India’s universal women’s cricket score Sne Rana in the drawn one-time test against England won her praise from skipper Mitali Raj, who thought that “several good seasons in the country” gave her a lot of confidence.
Sne became the first Indian cricket toy to take four wickets and score half a century (undefeated 80 in the second inning) in Test Cricket.
“Sneh Rana will definitely be back in five years, but this girl has obviously had a good few home seasons. I’m sure she came in with a lot of confidence. She played very, very sensibly, along with Tania Bhatia (44 not released) and Shikha Pandi (18). “This partnership was very, very important for us after we lost Harman (Kaur) and Punam Raut at this stage,” Mitali was quoted as saying by cricinfo.com.
Mitali said Sneh’s contribution from the lower ranks, including her 41-year partnership with Shikha, which lasted nearly 16 shots, played a major role in bringing India to safety.
“I’m very impressed with all the debutants, because it’s from Shafali to Deepti, Sneh, Puja Vastrakar and Tania Bhatia, they all did really well. You see, we need to understand that they have no experience and you can’t really bombard them with too many inputs on how to play in these situations and all you can do is give them a lot of confidence that they have to believe in their abilities, ”Mitali said.
Mitali added that the draw gave the team a huge psychological boost.
“Psychologically, I think it’s a big boost (equality management). It will definitely put England on its hind legs,” she added.
