England defeated India in women's World Cup semi-finals
Mithali did not play the last match, in the tournament he has two half-centuries
Sports desk Friday is going to be a wanderer. Indian women cricket team got out of World T20 The men's team's second T20 match against Australia was washed away due to rain when we were in a strong position. Indian fans and players should be wishing that rain would have happened in Antigua, not Melbourne. The Indian women team reached the semi-finals without being undefeated in four matches. This led to the prospect of winning the title of the team. In such a way, surrendering the team was disappointing.
Even if Mithali Raj was kept out of playing XI, the eyebrows could not be seen. After the match, there was a sharp reaction to this on social media. Coach Ramesh Powar, Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and selector Sudha Shah have been trying to prove this by saying that they did not want to change the winning combination.
Mithali had two half-centuries
Whatever the logic of Team Management, it was beyond understanding that Mitali was involved. In the tournament, he was seen in good touch and his name was also two half-centuries. Especially in such a significant match, they have a lot of experience in the team. It has been proven repeatedly in male cricket. If we take a look at the history of the 50-over World Cup then many examples come out.
Many players made the team champions at the age of 30
Rohan Kanhai (1975), Clive Lloyd (1979), Imran Khan (1992), Arjuna Ranatunga (1996), Adam Gilchrist (2007) and Sachin Tendulkar (2011), at the age of 30, is important in making his team champion Had played the role. Whatever the reason for Mithali's drop, it was not appropriate to say that Manashakti's manager Ansha Gupta was not fit for manipulative, false, immature and captaining. Mithali too would not be happy with such a statement.
Mitali-Harmanpreet's dispute should be resolved
This is a matter which officials have to deal with in the right way. It would be good if there is a dispute between Mitali and Harmanpreet, then resolve it between each other. Former Australia captain Mel Jones tweeted after India's defeat, "The Indian and West Indies teams have not been so good till the semi-finals, in the final, two teams have reached the grass root development which is the strongest. Should be the subject. "
