Women’s World Cup
Indian women’s team were sitting pretty at the top of the table in the first half. The performance in the matches there after has put them in serious trouble. The Mitali Raj side had a fantastic start to the world cup. The losses to mighty Australians and South Africans have put them into serious trouble of getting knocked out of the tournament.
India will take on New Zealand which is dubbed as a quarter final match, winner of the match will move into the semi of the tournament.
A thrashing at the hands of South Africans and Australians have led to the situations for the team. Indian team has played a conventional and cautious brand of Cricket when likes of Smriti Mandana failed to give a fast pace start. Indian team need runs on the boards and put pressure on the oppositions. Women’s cricket has moved from 230-240 targets, the 270-280 per innings are par in this age and day.
Batting style needs a change and put real pressure on New Zealand. This women’s world cup has got more viewership than any other Women’s world cup. The good show in the match will definitely encourage broadcaster to showcase more of the women’s matches.
