India player Deepti Sharma, who missed out on a ton in the previous game, scored a sublime century on Thursday for Bengal against Railways in Women’s Senior One Day Trophy 2020-21 at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot.
Opening the batting for her side in the all-important semi-finals, Deepti began cautiously and then upped the ante as her innings progressed. She reached the three-figure mark in the 46th over with a boundary over the mid-wicket region.

However, her innings wasn’t enough as Railways cruised to victory in 44 overs. Skipper Mithali Raj hit the winning runs while Punam Raut top-scored for her side with 69.
