IND W vs ENG W: Captain Mithali Raj said he was disappointed with the defeat in the first ODI against England – there is need for improvement in all three categories

The Indian women entered the ODI series confidently after the only Test match against England and did not have a good start and the team suffered a unilateral defeat by 8 wickets in the first match. India’s women’s captain Mithali Raj is quite disappointed after the match. He said that if their team were to perform well in the remaining matches against England, it would have to improve in all three categories. Batting first, Mithali Raj’s 72 helped India score 201 for eight. In reply, England chased down the target in 34.5 overs with a 119-run partnership between Tammy Beaumont (87 not out) and Natalie Skiver (74 not out).

After the match, Mithali said, ‘We have to perform well in all three categories. The five batsmen in our top order need to play well. Bowlers can keep the line and length accurate. We need to focus on our fielding as well. “We have left many balls open. England have experienced bowlers who know what length to bowl. We will move on to the next match with good preparation. Mithali hinted at the team’s change in the second ODI at Taunton on 30 June.

The Indian skipper said, “Only Jalan (Goswami) was the strongest of our fast bowlers. In the next game, we can play the spinner. You can also change the batting order. England captain Heather Knight wins his fast bowlers and batsmen. Knight said, ‘Catherine (Brunt) and Anya (Shrabsole) got us off to a good start with a new ball. India play slow wickets at home, so it is difficult for them to play short pitch deliveries. I really enjoy watching Catherine and Shefali clash. It was a good wicket. The bowlers had seam movement and batting was easy.

He said, ‘Tammy has been batting amazingly while saving his form from a tour of New Zealand. The young pair Sophie Ecclestone and Sarah Glenn take the wicket while stopping the run and win our matches. Beaumont was named the man of the match for his amazing innings.
