Harmanpreet Kaur's mother delivered a powerful message after her daughter's heroics for India in the semi-final against Australia in the ICC Women's World Cup on Thursday.

 "Girls must be empowered, shouldn't be killed in womb. The way my daughter made the country proud, other girls should also be encouraged," she told  after Harmanpreet powered India to a 36-run win over defending champions Australia in Derby. Harmanpreet's 171 not out was the highest score by an Indian player, male or female, in a World Cup knockout match.

"Right from her childhood, she has been playing cricket with boys. Her hunger for runs never dies and this is reflected in her strike rate," her sister said. "Harman is always positive. On field she always behaves like Virat Kohli and is aggressive like him. However, off-field, she is quite calm and composed. 

Right from her early days, she treated Virender Sehwag as her batting idol and even bats like him," she said. Harmanpreet, the Indian vice-captain, smashed a career-best 171 off 115 balls, leaving the Australian bowlers in a daze and helping India post an imposing total of 281/4 in a match reduced to 42 overs a side due to inclement weather. 

 Harmanpreet's third ODI century was embellished with 20 fours and as many as seven sixes. It was out of the world power-hitting by the girl, something that has made her a stand-out player for India. 

The milestone from 51 to 100 was reached in 26 balls while she raced to 150 from 101 in mere 17 balls. The sixes flew from her bat with regularity as the Aussie bowlers had no clue as to what hit them.
