Skipper of the Indian women’s team Mitali Raj he was clearly unhappy with the players’ inability to turn the shot and the large number of points in the opening match of the One-Day International Series, which England won with eight wickets here.
Mittali’s 72, who took India to 201/8 for 50 overs, went in vain as hosts Tammy Beaumont (87 of 87) and Natalie Skiver (74 of 74) led England 1-0 in a three-match series. Sunday.
Both Tammy and Natalie added 117 for the third gate against a tasteless Indian bowling attack. As opener Tammy knocked out 12 fours and sixes, Natalie hit 10 fours and one six as the Indians struggled to break through an early gate within the first five overs.
The inability to turn the shot was Mitali’s main focus after the match.
“Clearly, yes, we need to look at this aspect and work on the rotation of the strike. Having said that, we require at least one more top-order dough, in the top five, to ensure our running,” Mitali said. only the second cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar to complete 22 years in ODI cricket, ESPNcricinfo said.
“We also need to understand that the English with bowling are very experienced; sailors especially (more) than we have. They bowling in their conditions; they know how to bowling in their conditions and they really bowled today.”
Mitali acknowledged that India has failed to publish targets while it is more convenient for them to pursue them.
“Over the years, I’ve seen that it’s much easier for us, the Indian team, to pursue a goal because we know how to increase our running speed,” Raj said. “But when it comes to posting a goal, I guess there’s something we have to work on when and how we get to 250, because we can’t go, knock and then lose the door in the top row, and you have the lower order to score these tracks, like what we did today. That will take us to 200 or 210, but that’s not something we would want, “she said.
Mitali said the defeat would have to be analyzed without a second ODI and corrective action.
“So, yes, like Vata, together with the coach, we have to sit down to find a way where, if we fight first, how we can try to put a total of 250 on the board and where he should put the acceleration and how to we make our inning do it, “Mitali said.
