Future of Indian women cricket team:

1. Nayan Mongia opinion

Nayan Mongia said he had selected the 12 players to improve their playing skills.
He noticed that the women’s team has a lack of strength. Mongia told that they are excellent learner, but they have to focus on their fitness. In the running match, the team has to end up making mistakes because this will make you lose concentration. He also requests their state government to provide them with facilities to improve their playing skills so that they can come back with better preparation. Hemali Borwankar, Tanya Bhatia, Sweta Verma and Prema Paul have impressed Mongia by their playing skills. Mongia said some of the girls are late starters, but the national cricket academy doing its best to provide them such facilities.

2. Rajkumar Sharma opinion

Rajkumar Sharma trained six leg spinners, four off-spinners in this camp. He said that the girls of the team are having excellent skills and ready to represent the country. In his opinion, the batsman needs more power to hit the spinners so that he focused on the spin bowling skills of the Women cricket team. Radha Yadav, Preeti Bose, Sushree Pradhan and Fatima Jaffer are some players who impressed Rajkumar Sharma. Sharma said these girls are perfect but need some excellent coaches for state-level games so that they could debut very soon in the international matches.

3. Previous Records

Indian women’s cricket team is on the fourth rank of top ten international teams who win the highest matches. Indian women’s cricket team has played 270 games still and gets victory in 149 games. The team gets defeat in just 116 games. This record is excellent and can justify their hard work. The Australasian women’s cricket team is standing on the first position of this list. But the hard work for improving the playing skills of Indian girls can increase their ranks very soon.

4. Mix gender IPL tournament
