Shraddha Kapoor lauds Indian women’s cricket team triumph in Asian Games


Actor Shraddha Kapoor congratulated the Indian women’s cricket team on Tuesday for clinching the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Taking to Instagram, Shraddha shared a post on her stories, which she captioned, “Golden Girls. What a proud feeling! Macha Diya!!”
The ‘Women in Blue’ outshone their Sri Lankan counterparts by winning the final match by 19 runs. A fiery spell by Titas Sandhu and tight spin bowling from Deepti Sharma and Devika Vaidya helped India defend a modest total of 117 runs to secure the gold medal in the women’s cricket tournament. With this, the Indian women’s team has captured a cricket gold medal in their first Asian Games outing. This has been a remarkable year for women’s cricket in India, starting with the spirited performance of the team in the T20 World Cup, followed by the historic WPL, and now the achievement at the Asian Games.
The current Asian Games squad was led by skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who also led the Mumbai Indians outfit in the inaugural Women’s Premier League, which was crowned Champions earlier this year.
