MACKAY: India’s under-fire bowlers have to put on a much improved show as they played the third and final women’s ODI here against an Australian team that turned 27 on Sunday.
A marginal no -Ball call on last delivery by Jhulan Goswami found out India won the wrong side of the result in the second WODI.
The game was indeed a Humdinger but unable to total 274 defending after the home team was mostly on the mat, there is not much talk of Mithali Raj’s outfit.
There is a trend in cricket that teams who lose out of the throats of the throats in tight matches like India on Friday are a trend Snap wins lose both momentum and confidence in their next games.
The way Beth Mooney, who opened the game with Tahlia McGrath and Nicola Carey in the absence of Rachel Haynes, would snatch the game away would be long Time to hurt.
And they could do this with ease without one of their best thugs Alussa Healy and legendary captain Meg Lanning contributing.
India’s bowling attack, with the exception of Goswami, who is in a league of its own, has not in 2021 Much of this is due to the fact that the Indian cricket establishment failed to find a worthy new ball partner for Goswami when Amita Sharma left the scene a decade ago.
Shikha Pandey is a very hardworking cricketer who could but never keep up with the level of a regular partner of Goswami and neither Mansi Joshi, Puja Vastrakar or Monica Patel could create trust.
Niranjana Nagarajan was put in a cold store by the cricket system and Meghana Singh is still raw and needs time for the delivery.
The spin department was India’s strong point, but stronger opposing teams have now measured how to play Poonam Yadav’s twisted broken legs, and therefore it is largely has become ineffective.
Deepti Sharma has been consistent at least at bowling, but is more of a restrictive bowler with no skills to run through an opponent.
There was a bit of complacency in Yadav that took its place for granted seemed to have, knowing that there weren’t enough replacements on the horizon.
Ditto for Deepti, whose overall game has not improved a bit in the last four years since the WODI World Cup 2021.
She stays still stuck in the middle overs where the team is losing momentum, and this happens even after playing in all of the major T20 leagues around the world.
The big question is, how does Mithali do that herself exposed to the heat because of her pedestrian strike rate would manage to lift the team.
She has scored many half centuries of late, but with the exception of the insignificant victory in England, most of those runs have added to her growing number from Contributed over 20,000 international runs without much help to the team.
If India lost this series 3-0, the chances of which are imminent, then they would have lost nine of the last 11 50-over games, which is not the best preparation to the WODI World Championship in New Zealand early next year.
Mithali and Deepti are the two weak links in this lineup when it comes to scoring runs in a quick clip.
They did last year wasted a lot of supplies which put the other thugs under tremendous pressure and the below average team total made it even more difficult for the bowling attack.
You could say that the defeat of the Indian captain after 8 balls out of 23 The blessing was that Smriti Mandhana and Richa Ghosh were able to increase the stake that was lost after the departure of Shafali Verma.
If Harmanpreet Kaur is available, that would be great, but r the Indian vice captain was also in bad shape so no one knows how much it will do in such a situation.
India: Mithali Raj (captain), Harmanpreet Kaur (vice captain), Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Punam Raut, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana, Yastika Bhatia, Taniya Bhatia (doorman), Shikha Pandey, Jhulan Goswami, Meghna Singh, Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Poonam Yadav, Richa Ghosh, Australia:
