One thing that everyone loves in India is Cricket, oh let me rephrase it!
One thing that everyone loves in India is MEN’s CRICKET.
Cricket, since its inception has been categorised as a male-dominated sport or as they like to call it ‘A Gentleman’s Game’ but lately our girls have showed that a sport knows no gender.
Here are some exceptional performances by women in cricket that are a testimony to the above statement:-
1). Mithali Raj hit a massive 214 runs against England to fetch the record of the highest individual test score by a woman cricketer.
2). Jhulan Goswami’s 10 wickets haul in a series against England is still considered a performance worthy of whistles and claps. This happened way back in 2006.
3). Harmanpreet Kaur’s impeccable innings of 171 runs against Australia played a crucial role in helping India sail smoothly in the 2017 Women World Cup.
4). Mithali Raj recently raced past Rohit Sharma to become the highest run scorer for India in T20Is. She achieved this feat. while she was pitted against arch-rivals Pakistan
5). ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier, where India was playing against Pakistan, will always be remembered for Ekta Bisht’s thunderous performance as she took 5 wickets for 8 runs and stalled the Pakistan team at 67.
It’s high time that we give equal pay and recognition to our women as well because you know what, THEY BLOODY DESERVE IT!
