Big hits was my way of battling stomach cramps, says Harmanpreet Kaur

Smriti Mandhana top-scored in the Kia Super League with 421 runs at 60.14 and a strike rate of 174.68 Smriti Mandhana top-scored in the Kia Super League with 421 runs at 60.14 and a strike rate of 174.68

During the course of her innings the 29-year-old became the first Indian woman to score a hundred in a T20 global game but Kaur said she had no clue about the record.

The 29-year-old smashed 103 off 51 balls and her carnage included eight sixes, some of them towering, and seven boundaries.

India start as the overwhelming favourites to beat Pakistan in Sunday's clash, considering their all-round effort against New Zealand.

"Good game but we still have a long way to go". "I was not looking at how many runs I was getting, I was looking at how many we needed to win the game".

Harmanpreet was required to walk into the middle early, at the fall of debutant Dayalan Hemalatha's wicket in only the sixth over.

Harmanpreet got into the mode with two sixes off Jess Watkin in the 10th over, as India reached 76 for the loss of three wickets. Sana Mir is also a very popular choice and if she was to perform, you could lose out on a lot of points if you don't have her in your team. Yet, she managed to hit seven boundaries at a strike rate of 130 plus.

Australia burned by DRS as Proteas breach 15-second window
But as he looked set for a big score, he flicked a Starc delivery down leg side to Carey, leaving South Africa struggling. As Miller began to walk Du Plessis contested the decision as he deliberated with his batsman before signalling for a DRS.

Even before a ball being faced, 10 runs were on India's scoreboard after Pakistan were docked five-run penalty twice during their innings on account of their batswomen running on the danger area of the pitch during their innings.

One of the first names on every Fantasy Cricket team, skipper Harmanpreet Kaur has been brilliant so far. Although she had a pretty disappointing outing against Australia, her wicket-taking ability is proven and will be eager to pick up some in the game against India.

India head into the much-anticipated clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on the back of a thumping win over New Zealand in their Group B opener of the Twenty20 tournament in the Carribean.

However, Bates, who became the highest run-getter in T20 Internationals, could not find support at the other end as New Zealand were reduced to 93 for four in the 13th over. The interesting fact is that both of them have played 5 matches at the World Cup and India won 3 times while the rest 2 occasions were bagged by Pakistan.

Hemalatha and Poonam Yadav finsihed with three wickets apiece for India, and there were two for Radha Yadav.
