Narendra Modi, BCCI, sports athletes' tributes for India's women cricket team

England beat India by nine runs to win the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women's World Cup final at Lord's in London after an emotional, pulsating and gut-wrenching final which was in doubt until the penultimate over. Despite her gutsy knock of 86 runs, ably supported by an innings of 51 runs by Harmanpreet Kaur, it wasn't sufficient for the women in blue to cross the line. People from all across the country complimented the Indian ladies for their splendid performances.

Although the nerves got the better of the Indian Eves and lost in the final by 9 runs, they were showered with all the love from India.

Mithali Raj and the Indian women's cricket team are the toast of the nation at the moment after their stupendous success in the Women's World Cup. They've opened up the channels for women's cricket and they should be really proud of themselves. By taking India to the final, they were able to inspire fans all over the world in a sport that is begging for recognition from its male counterparts.

The 28-year-old who had struck a breath-taking 115-ball unbeaten 171 against Australia in the semis added that she was immensely proud of her team, for their incredible run in the 2017 edition. Jhulan Goswami is the pick of the Indian Bowlers. "We always knew that the team has shown a lot of fight, we were at a stage where we could have been out as well, but this team knows how to fight", said Shrubsole after the match. The best ODI I've seen in a long long time.

Batting first, England put up a decent total of 228, with Natalie Sciver scoring 51 from 68 balls.

On the other hand, 19-year-old Deepti was in brilliant all-round form as she scored 216 runs and took 12 wickets in nine matches.

India had featured in the final of the 2005 World Cup in South Africa, but it went rather unnoticed at that time.

West Indies Women, finalists in the 2015 tournament, finished sixth after winning just two of their seven games in the preliminary round.

MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said in a tweet, "Our daughters have made India proud & won millions of hearts with their stellar performance".
