India women’s cricket team openers Deepti Sharma and Poonam Raut became the first-ever pair to share a 300-run stand in an One-Day International.
The duo shared a 320-run stand as India women finished with 358 for three in 50 overs against Ireland women at Potchefstroom during the quadrangular series in South Africa.
The other two teams participating in the tournament are Zimbabwe and South Africa.
Deepti made 188 off 160 balls, hitting 27 fours and two sixes while Poonam made 109 off 116 balls, with 11 fours.
Deepti’s 188 is the second highest individual score by a woman cricketer in ODIs. The highest belongs to Aussie Belinda Clark, who made 229 against Denmark in 1997.
