Smriti Mandhana's century sparks India's revival against SA

Bengaluru, June 16 (UNI) In a display of sheer brilliance, Smriti Mandhana's remarkable century against South Africa illuminated Chinnaswamy Stadium in the first Women's ODI here on Sunday, propelling India to a formidable total on a challenging pitch. Her stellar innings was the cornerstone of India's resurgence, guiding the team to a competitive score of 265/8.

Team India found themselves in early trouble, with Shafali Verma (7) and Dayalan Hemalatha (12) falling cheaply. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur (10) also failed to leave a mark, as South Africa's bowlers capitalised on these early breakthroughs. At 99 for 5, India's prospects looked grim.
