The 28-year-old has been an integral part of the India batting line-up and most recently played a match-defining knock of 171* in the semi-final against the defending champions Australia.

Rain had delayed the start of the match by 195 minutes and Harmanpreet came in at the fall of the second wicket in the 10th over with the floodlights on. However, skipper Mithali Raj has said that the Kaur would be available for the final and that the icing applied was precautionary to deal with niggles. Lauding her effort, Bhakar said that "Whenever our players show excellence or perform outstandingly in global events, we recommend their names for promotion".

"Right from her childhood, she has been playing cricket with boys".

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 fairy-tale run with a maiden title triumph and put some past demons to rest.

In the game against the White Ferns, it looked like India reach 220 until Veda Krishnamurthy's unbeaten 45-ball 70 lifted them to 265.

This is the second time India will play World cup final. She works on building her innings.

While Hussain predicted an English win on Sunday, citing more depth in the home side, he also cautioned them against any complacency, given that India are the only side to beat England in the group stages of the tournament.

Jhulan Goswami did well against New Zealand and Australia. "They backed themselves to make fifty and those runs gave them confidence", Raj said. All said and done, everything happens for a reason and good. She's young and will learn from the mistakes she made in this tournament.

"I am speechless. For me, Jhulan Goswami, it is very special because we are the two players from 2005 who have been with the team and it feels like just going back to 2005. She will be in better shape and experience to take along", she added. She is a very stylish player with wonderful determination, discipline, focus, all that is required to make a champion.

"He has announced out-of-turn promotions to women cricketers of Railways now in the Indian World Cup squad in England", Rekha Yadav, ED/Sports & Secretary of the Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB), said.
