Known for her penchant to boost the bar on greatest platforms, the skipper smashed her strategy to an unbeaten 103 off 51 balls in India's at ease 34-run win in opposition to New Zealand within the opening game of the ICC World T20.

"Yesterday, I was having little bit back problem," Kaur stated after the match. "In the morning, I was not feeling well, when I came to the ground I was feeling a little low and getting some cramps."

The critical cramps hampered her running between the wickets as she got here up with a special plan.

"When initially I was running twos, I got a little cramp, after that the physio gave me medicine, and a little bit it settled down," she stated.

"Then I thought instead of running too much, if I could get more big shots … because you run too much, you get more cramps. Then I told Jemi (Jemimah Rodrigues), 'if you give the strike to me, I can go for more big shots'," the skipper printed.

Kaur, whose 171 in opposition to Australia within the ODI World Cup final year has change into a stuff of legends, didn't know whilst batting that she had gone on to change into first T20 centurion from the rustic.

"I was not looking at how many runs I was getting, I was looking at how many we needed to win the game," Kaur stated.

"We knew they have really good batters, they have Sophie Devine and [Suzie] Bates, we knew if we scored just 150, we may not (win the game)."

Kaur felt that it was a excellent batting track where a set batswoman may ranking huge.

"I knew it was a good batting track, if I settle down, I can get the runs, that's what I was thinking."

Her big-hitting prowess keeps bowlers all over the global on tenterhooks however the Indian skipper is hopeful that there may simply be larger and better things to come.

"Yes, why not? Because every day is a learning day, today I learnt a lot."
