Posted on the 15 July 2017 by Sampathkumar Sampath
In 2012  Vadodara got its new Gaekwad as the 45-year-old scion of Gaekwad family, Samarjitsinh, was crowned in a traditional ceremony at Lakshmi Vilas Palace in the Gujarat city.  Samarjit, the only son of Ranjitsinh Gaekwad, the former king of Vadodara, became the natural successor to the throne after his father's death.    ICC Women WC ~ India storms into Semis - Gayakwad's 5 for 15 The Gaekwad or Gaikwad are a Hindu Maratha clan.  A dynasty belonging to this clan ruled the princely state of Baroda in western India from the early 18th century until 1947. The ruling prince was known as the Maharaja Gaekwad of Baroda. With the city of Baroda (Vadodara), it was one of the largest and wealthiest princely states.  The Gaekwads, together with several Maratha chieftains, fought the British in the First Anglo-Maratha War.  Gaekwad, or Gayakwad, also survives as a fairly common Maratha surname, found mainly in the Indian state of Maharashtra. By swimming against the tide and overcoming several obstacles, Rajeshwari Gayakawad,  emerged  as the first woman cricket player of Bijapur district to get selected in the national women’s cricket team. The left arm spinner today scaled newer heights in 27th match of ICC Women's World Cup  at County Ground, Derby.   ICC Women WC ~ India storms into Semis - Gayakwad's 5 for 15 Being put into bat by the White Ferns skipper Suzie Bates, India lost its openers cheaply, but Mithali Raj made a fine century supported by H Kaur 60.  Veda Krishnamurthy played a breezy knock making 70 off mere 45 balls.  India set up a formidable 266 as target and then skitted out NZ for 70 winning by mammoth 186 runs ~  Rajeshwari Gayakwad had magical figures of 7.3-1-15-5 Now India is into Semis and two more wins would entitle it to the crown.  All the best Indian Team With regards – S.
