She has become the fifth Indian woman cricketer to do so. Prior to that, captain Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Anjum Chopra, Amita Sharma have also played 100 matches in One Day Internationals.
The Indian team could not score very big while playing first against South Africa. The team scored 177 runs for nine wickets in the scheduled overs. Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur could play a brilliant innings on behalf of the team. Where Mithali scored 50 runs off 85 balls and Harmanpreet scored 40 runs off 41 balls. Harmanpreet, playing her 100th ODI, took an aggressive attitude and played some good shots. His innings, however, did not last long. He hit six fours before being caught at log off.
At the same time, Mithali took some time to set his feet at the crease but he kept one end. He later shared a 52-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Deepti Sharma (26 off 46 balls). The Indian innings was shattered like cards after Mithali was dismissed on the full-back. India’s score was 154 for four at one time which soon increased to 160 for eight. The Indian captain’s innings included four fours and a six. For South Africa, fast bowler Shabnim Ismail took three wickets for 28 runs in 10 overs.
