Harmanpreet Kaur's unbeaten 171 propelled India to 281/4 in the 42 overs. The hard-hitting batswoman was in fine form as she punished Australia bowlers on the way to the best knock of her career. Her 115 balls innings comprised of 20 fours and seven sixes.
Harmanpreet's effort was widely celebrated on Twitter.

Harmanpreet Kaur celebrated her hundred by throwing her helmet because Sharma almost ran her out. SHE'S DESTROYING EVERYTHING— Jarrod Kimber (@ajarrodkimber) July 20, 2017
Let's all remember that Harmanpreet Kaur played the WBBL this season. She knows this attack well. What a good move that is proving to be.— Snehal Pradhan (@SnehalPradhan) July 20, 2017
