India's Record At Women's Cricket ODI World Cup

India made their Women's Cricket World Cup debut in 1978.  They ended up last in the four-team tournament, then endured another fourth-place finish in the next edition 1982. Not able to generate enough money from the sponsors, India women skipped the next edition. But from 1993, India have been making a constant in the tournament, making gradual progress.

India were the semi-finalists in 1997 and 200. They made the final in the 2005 edition, only to lose the title clash against Australia by 98 runs ar SuperSport Park, Centurion. India then finished third four years later, beating Australia in the play-off, after finishing fourth in the league stage. In 2013, they slumped to a seventh-place finish.

India's Key Players

Smriti Mandhana: Often hailed as India's future captain, the 25-year-old from Mumbai is one of the finest batting talents in world cricket. She was out under observation after a blow to the helmet during a warm-up match. But she is now fine and will be India's key batter.

Shafali Verma: She is still 18, but already one of the most respected players in the world. The opening batter from Rohtak is known for his destructive batting. A good outing from her, and India will a good outing too.

Jhulan Goswami: She is one of the legends of the game. At 39, she not only has the experience but also the ability to dictate the play. And the Chakda Express is still raring to go.
