Women Cricket Team had to succumb to miraculous spell of Shrubsole at her career best of 6/46. Punam Raut took the Indian team to a comfortable position with promising 86 and semifinal player of the tournament Harmanpreet Kaur could fetch 51.
Indian win was almost in the air. Veda Krishnamurthy tried to take the team towards a thumping victory. Then came Shrubsole who shattered all the form and took quick wickets in succession. She wrapped up the match with 6 stunning deliveries.
Twitter flooded with praises on Women’s Team for their best performance and remaining as runners up.
