BRISTOL (UK): India opening batter Smriti Mandhana on Sunday said that every moment of representing the country in the longest format of the game was worth it.
India women played a one-off Test against England this week and after fighting performances by Sneh Rana and Taniya Bhatia, the Mithali Raj-led side was able to walk away with a draw.
“A very special and emotional moment to represent India in white and every minute has been worth it! A huge shoutout to the striking performances by our girls on their debuts- we’re all so proud of you,” tweeted Mandhana.

In the match, Mandhana returned with scores of 78 and 8. In the first innings, she was involved in a 167-run opening stand with Shafali Verma.
Sneh Rana played a gritty knock of 80 runs in the second innings of the one-off Test as India women were able to walk away with a draw against England here at the County Ground, Bristol.
At one stage, India women found themselves at 199/7, but the lower-order scripted a memorable fightback and Rana led the charge and with her gritty knock, the Indian side walked away with a draw. England did not even come out to bat in the second innings.
Deepti Sharma also played an innings of 54 in the second innings and the Mithali Raj-led side was able to walk away with a memorable result.
