The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Friday congratulated the Indian women’s team for reaching the finals of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 after defeating defending champion Australia in the second semifinals at Derby, England.
Harmanpreet Kaur produced one of the greatest ever ODI knocks by any Indian cricketer including men’s team on Thursday to guide India sail into the finals of ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, demolishing Australia by 36 runs.
“We all are proud for the dazzling knock of 171 of 115 balls by Harmanpreet Kaur in women’s World Cup semifinal against the defending champion Australia,” said C K Khanna, Acting President of BCCI.
“I on behalf of BCCI congratulate the Kaur, team captain Mithali and entire team.”
“BCCI will discuss and announce the award to Women’s Cricket Team on their tremendous performance in World Cup. We all look forward to welcoming the team with World Cup 2017,” he added.
It was only the second time that India entered the summit clash of the global event, having lost to Australia in the final of the 2005 edition.
