Smriti Mandhana was at her absolute best during the third and final ODI between India Women and England Women at the New Road One in Worcester. Though the 24-year-old opener missed out on her half-century in the game, she received a lot of praise for his brilliant innings.
Smriti played an impressive knock of 49 runs off 57 balls in the third ODI and helped her team win the match by four wickets.
Besides her on-field batting heroics, Mandhana also enjoys a huge fan following off the field. Smriti has been labelled as the ‘national crush’ after some of her adorable pictures went viral on social media in the past.
The batswoman has once again grabbed the headlines as one of her old tweets recently started trending on the internet.
During an interactive session last year, she answered several questions of her fans. Making the most of the opportunity, a user asked her to choose between arrange and love marriage.
Mandhana did not shy away from giving a witty response to the question. She wrote, “Love-ranged’ marriage.”
Speaking of the match, the Women in Blue successfully chased down the target of 220 runs against the hosts in the Worcester ODI to avoid the clean sweep in the three-match series. All thanks to the captain Mithali Raj, who played an unbeaten knock of 75 runs off 86 balls.
