Women's World T20: Harmanpreet becomes first Indian to score century

ANI  |  Providence [Guyana] 

Women's cricket team captain Harmanpreet Kaur on Friday romped into history books as she became the first Indian to score a century in the T20 Internationals.

Kaur smashed a ton off just 49 deliveries hitting seven fours and eight sixes, helping India post a daunting total of 194 for 5 in 20 overs against New Zealand.

This was India's highest-ever total in the history of the Women's World T20.

Kaur also stitched a sensational 134-run partnership with Jemimah Rodrigues who also scored her fourth T20 half-century, hitting 59 off 45 deliveries.

Jemimah also became the youngest Indian to score a half-century in the T20s.
