Ex-India Captain launched the savage attack on the women's team.
The former Indian team captain launched the savage attack on the women's team after its defeat in the semi-final of the T20 world cup to Australia. In the T20 semi-final, the women's team faced a five-run loss and bowed out of the match. India has put the limits on Australia to 172/4 in 20 overs and cruising at 97/3 in the run chase at the halfway mark in the innings. However, the side's batting collapse endured, with Harman Preet Kaur's dismissal being triggered, as it ended at 167/8. Unfortunately, she performed brilliantly until run out of her bat when the bat was stuck at the crease while returning for the second run. After she was dismissed on 52 runs off 34 deliveries, India failed to maintain a quick run flow, with Deepti Sharma, richa ghosh, and sneh Rana failing to take India past the finishing lines. In the game following, the women's team in India was come for a fightback by former cricketers and fans, but the former captain, Diana edulji, has come down hard on team players. In the side criticism, he has said that the Indian women's team cannot urge BCCI to complete the cricketing setup. “I think that the U-19 team is more suitable than seniors. They never choke in the final. From 2017 to 2023, it is the same old story, elulji told PTI. "The BCCI should have a proper assessment of players' fitness. I know the yo-yo test is tough for women's teams. Out of 15 women, 12 will fail this test, but there are different criteria that follow that time to accept the women's fitness standards. Now, there is no accountability on font," she told PTI a day after a five-run loss in semi finale against India. "They must first improve their fitness, catchy running between wickets, and fielding. Unless the team has strength in its legs, it cannot run.
Further, the edulji said that India was required to do away with star culture and have poor tips for women's cricket. "They required the best plan to reach the top. You can get every information from the BCCI consisting of equal play. Every time any team loses a winning game, they adopt this habit to learn from it. BCCI must make strong calls and not provide into the demand of players. Having the best tips for the future is important.
