Number 18 cricket shirt: Smriti Mandhana and Virat Kohli wear the number 18 shirt of the Indian cricket team.
Batsman Smriti Mandhana and vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur are the mainstays of India’s women’s cricket team. Both proved their class in the recently concluded ICC Women’s World Cup match against West Indies to help India to an easy victory.
At one point the Indian team was struggling at 78-3, but then came the carnage. The duo of Mandhana and Kaur have taken over in his hands to forge an incredible partnership. Both combined for 184 runs for the fourth wicket and turned the tide in favor of India.
While Mandhana completed his fifth century WODI in just 108 balls, Kaur beat just 100 balls to complete his fourth century. It should be noted that Mandhana and Kaur scored their second and third World Cup centuries respectively to play pivotal roles in a 155-point victory.

Cricket jersey no.18
Mandhana, who wears the number 18 jersey for the Indian women’s team, shares the same number with former captain of the men’s team Virat Kohli. Coincidentally, Mandhana is pretty consistent for the women’s team as well.

Mandhana and Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry are the only women’s cricketers to have won the ICC Women’s Player of the Year award more than once in their careers.
Cricket No. 7 Shirt
Apart from Mandhana and Kohli sharing the number 18 shirt, Kaur and former male captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni also share the number 7 shirt. Kaur and Dhoni love playing an aggressive brand of cricket. Kohli and Dhoni have had amazing partnerships with each other and the same goes for Mandhana and Kaur.
7 & 18 are jersey numbers with magic emotion attached just like Dhoni – Virat & now Harman – Smriti ✨
