2.10pm That is that. Sixteen months after shellacking 171* v Australia in the 50-over semi-final in Derby, Harmanpreet Kaur produced a similar brutal innings to ensure India opened their WWT20 campaign with an emphatic win. It was the first T20I hundred by an Indian woman. Here's Annesha's blockbuster profile of Harmanpreet

Harmanpreet Kaur (who else?), Player of the Match: Excited but still a long way to go. As a team, we have a lot to improve. I know if I settle down, I can go for my shots. Jemi also played really well. When you're hitting well, you need somebody to rotate the strike. The bowling needs to improve, though. I had a bit of fever yesterday, now feeling well

Amy: Just to be honest, we got outplayed today. Tuhuhu's spell came off well, but Harman played an outstanding innings. We weren't confident with the lbw review. We tried a lot of different options but it was too late. I thought the girls played with confidence and it's good for us moving forward. We have some three days to reset ourselves.

Harmanpreet, again: Well, winning and losing is part of the game. When Ramesh Sir joined us, a lot changed and we are really happy to have him in the team. Mithali didn't get lot of runs in the first six overs and she agreed to play down and contribute. Jemi likes to express herself and never takes pressure. We need young players who are excited about playing cricket.

That's all we have for you from this match. Join Karthik Krishnaswamy and Alagappan Muthu for Australia v Pakistan and West Indies v Bangladesh. Goodbye from myself, Deivarayan Muthu, and Binoy George
