The Harmanpreet Kaur-led team, coming off a spectacular victory over Pakistan in their opening match of the Women’s T20 World Cup, will now face the West Indies on February 15 at Cape Town’s Newlands Stadium.
Notably, the team led by Hayley Matthews lost their previous game in humiliating fashion against England, and another loss could eliminate them from the competition. As a result, they will be prepared to perform well and resume their winning ways, but the Caribbean team will face several challenges.
The Indian batting squad can cause chaos in the middle if they don’t improve on their poor ball handling from their previous game. From their batting perspective, the captainShemaine Campbelle and I both shared the responsibility, but there is still much to be done.
Even though India was able to defeat their arch-rivals in the first game, they still have problems that need to be resolved. Only four wickets were secured by the bowlers in the last game; if they want to contend for the championship, they will need to increase that number.
Jhulan Goswami’s expertise in the centre will be missed, but it’s time for the young players to take the lead and play steadily throughout the competition. Jemimah Rodrigues (53 of 38 deliveries) and Richa Ghosh, on the other hand, were at their meticulous best with the bat, and that will be a huge boost for the team.team for the upcoming contest.
