IND W vs AUS W: Smriti Mandhana Hits maiden Test hundreds in Pink ball Test Cricket

Woman Indian cricketer Smriti Mandhana hits her maiden Test century during the one-off Pink Ball match against Australia.

Mandhana peppered the off-side field repeatedly with some gorgeous shots to reach her maiden Test hundred off 171 balls against Australia on Day 2.

Mandhana was forced to wait for her maiden hundred on Thursday when the rain forced early stumps on the opening day of the Pink-ball Test against Australia at Gold Coast.

The Indian batter remained unfazed, however, as she scored with considerable pace. She eventually reached the three-figure mark in the 52nd over of the innings with a boundary in the midwicket region of Perry.

Earlier on Thursday, Mandhana revealed that she familiarised herself with the pink ball by keeping one in her kit bag for the last three months, looking at it on and off while trying to ‘understand’ it.

“We just had two sessions with the pink ball. I was coming from the Hundred (in England) so I didn’t really get much time to play with pink ball. But during Hundred, I just ordered a pink kookaburra ball, just to keep it in my room because I knew that there is going to be a Test match. So that I can just look at the ball and understand,” said the 25-year-old.

Mandhana became the first Indian women’s cricketer to score a Test century on Australian soil, as well as the first to score a century in women’s Pink Ball Test for India.
