Smriti Mandhana scored her first Test hundred in the ongoing Day-Night Test between Indian women and Australian women in Carrara. She also became the first Indian women cricketer to score a ton in Australia.
Apart from appreciation from fans and big names in the Indian cricket fraternity, Mandhana was praised by her teammate Harleen Kaur Deol. Harleen dedicated a song for the Indian opener while sharing a picture after her century.
"Alexa please play: "oh haseena zulfo vali!!!" @mandhana_smriti," wrote Harleen while posting the picture. Mandhana responded to the post and jokingly replied, "Alexa please put @imharleenDeol on mute."
Mandhana broke multiple records in her knock which put India in a better position during their first-ever pink-ball Test match. Her knock of 127 runs is the highest women's Test score against Australia in their backyard.
The southpaw also became only the fourth women’s player and the first Indian woman to score a century in both ODIs and Test formats.
