"The determination and willpower is incredible".

"Members may recall the ICC Women's World Cup Final in 2017, when unfavourable comparisons were made between the number of members in the pavilion and full stands in the rest of the ground", he said.

"It is always hard to play two games in three days, especially against two very good teams". Her cheers for her favourite team, whistling and dancing on team India's achievements and her sporty spirit naturally caught the eyes. The first game against South Africa, I had to take my time.

This gave a head start to Virat Kohli and team against attacking bowlers of Bangladesh.

Srikanth said he was impressed with the other opener K L Rahul as well.

He got his fourth hundred of the tournament against Bangladesh. "He looks to be gaining in confidence and is becoming another important player at the top of the order". Pictures and videos of her cheering for the team and with the team went viral on social media as cricket lovers from all over the world appreciated her enthusiasm and support for the national team.

Winning the toss, captain Virat Kohli chose to bat first looking to set a huge total and gain an early advantage.

"It was a good effort - Mustafizur bowled well", Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said. "We wanted to play the ideal combination for the small boundary". Further, he went on to add saying that Sharma is playing on a different planet, which is tough to match. However, Bangladesh's bowlers kept making inroads, chipping away at the Indian batting with regular wickets.

Head coach Mickey Arthur is desperate for Pakistan to have their World Cup destiny in their own hands when they play Bangladesh on Friday.

Fellow opener Soumya Sarkar could not convert the start he got into a big innings either, hitting Hardik Pandya straight to Kohli at short extra cover to depart for 33. The tournament has been nice, exceptional performance by Shakib and Mushy (Mushfiqur) batted really well right through.
