The 28-year old's performance led India cricket coach Ravi Shastri and experts like Harsha Bhogle, Alan Wilkins and Ayaz Memon to compare her innings to the 175 scored by India's World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev against Zimbabwe in the 1983 edition.

After struggling to score runs in the group stage of the tournament, Harman saved her best for the knockouts as she assaulted the Australian bowling unit by scoring an unbeaten 171 off just 115 balls.

Star batswoman Harmanpreet Kaur needs no introduction; especially after she hit a scintillating century to help India defeat mighty Australia and enter the final of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017.

With authorities impressed with her brillancy in the gentlemen's game, Harmanpreet Kaur, who is also an employee of the Western Railways (WR), is now expected to earn a promotion. "We will also felicitate her when she comes back home", said Ravinder Bhakar, chief PRO of WR, yesterday.

During another search, on August 5, 2013, a K9 was introduced into the suspect's home to find more clues into the boy's death. At the time, Mark Redwine said he believed his son was abducted while walking to his friend's house.

"Whenever our players perform outstandingly at global events, we recommend their names for promotion", he added.

A senior official of Central Railway, Sunil Udasi, said the State-run transport undertaking takes a good care of its players and provides them proper training. "I requested Sachin, who is a Member of Parliament, to write a letter to the Railway minister, forwarding the case of Harmanpreet Kaur", Diana said.

"Kaur is now employed as Chief Office Superintendent in Mumbai", he said.

Harmanpreet joined Women's Big Bash League side Sydney Thunder in 2016 to become the first Indian cricketer to play for an global Twenty20 franchise. "This is due to the robust domestic schedule and facilities such as 330 days-special leave for dedicated training being provided by the Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB)", he said.
