Smriti Mandhana equals Mithali Raj’s record of most ODI hundreds by an Indian Female Cricketer


Indian Women’s National Cricket Team Vice-Captain Smriti Mandhana brought up her seventh one-day cricket century during the second ODI of the three match series against South Africa on Wednesday. With this century, the 27-year-old equaled Mithali Raj’s record of scoring the most hundreds by an Indian in women’s ODI Cricket.

The Women in Blue entered the second match of the three-game series with a 1-0 lead, having won the first ODI by a big margin of 143 runs. Asked to bat first by South Africa’s Laura Wolvaardt, Mandhana got off to a really slow start with the bat as she took more than 16 deliveries to score her first run of the match. But, after getting off the mark, she soon found the required momentum and played some really fascinating and fearless strokes out there in the middle which helped her to register back-to-back centuries in the three-match One Day International series between India women and South Africa women.

In the previous match of the series, the 27-year-old played an outstanding knock of 117 runs in 127 deliveries. In the second ODI, Mandhana brought up her century in 103 deliveries.

The Indian Vice Captain also became the first female Indian Cricketer to register two continuous hundreds in ODI Cricket and also became the first female Indian batter to score two tons in a One Day International series.
