History beckons the Indian women's cricket team when it takes on England in the ICC World Cup final on Sunday, aiming to cap a fairytale run with a maiden title triumph and put some past demons to rest. The Mithali Raj-led squad has been living a dream so far in the tournament, the biggest moment of which has been the 36-run win over six-time champions Australia in the semi-finals. Harmanpreet Kaur
On Sunday, the women in blue will look to ensure that its gritty campaign reaches the logical conclusion after putting in the hard yards consistently in the tournament. India's best performance in the Women’s World Cup event has been the runners-up finish in the 2005 edition, where the team had lost to Australia in the final. With Australia out of the way now, tomorrow could prove to be the moment that changes the course of women's cricket in India.
A win tomorrow will also be the perfect climax for legendary players like Jhulan Goswami and Mithali Raj who were part of the runners-up team in 2005. Goswami is the highest wicket-taker in women’s ODI history whereas Raj is the leading run-getter in the 50-over format.
