The Indian women’s cricket team will be looking to build on from a good start provided through the batting heroics of opener Smriti Mandhana on Day 1 of the Pink-ball Test at the Metricon Stadium in Queensland in Australia. Mandhana put on a display of exceptional batting class as she paced her innings to perfection throughout the day to end at 84 not out. Along-with Shafali Verma, Mandhana gave a strong start at the start of the innings, which was later taken over by Punam Raut. Raut was holding steady from one end as she ended the day’s play on 18 runs off 75 balls. All Australian bowlers suffered due to inconsistent lines and lengths and only Sophie Molineux found her way through with Verma’s wicket.
