Indian Women Cricket Team Players – As the Indian women’s cricket team battled drought, form in South Africa and injury concerns, they lost sight of what was in front of them, a place in the World Cup semi-finals.
Sometimes it is dangerous to applaud the practice of fighting a lost cause because it hides many mistakes. Fighting on the show is a must-win game feature. And Harmanpreet Kaur shows that struggle, hunger and final push. As the Indian women’s cricket team battled drought, form in South Africa and injury concerns, they lost sight of what was in front of them, a place in the World Cup semi-finals.

With the Protea fire burning brightly at Hagley Oval with Mignon du Preez and Sune Luus forging the partnership, the required run rate hovered around seven runs and all they needed was a run from every ball. With three off-spinners turning the ball into two right-handers, Mithali Raj gave everyone a deep leg.
ECC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022: Full Squad of Teams Participating in the Tournament
Since the beginning of the 40th period, India has given singles and couples on the side with the same energy that educational institutions have given sweets in the celebration of Independence Day. Over 30 runs were scored in one and two overs in that region as the South African batsmen never felt the pressure of scoring.
The captaincy is not straightforward. It never has been. There is always the fear of not doing enough. But in the situation Mithali was in, she had to decide whether she wanted to be protected behind the thigh square or in front of it. She may have square hind legs or short middle legs in a circle. She needed both those fielders on the ropes and that unfortunately played into the hands of the chasing side.
But India’s campaign cannot be boiled down to this final phase. It’s been a tournament where they’ve had moments of being champions, but at other times they’ve looked like a mediocre unit.
Shefali Verma made two ducks to start but Smriti Mandhana got out of the blocks with her lazy elegance. Even after winning their first few matches, the turmoil at the top intensified against the hosts in the third match as India lost to New Zealand. Mandhana and Kaur took care of West Indies with a ton that made India a huge first innings total. The top-flight fell again in the tournament, this time with England failing in their second loss of the tournament.

The loss to Australia may haunt them the most. While both openers flopped, it was up to Yastika Bhatia and Raj to rebuild, which they did, but there was a rate of labor strikes. In the end, Kaur’s blitzkrieg declared all the results, but it was never enough for the Australian side to take the draw in the World Cup.
The only match in which three of India’s top five batsmen scored more than a strike rate for a hundred was against the West Indies. It was also the only occasion where they posted more than 300. In other encounters, mostly Raj and everyone except Verma and Kaur batted slowly. After running Jemimah Rodriguez out of the side, there is a serious vacuum in terms of scoring quickly in the team. Sorry, there are still empty spaces in all these surveys.
Captain Raj threw the sitter at the white cabbage. Then they make mistakes again and again in that game. It is clear that fielding is India’s weakest link in this World Cup. It came back to haunt them against South Africa in a match they could not afford to be sloppy. Fumbles and dropped catches dented their chances as the Proteas won the match in the last over.
For someone like Verma with a world-class skill level, she admires the structure that the field has taken a backseat to since ages. Not only Verma, there are hundreds of girls playing cricket in remote areas of India. They were only taught batting and bowling. Modern cricket places more emphasis on fielding than any other skill set and it is time coaches and mentors working at the grassroots level paid serious attention.
