ICC Women's World Cup 2017: Twitter hails Harmanpreet Kaur's scintillating knock against Australia

Harmanpreet Kaur played an innings of a lifetime as India stormed into the ICC Women's World Cup final, defeating Australia by 36 runs in the semi-final played at Derby.

Harmanpreet smashed seven sixes and 20 fours as she scored 171 in just 115 balls. Thanks to her hard hitting, India put up a good total of 281/4 after rain reduced the match to 42 overs a side.

This was India's highest ever total against the Southern Stars while Harmanpreet's 171 was the second highest individual score in ODIs for India behind Deepti Sharma's unbeaten 188 against South Africa earlier this year.

Australia succumbed under pressure as the defending champions were bowled out for 245 in 40.1 overs.

India will feature in a World Cup final for the second time, having lost to Australia in the final of the 2005 edition.

Here's how Twitter reacted to Harmanpreet's breathtaking knock and India's victory:

Harmanpreet's family residing in Moga, Punjab were over the moon and celebrated India's win.
