Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday hailed the performance of the women’s team after it made it to the final of ICC Women’s World Cup in the United Kingdom following a huge win over Australia in the semi-final on Thursday.

“The BCCI would like to congratulate Mithali Raj and her team for showing consistency in their performances in the tournament so far,” BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement.

Choudhary heaped praise for all-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur, who played a memorable knock of 171 not out off 115 balls to help the team win by 36 runs.

With this win, India set-up the final date with hosts England, who got the better of South Africa in the other semi-final.
