Smriti Mandhana completed a stellar century versus Australia and has solidified India’s position in the four-day Pink test match. India resumed Day 2 at the score of 132/1 and Smriti continued to carve out boundaries with her superb wrist-work. She got a reprieve when she had score 80 when she got adjudged catch out off Ellyse Perry, however, Ellyse had bowled a no-ball and the catcher Beth Mooney grounded the ball despite a superb bit of fielding.
Then when India reached 195, Ashleigh Garnder looped one outside off, tempting a wild shot from Mandhana, who chipped it straight to Tahlia McGrath. India is stationed at 205/2 at the time of writing, with Punam Ruat at 33 and captain Mithali Raj fresh to the crease.
