World Cup finalists’ Indian women cricket team have proved that interest in sports will make you toil to a great extent and still guarantee you a positive result if you work hard on consistent basis, regardless of the fact that which gender you belong to?
Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his successor Virat Kohli have in the recent past made a mark for themselves with their approach to run-chases, even men’s Indian cricket team crumbled to the pressure of chasing a target on most occasions.
Now when we talk about women team skipper Mithali Raj, she need not take the defeat to heart as they have made themselves and whole nation proud by the effort they showed in the international ICC tournament.
Most of the players are young and should be around for other mega events and the first-hand experience at Lord’s on Sunday should stand them in good stead.
However, the loss in the World Cup should come as an eye-opener. Short-comings in fielding, strength and even temperament need to be addressed at the earliest for Indian women to take their game to the next level.
