The Indian Women’s Cricket Team has made a banging entry in the World Cup. The World Cup is to be played in New Zealand from March 4. The Indian team has made a great comeback after losing the ODI series against New Zealand before the World Cup. India has won both the practice matches. In the second warm-up match, India beat West Indies by 81 runs. Earlier, they had defeated South Africa by 2 runs.

Batting first, India scored 258 runs in the second warm-up match. Chasing the target, the West Indies team could only score 177 runs for the loss of 9 wickets.

Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma hit fifty
Opener Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma made fifty for the Indian team, who came to bat first. Smriti scored 66 runs in 67 balls with the help of seven fours, while Deepti scored 51 runs with the help of one four. There was a partnership of 117 runs between the two. In the first warm-up match played against South Africa, Smriti had to leave the batting midway due to being hit on the head. In such a situation, his brilliant batting in the second warm-up match was a relief to the Indian team.

Apart from Deepti and Smriti, Yastika Bhatia scored 42 runs and skipper Mithali Raj scored 30 runs while batting at number four.
