Thanks to our team for supporting me in my journey. I was just thinking to play to my strengths, and with confidence, and according to my cricket, that’s it. (Seniors) are always giving my experience and they compliment me before going out to bat. That’s so much for me. I was so disappointed (to miss the hundred). I just want to be a good cricketer for my side.
Sneh Rana: So proud to have a partnership between us, with Taniya, Harman and Shikha Pandey, most importantly at that time.
On the mentality during the game: I just thought stick to your basics, and play according to that ball, that’s it. One loose ball, and I made it to the boundary, that’s it. It’s an emotional moment for me, being picked by an India team after five long years. That’s an emotional and really proud moment for me. From here, I’m taking so much confidence. I loved to play Brunt, I’ve never played her, so it gave me great confidence.
Knight has shaken hands. MATCH DRAWN. India remains unbeaten in the last four Tests it has played, but that fourth consecutive win will be a record for another day and, in all likelihood, another captain.
Interesting field decisions here. Knight is pushing her fielders to the boundary when Rana is coming on and bringing them up close when Bhatia comes in, trying to make that century harder. Fair to the English side and that seems to have prompted the umpire to hint as shaking hands.
