“Striking Emotional Balance Key for India Ahead of Women’s T20 World Cup,” says WV Raman

India has had a cricketing history from colonial times and the love and passion flow in the veins. For a team from the sub-continent, the scenario gets tighter and expectations fly high. With the women’s world cup coming, the faces in the tournament shall have their nerves to look out for. A similar point was touched by the Indian coach WV Raman.

He stresses that the team will have to find emotional balance if they wish to see themselves in the later stages of the tournament.

He believes that the Indian team should be ready to face the ups and downs of the tournament.

The best way to keep oneself balanced would be to approach every game as it comes. Raman highlighted that a brief format of mere 20 overs can see matches turn course in an over or so and the team handling nerves and emotions better will certainly have a safer hand for catching the cup. Further, he also talked about the tri-series scheduled before the world cup. He agreed that Harmanpreet and her side will have buckets of pressure and sea of pressure to cope.

While recalling the previous outings of the team in the event, Raman believes that the team has come a long way and has all the potential to cross the semis this time and eventually lift the cup.

He says that “Plenty of progress has been made. The team is finding equilibrium in terms of composition and the way in which the girls have been approaching their training and skill sessions. It’s good to see the amount of progress individually and collectively.”

The Indian side is scheduled to face the host Aussies in the opening match of the tournament. It won’t be wrong to believe that the 20 over games will give no room to relax in a tournament like this.

The team which looks to repeat the wonders of Dhoni will have to find a way to get in a composed state and hold the nerves in the wrenching moments. With top teams and top names to take part in the world cup, it is safe to say that this might be the most-awaited and interesting installment of a female cricketing tournament.
