“Definitely the girls have been brilliant in the last set of matches, proud that we will be at Lord’s on 21st. We have a different match hero for every match so that says a lot. The bowlers deserve to celebrate a lot because we’ve won a lot of matches because of them. Luck went my way, but I kept going and didn’t think about the catch dropped and the no-ball. Anya has been special, a great leader for us, clear with the plans and a great captain to play under,” Smriti Mandhana said post-match as quoted by ESPNCricinfo.
