The Indian women’s cricket team ended Day 2 at 276/5 after rain brought stumps prematurely on a day opener Smriti Mandhana scored her maiden century in the one-off the Pink-ball Test against Australia at the Metricon Stadium in Queensland on Friday. Mandhana put on a display of exceptional batting class to pace her innings to perfection. She was dismissed by Ashleigh Gardner after scoring a magnificent 127 off 216 balls. Mandhana had ended Day 1 at 84 not out yesterday as she took apart the opposition bowlers in style. Along with Shafali Verma, Mandhana gave a strong start at the start of the innings. All Australian bowlers suffered due to inconsistent lines and lengths and only Sophie Molineux found her way through with Verma’s wicket on Day 1.
