Harmanpreet Kaur’s 171* helped India defeat Australia and set up a final with England at the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup

Modi wished the team in a series of tweets where he greeted all the cricketers individually and appreciated their talents.

India are set to face hosts England in the Women's World Cup final today at the iconic Lord's stadium.

Kaur had suffered cramps during her sensational innings and asked if she would be available for the summit clash, Raj said: "Well, I am sure she would want to be part of playing XI that is going to the World Cup final at Lords. Her cool approach to the game shall surely help the entire team", Modi said on Twitter. In both games, there was a left-hander who was starred with her match-winning knocks of 90 and 106* that made many compare her to the graceful Sourav Ganguly. "There's still one game to go and if we put a flawless performance in then, I'll be a very happy captain", Knight said. They lost their previous final, against Australia in Centurion, by 98 runs. But, Thursday's unbeaten 171 in the semi-final is probably a sign of her peaking at the right time.

"I was at Lords when our record was broken, and we were interviewed in the pavilion for three-quarters of an hour by the media", she says. The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut and Sharma have also stepped in when needed. Meanwhile Raj, in what was, together with fellow 34-year-old Jhulan Goswami, likely to be her last chance to win a World Cup after being on the losing side in 2005, was in good touch. India will play the final against England at Lord's on Sunday.

Blackwell scored 203 runs in England at 50.75 through five innings, always offering a calm head at the crease as she has done for more than a decade. India have won six and lost two - to Australia and South Africa. Lord's is known worldwide as the Home of Cricket and that sometimes bites England on the rear because other sides raise their game when they play there.

Gambhir says India will be too good for Sri Lanka on the tour, beginning with the first Test from July 26.

Georgia Elwiss and Jenny Gunn savour victory but now have just four days to prepare for the final What TV channel is England vs India on?

"All we've done in the last 18 months is to deal with situations like that", she added. He said, "I never treated her as a daughter but like a son and prompted her to play even among the boys without bothering for gender". The two highest totals in the tournament belong to England: 377 for 7 against Pakistan, and 373 for 5 against South Africa; no other team has scored more than 305 in this World Cup.
