Twitter Reacts As Smriti Mandhana Becomes First Indian Woman To Score Century In Pink Ball Test

Smriti Mandhana made history in women’s cricket today as she became the first Indian women’s batter to score a century in the day/night Test cricket world. The left-handed batter accomplished the feat while opening the innings for the Indian women’s cricket team in the Test match against the Australian women’s cricket team at the Carrara Oval.

Hosts Australia won the toss and elected to field first in their maiden day/night Test match against the Indian women’s cricket team. Not many fans would have expected the Indian women’s cricket team to dominate the way it did at the Carrara Oval.

The two batters added 93 runs, with Verma scoring 31 runs off 64 deliveries. She smashed four fours in her knock where she batted at a strike rate of 48.43. Sophie Molineux ultimately ended the partnership in the 26th over of the Indian innings.
