in the finals. This is an astonishing victory.
