Jersey no 18 in cricket: Smriti Mandhana and Virat Kohli wear the number 18 jersey for the Indian Cricket Team.

Batter Smriti Mandhana and vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur are the stalwarts of the Indian Women’s cricket team. Both of them proved their class in the recently concluded ICC Women’s World Cup match against West Indies to help India register an easy win.

At one stage, the Indian team was struggling at 78-3 but then came the carnage. The duo of Mandhana and Kaur took the mantle in their hands to stitch an amazing partnership. Both of them combined for 184 runs for the fourth wicket and turned the tide in India’s favour.

While Mandhana completed her fifth WODI century in just 108 balls, Kaur batted for just 100 balls to complete her fourth century. It is noteworthy that Mandhana and Kaur scored their second and third World Cup century respectively to play a pivotal role in a  155-run victory.
