The Indian women’s cricket team has always got a back seat when it comes to cricket. The way we remember the men’s cricket team’s players, we hardly knew any of the women’s team’s players, until July 2, 2017. Yesterday, the girls proved that they are no less than the men in blue. It was a historic day as almost the whole nation was interested in watching the women’s cricket team’s match.
Excelling in batting, bowling, and fielding, the girls defeated Pakistan’s team by 95 runs and won the ICC World Cup. On June 18, 2017, Pakistan defeated India and took the ICC Champions Trophy and it’s the girls who have taken revenge. India won the toss and decided to bat first. They gave Pakistan a target of 170 runs and made the match a treat to watch for all of us.
Excited Tweeple flooded the micro-blogging site with wonderful praising tweets. Check out some of the best reactions:

It was the first time that the women’s cricket team got such support by the nation. Hope people will continue showing their interest in women’s cricket. It’s proof that women are capable of doing anything for the nation.
