Smriti Mandhana Takes Wicket in First Over, Celebrations Extraordinary


The hosts, the Indian women’s cricket team, registered a win by 4 runs against the South African women’s team in the second ODI at Bengaluru on Wednesday. With this result, Team India sealed the three-match ODI series with one game still left. First, in the match, the Indian team played and scored 325 runs, from the very start putting them in what must have looked like a very comfortable victory for India. But the South African women’s playing team struggled till the very end before all-out for 321 runs, only 5 runs left to win.

One of the astonishing incidents happened during the match. First, it was her stellar innings that had taken the team to such a big score; now, she shone in the bowling department as well. She grabbed an important wicket in the first over of her career, hence playing an important role in Team India’s victory. Basically being an opener for Team India, the prime task for Smriti has been to hit centuries with fabulous batting, and it has been the case in most of the victories for the team. The youngster, however, rolled her arm over in this second ODI against South Africa.

The first time Smriti rolled her arm over in her career, the spacious clean bowled South African batter Sune Luus on the second ball of her first over. 

Second ODI saw India enter the game without its veteran pacer Renuka Singh Thakur. Result? Team failed to take wickets when needed the most. Hence, captain Harmanpreet Kaur surprised everyone by giving a ball to Smriti Mandhana. It was the 15th over of the innings when Mandhana rolled her arm for the first time in her life, and on the second ball, she picked up a wicket. With that wicket, Smriti did some joyful dancing on the field. Her teammates congratulated her on her magical performance. In her first over, Smriti conceded only 6 runs, besides getting one wicket.
