Smriti Mandhana continued her fine run in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 and scored a century (106*) to lead India to a seven-wicket win over West Indies in Taunton. This was India’s second win in two matches. The 20-year-old opener carried her bat through the innings and made sure India do not mess up the 180-run chase. Captain Mithali Raj provided good support with her 46 runs. Earlier, spinners and some superb fielding kept Windies women slow and got India regular wickets. West Indies managed only 183 runs for the loss of eight wickets from their fifty overs.
