Vijayawada, November 21.
A disillusioned Harmanpreet Kaur strolled into the question and answer session on Friday and repeated how the fundamental handling mistakes cost them the T20I opener regardless of the players putting on a solid 150-run add up to on the board.
Youthful into her captaincy stretch, and absolutely a new kid on the block while confronting a stuffed media room, Harmanpreet spilled her heart out after the six wicket annihilation to West Indies. The response to about each question finished with how the handling had driven the team down.
At the point when the ground handling had ventured up and limited the ruinous West Indies line-up for 137, the stage was good to go for India’s in-shape players to commute home the preferred standpoint and square the series. That, be that as it may, wasn’t intended to be.
A superficial look at the scorecard may let you know that the West Indies bowlers safeguarded a direct 137 on a batsmen’s heaven to win the series for their team, however to the individuals who have seen this game, it will go down as another part in India’s long-standing history with batting breakdown.
A despondent Harmanpreet strolled into the meeting room again keeping in mind talking about finally how everything went downhill, she persistently wavered between faulting the batting and protecting the youthful line-up at the same moment.
S Meghana, India’s debutant on the day, had commenced her debut with three boundaries off Deandra Dottin’s single over. However, the naiveté of sewing a thump together reflected as she perished in her endeavor to get more runs.
Well known all-rounders Shikha Pandey and Jhulan Goswami, and T20I authority Anju Patil’s stay could best be depicted as squint and-you-miss-it. That with a senior, all around settled accomplice at the flip side.
With the Indian team 59 for 4, right over the midway stamp, the captain set aside her opportunity to stabalise one end yet with neither the hitters nor the all-rounders putting a sticker price on their wicket, Harmanpreet was left fighting the fairly unpracticed tail. It wouldn’t have been long until the inescapable happened.
