2017 edition of Womens World Cup completed after the thrilling final between India Vs England. I choose some of the impact performer’s of this WWC. There is very much confusion for number 1 and choices were inning’s of Harmanpreet Kaur against mighty Australia and bowling of Shrubsole to give England the world cup. The importance of Harmanpreet inning’s in the women’c cricket gave that inning more favor, also this inning’s from Harmanpreet is considered as best ODI inning’s in women’s cricket. You may not be agree with me so tell me your List.
1) HARMANPREET KAUR 171(115) Vs Australia in Semifinals
This is regarded as the one of the best inning’s in cricket ever. she came into the crease at tricky situation of 35-2, she not only have to score runs but also have to stabilise the innning’s with the experienced indian captain Mitali Raj. She start cautiously and make 50 in balls, afterword’s from there she shifted her gears. While facing the spinner she always trying to hit every ball for boundary with step out. and she succeed in that. She scored last 131 runs of only 55 balls of her innings. Target of 281 due to Harmanpreet storm as always out of reach of Aussies, eventually India win the match and entered into final.
2) ANYA SHRUBSOLE 6-46 Vs INDIA
India cruising to word’s the maiden world cup title and just 38 runs away from making the history. All is going well for India and Indians starting to smell the victory but the nothing is taken for granted in the game until last ball bowled. Captain gave bowl to Shrubsole who got rid of Mandana in her early spell, she bowl on the pad of well settled Poonam rout and she missed the ball (or missed the world cup) and hit on the pad … appealed for leg before … umpire gave decision in favor of bowler … that’s the moment when panic hits India. Then she got rid of dangerous Veda Krishnamurti who looks vulnerable while batting. so she got six wickets and literally snatch the world cup from India
3) DANE VAN NIEKERK 0-4 Vs West Indies
Taking four wicket’s without giving a single run is almost impossible in the international cricket matches, but Dane done it and gave sauth africa easy victory over West indies
4) CHAMARI ATAPATTU 178(143) Vs Australia
Though 178 of Atapattu came in losing cause, it came against mighty aussies and when all other mates not even able to hold there wickets made it more special. This is 3rd highest score in women’s cricket and Most in Women’s world cup.
5) SMRITI MANDANA 90(72) Vs England
This inning’s of 90 from Smriti Gave India dream start to the WWC. She literally hammered the quality English attack and put pressure on English bowler’s. This makes easy for the other bats woman to take own time and put big score on board, which is happened and 282 turnout to be too much for England. India win the match and start the world’s cup on positive note.
6)VEDA KRISHNAMURTI 70(45) Vs New Zealand
May be few raising eyebrows, because in same match Mitali Raj scored century and played outstanding inning’s but the end over hitting by Veda Krusnamurti took Indias score to 269 which proves out of reach for kivies in virtual quarter finale of world cup.
7) EKTA BISHT 5-18 VS Pakistan
India VS Pakistan match is always high voltage drama.. high pressure match… performer of the match shines more than the other good performances.. same is with EKTA BISHT. While batting first India made only 179, now it’s on the bowler to took India through. so Ekta Bisht gave India perfect start with taking 2 wicket’s in her first over, that gave Pakistan such a blows from which Pakistan never recovered and lost the match.
