Accolades pour in for India for entering ICC Women's World Cup semis

Lamar Ellis | 16 July, 2017, 01:00

India would be aiming for their maiden World Cup win this time around which has been heavily dominated by Australia and England. Even though the team has world's leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in the same playing XI, the truth is it has struggled to perform as a unit and this one area where Mithali Raj needs to work. At 7 for 2, Katey Martin (12) joined Amy Satterthwaite but the former was dismissed by spinner Deepti Sharma in her first over as New Zealand were reduced to 27/3 in 11th over.

1086 Runs Raj has made in the Women's World Cup - the fifth-highest by any batsman.

Raj made ODI history in Bristol on Wednesday but it was Australia who booked its place in the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament at The County Ground.

Dorance Armstrong voted Big 12 preseason defensive player of the year
The Sooners, last season's conference champion, edged out Oklahoma State for the top spot in the 2017 preseason poll. Coming up Thursday, the Big 12 releases its preseason poll with West Virginia expected to be middle-of-the-pack.

"Congrats Women's Cricket Team for the decisive victory against the NZ".

Riding on Captain Mithali Raj's sixth ODI hundred and Veda Krishnamurthy's quickfire 70 off 45 balls, India posted 265/7 at the end of 50 overs.

India did not start well as they were two-down in the eighth over. We were doing so well, I was happy. Shikha Pandey dented New Zealand up front when she had Suzie Bates (1) caught in the slip. After two impressive knocks in the first two games, she slumped to four consecutive single digit scores which severely impacted India's start. She said, "You can't just give up because you lose one game". The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Punam Raut, among others, have shown their potential over the last couple of years but inconsistency has held them back from reaching the next level. Today, India can boast of a handful of talented women cricketers but for the longest of times, Mithali, nearly alone, carried the weight of the Indian batting on her shoulders.
