Sehwag. As soon as these names appear, only fours and sixes are seen in front of the eyes. Virender Sehwag’s avatar is seen in front of which the big bowlers used to lose their sweat. But, here we are talking about Lady Sehwag. Lady Sehwag means Harmanpreet Kaur. In women’s cricket, Harman also lashes at the bowlers the same way Virender Sehwag’s bat used to spin in Men’s cricket. In the first match of the ODI series which started against South Africa, he also got the same Atishi style. The special thing is that this match was also the 100th match of Harmanpreet’s ODI career.
Now it is the 100th ODI and if you go through something for your team, what could be a bigger thing than this. Harmanpreet also redeemed this special moment of her career. He resurrected the hope of India being seen extinguished in the match against South Africa with such a strong representation of the bat.
When Harmanpreet’s footsteps hit the crease to play his 100th ODI, the 14th over was going on and India’s 3 wickets had fallen to just 40 runs. That is, the situation was fragile and the opposite too. The guests had tightened the screws on the match. In such a situation, Harmanpreet Kaur, known as Lady Sehwag, started showing her game as soon as she came.
As conditions were, India also needed a run and a partnership. Harmanpreet Kaur met both these expectations. He played a battling innings of 40 runs off 41 balls in his 100th ODI. In this innings, Harman scored 6 fours. That is, if he saw 24 runs out of 40, he had collected only 6 balls.
Not only this, Harman made a lot of partnerships for the fourth wicket as well as scoring runs. He along with Mithali Raj added 62 runs for the fourth wicket. The result was that the Indian team, which was on 40 for 3 at one time, had reached the score of 105 after crossing the 100-run mark for 4 wickets after Harman returned to the pavilion. That is, Hamanpreet had at least accepted the hopes of South Africa joining India soon.
