The Indian women’s cricket team, silver medalists in the women’s cricket competition at the Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022, will play again on Saturday when they play England in the opening T20I of their series. India has had problems winning games in recent years; the most recent instance of this being the gold medal match against Australia at CWG 2022 when the Harmanpreet Kaur-led team suffered a severe batting collapse.

In the 163-run chase, the team was at 118/2 when it was finally bowled out for 152, missing out on the coveted gold medal. On the eve of India’s maiden Twenty20 international match against England on Saturday, captain Harmanpreet pondered his team’s failure to win games.

“On that, we are working. I am aware that these issues have been bothering us for a while. We must exercise patience, and after some time, we will also start to see benefits “explained Harmanpreet.

This time, Dayalan Hemalatha and KP Navgire have been brought to the lineup as additional hitters who can help us win the game. They performed well in domestic cricket, scoring a respectable number of runs. Because things are simpler when there is balance, we need to have it on our side in the lower tier, she said.

The 33-year-old also discussed the Indian team’s planned batting strategy to achieve better outcomes in subsequent games.

“When it comes to batting, we need to be a little flexible because sometimes you have to see who is bowling, who does better against her, and who can score those runs for us. We will be extremely adaptable in terms of batting. The right-handed hitter said, “We will make decisions based on the circumstances of the game.

Three T20Is and as many ODIs will be played during the two-week white-ball trip by the Indian women’s cricket team to England. The T20Is will be held in Hove (September 10), Derby (September 13), and Bristol (September 15), while the ODIs are slated to be organized at Hove (September 18), Canterbury (September 21), and the Lord’s (September 24).
