'Amazing' Kaur re-writes T20 record books


//

Harmanpreet Kaur has become the first woman to hit a century in an international Twenty20 to help her side to a 34-run win over New Zealand in the Women's World Twenty20 opener.

A year after knocking Australia out of the one-day World Cup semi-finals with a blistering 171, Kaur piled whacked an unbeaten 103 off just 51 balls against the White Ferns in Guyana.

Her knock included eight sixes, already one more than the Indians hit as a team combined in the last World Twenty20 at home in 2016.

Batting first, Kaur combined with Jemimah Rodrigues (59 from 45) in a 144-run fourth-wicket stand to help India to 5-194 from their 20 overs.

In reply, the world's best women's T20 bat Suzie Bates hit 67 off 50 balls as New Zealand reached 9-160 as Indian spinners Dayalan Hemalatha and Poonam Yadav claimed three wickets each.

The win on Saturday (AEDT) puts India at the top of Group B alongside Australia, with them and New Zealand likely to vie for the top two spots in the pool to reach the semi-finals.
