India Women‘s Smriti Mandhana, Bollywood’s Anushka Sharma, ace shuttler PV Sindhu and Polo team captain Padmanabh featured in Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2018 list on Tuesday. Mandhana has been in top-notch form since her return in 2017. She fired in the first two games of 2017 Women’s World Cup. Mandhana then blazed against South Africa scoring 219 runs at 73 and strike rate of 95.21. Her 219 also includes career-best ODI score of 135 in the 2nd ODI. As for the T20Is, she was the second best after Mithali Raj with 135 runs from 5 matches.

In a dismal show against Australia, Mandhana was the only highlight from Indian Eves’ performance. From 3 games, Mandhana scored 2 fifties. She ended the ODI series with total of 131 runs at a staggering strike rate of 109.16. In the ongoing tri-series as well, Mandhana has been the mainstay batter for the Indian Eves. Although India have been eliminated from the series, Mandhana has stood out for her consistency.

Anushka, too, features in the list. Her latest movie ‘Pari’ earned accolades not just from her fans but also from our Indian skipper and her husband Virat Kohli.
