On Tuesday, needing nine off six balls, Indian women were staring at defeat when they lost Poonam Yadav (7) in the first delivery, but Harmanpreet plundered Letsoalo over deep midwicket to bring India back on the chase and sealed the win with a couple of runs in the last ball of the over.

Meg Lanning of Australia leads the charts with 804 points while Raj with 733 points is second in the list. Harmanpreet, known for her towering sixes is 574 in the list.

In the women's list, Jhulan Goswami, who did not play the Qualifiers due to injury, is placed 3rd in the bowler's list behind Marizanne Kapp of South Africa and Stefanie Taylor of West Indies. Left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht is eighth in the list.

Jhulan is also seventh in the list of all-rounders while Shikha Pandey and Deepti Sharma are 19th and 20th in the list.
