It’s not the right time to talk about her performance.”
Jhulan would reasonably wish to harp on positives reasonably than selecting on Harmanpreet. “It’s time to see how she led the team despite her poor run.

We must back her. And missing catches is a part of the game.”
Bengal teen Richa Ghosh, who made her debut in the previous Triseries remaining towards Australia, performed two matches in the T20 World Cup and made 18 in the remaining. “Richa looked very confident. She has a positive intent. I’m really happy for her,” Jhulan hailed. The speedster attributed Australia’s dominating present to their robust grassroots stage cricket.

These are all part of a learning process.” The remaining, which coincided with the International Women’s Day, additionally witnessed the highest attendance for a ladies’s sporting occasion in Australia. “It’s a huge achievement for women’s cricket.
