Smriti Mandhana stars in the first week of The Hundred

Scoring two half-centuries and becoming the first player to reach 500 runs in the competition, The Hundred's first week was all about the Mandhana Mayhem.

Smriti Mandhana's The Hundred is off to a flying start with the southpaw amassing two half-centuries in just three games. With her second fifty this season, Mandhana became the first player to reach 500 runs in the women's competition.

In her third consecutive season with the Southern Brave, Mandhana aims to break the final curse and finally take her side to The Hundred title.

Harmanpreet Kaur's first outing in Trent Rockets colors featured a 22-run knock from 19 balls in the opening match of the competition. Kaur ended up on the losing side against Mandhana's Brave. The second game against Birmingham Phoenix was called off without a ball being bowled. 

Jemimah Rodrigues entered The Hundred on the back of a good outing in the T20I series in Bangladesh but is yet to kickstart her campaign. The two matches have been somewhat disappointing for Rodrigues with both the bat and the ball. 

Richa Ghosh, who is making her debut in the competition, is yet to feature in a match owing to the bad weather in London and Manchester. Both London Spirit matches have been a washout.
