Indian women’s cricket team opener Smriti Mandhana added another milestone to her cap in her international career on Friday when she scored a century on Day 2 of the pink-ball Test against Australia in Queensland to put the visitors in a strong position.
Mandhana, who resumed with a score of 80 not out, brought up her maiden Test century with a boundary. She became the first Indian woman to score a century on Australian soil. She was eventually dismissed for 127 and the Indian women’s team ended the second day at 276/5 at stumps.
Soon after her achievement, she started trending on Social Media and among all one of the best was of fellow Indian cricket Harleen Kaur Deol. While many from the cricketing fraternity praised Mandhana for her batting, Deol decided to indulge in some banter.
Deol posted a photo of Mandhana raising her bat to celebrate her century and along with that wrote a caption, “Alexa please play: “oh haseena zulfo vali!!!” @mandhana_smriti.” Mandhana, known for her witty posts on social media, decided to respond to Deol in the same manner. “Alexa please put @imharleenDeol on mute,” she wrote.
