Mithali Raj
Dilani Manodara
Hasini Perera
Punam Raut
Nipuni Hansika
Chandima Gunaratne
Ekta Bisht
Poonam Yadav
Prasadini Weerakkody
Sushma Verma

Then I went through the players who performed recently. This is my second lineup.

Smriti Mandhana
Sripali Weerakkody
Ekta Bisht
Inoka Ranaweera
Udeshika Prabodhani
Chandima Gunaratne
Sushma Verma

India-NZ. As it happened.

And the series is leveled. Well. We saw the ODI series level. The third and final match was more than a blast. Despite having a ton of runs on the scoreboard, the match and the series could have gone either way. That was the best part of it. Course it was a world of entertainment for all cricket fans. Honestly even a third party not emotionally vested in the two teams could watch and appreciate the demonstration of fine cricket. Now the T20 series is looking the same way.

Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style.
Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contributed. Like I s…
