Sometimes praising the achievements of the fight in the cause of losing is dangerous, because it hides many flaws in it. Visible struggle is the nature of the game to be won. And Harmanpreet Kaur shows that fight, hunger and last push. As the Indian women’s cricket team battled the dew, a poor South African line-up and injury problems, they lost what lay ahead, a place in the semi-finals of the World Cup.
When the Protea fire burned brightly at Hagley Oval with Mignon du Preez and Sune Luus sewing a partnership, the required run rate hovered around the seven-run mark and all they needed was to run each ball. With three off-spinners turning the ball on the right two-handers, Mithali Raj was assigned to all inside on the leg side.
From the beginning of 40 on, India gave away singles and doubles on the side with the same energy as educational institutes gave away sweets in Independence Day celebrations. More than 30 runs were scored in one and two in that period in that area as the South African batsmen hardly felt the pressure of the scoreboard.
India Cricket Introduces Equal Match Fees For Men And Women
Mastery is not simple. It never was. There is always the fear of not doing enough. But in Mithali’s condition, she has to make a decision whether she needs protection behind square on the leg side or in front of it. He can have backward square leg or short mid-wicket inside the circle. He wants both of those fielders on the ropes and unfortunately they play on the hand side chasing.
But the Indian campaign cannot be classified in this last phase. It was a tournament where they had a championship phase, but at other times they looked mediocre as a unit.
Shefali Verma had two ducks to start with but Smriti Mandhana got out of the blocks with lazy elegance. Even after winning their first pair of games, the stumble above was magnified against the hosts in the third game as India lost to New Zealand. Mandhana and Kaur took care of the West Indies with tons that lifted India to a massive first innings total. The top order went down once again in the game, this time against England making mistakes in their second defeat of the tournament.
The loss against Australia will probably bother them the most. As the two openers failed, it was up to Yastika Bhatia and Raj to rebuild, which they did, but at a pace that struck the work. Blitzkrieg Kaur finally put up a competitive total but it wasn’t enough against an Australian team that always saves its best for the World Cup.

The only match where three of India’s top five batsmen scored more than the strike rate for hundreds was against the West Indies. It was also the only occasion they posted more than 300. In all other meetings, most Raj and everyone except Verma and Kaur canceled slowly. After dropping Jemimah Rodriguez from the side there is a serious vacuum in terms of fast scoring batters in the team. Unfortunately, that empty space remained throughout this expedition.
Captain Raj dropped a sitter against the White Ferns. Then they fouled up again and again in that game. It is clear that fielding is India’s weakest link in this World Cup. It hit again against South Africa in a match where they could not afford to be sloppy. Fumbles and dropped catches left their chances as the Proteas won the game in the last over.
For someone like Verma whose skill level is world-class, he comes from a structure where fielding has long taken a back seat. Not only Verma, there are hundreds of girls playing cricket in India in the most remote districts where they are only taught how to bat and bowl. Modern cricket prioritizes fielding more than any other skill set and it is time coaches and mentors working at the grassroots level take note of the same.
