India vs New Zealand female T20I: Smriti Mandhana has brought the Indian line against New Zealand again.
India vs New Zealand female T20I: Smriti Mandhana played another superb inning when he hit 86 run off only 62 balls against New Zealand in the third and last female T20I match. This was Smriti Mandhana's highest score in T20I cricket which surpassed her 83 against Australia in 2018. She was unlucky to lose a century as she was captured by Lea Tahuhu's Sophie Devine bowling.
Twitter was full of applause for the Mandhana inning with some thanking them for making their Sunday better.
We can choose Smriti Mandhana for the men's WC team, please

However, despite his heroes, India lost the game while the White Ferns completed a clean 3-0. It was another thriller that went down to the last ball. India fought to the end but failed to break the line. With 4 needed from the last ball, Mithali Raj failed to get more than a single while India lost the game by 2 points.
