ICC Women World Cup: Harmanpreet's mother says, let your daughters live their dreams
Harmanpreet Kaur's mother wants the nation to empower their daughters. Expressing happiness over her daughter's achievement, Kaur's mother said the entire family used to enjoy her game and would just stick to the television set to watch her game. I just want to say to other women that the way my daughter has made us proud, they should also give their daughter a chance to live their dream and shouldn't kill them in the womb," said Kaur's mother. Winning the toss and electing to bat in Derby, which was virtually India's home ground, Harmanpreet played a gem of an innings, scoring 171* to propel India to 281. She smashed the Australian bowlers to all parts of the ground and was absolutely brutal with her power hitting. Her 115-ball knock was studded with 20 fours and seven sixes and was rightly adjudged the player of the match award.Now, India will face host England in what could be expected as a cracker of a final on Sunday at the iconic Lord's.
