At one stage, Sri Lankan women were struggling at 14/3, but a resilient 36-run partnership between Hasini Perera and Neelakshi de Silva brought life to Sri Lankan cricket fans. But Perera’s crucial wicket of Rajeshwari Gaikwad shifted the balance in India’s favour. The Indian team held its composure in the last five overs and won its first gold medal in cricket at the Asian Games.
Despite facing a challenging pitch, India women scored 116/7, with Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues making key contributions with solid half-century partnerships. Early boundaries from Shafali Verma and Mandhana set the tone, but India lost wickets in quick succession.
This historic win not only underlines the skill and determination of India’s women cricketers but is also a source of inspiration for aspiring players and fans. Congratulations to the Indian women’s cricket team on this remarkable achievement!
