Indian star cricketer Smriti Mandhana said that she is happy with her current form after slamming her maiden T20 century in a Kia Women's T20 Super League encounter.

Mandhana hit a 60-ball-hundred and powered Western Storms to an easy seven-wicket win over Lancashire Thunder.

The 22-year-old Mandhana helped her team to achieve the set target of 154 runs in 18.4 overs.

Her splendid inning included 12 boundaries and four sixes. She is now the top run-getter in the tournament.


Interestingly, Smriti's national team captain Harmanpreet Kaur, failed to open her account for Thunders.

Smriti's sequence of scores in the competition so far has been 48, 37, 52 no off 19 balls, 43 no off 27 balls and 102 off 61. 

The left-handed opener, recently, equalled the record of the fastest half-century in women's T20 cricket set by New Zealand's Sophie Devine.

She hit a half-century off just 18 balls during a match between Western Storm and Loughborough Lightning at Taunton.
