OverviewEdit

The Mithali Raj-led India Blue had won both their league matches to book a place in the finals while India Red had only beaten India Green in the run up to the finals. With a seven-wicket win against India Blue in the final, India Red lifted the Women's Challenger Trophy 2016-17. Smriti Mandhana led the 130-run chase in the one-day game with an unbeaten 62-run knock after the Jhulan Goswami-led attack had restricted the opposition to a sub-par score.[3]
