India will try to break a series of three consecutive limited overs defeats in the third and final T20 International against England on Wednesday, while star batsman Smriti Mandana is batting in 50 overs. There is much concern about the lack of continuity. The Indian women’s cricket team has lost six of its last eight ODIs. During this period the team lost four matches against South Africa and two against England on the current tour. One-day captain Mithali Raj hit three fifties but his innings helped the team win just one match, but slow batting in two matches did not help the team.
During the Women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand next year, Mandana told the virtual press conference here, ‘We have to work on a lot of things, especially in the batting department. The next seven months will be crucial. “We have to start earning good points. If I talk about one-day format, we have to bat first and consistently run 250-260, we have to work on it. Mandana said, “Of course we can have more consistency in our bowling and fielding. Maybe we need a better show and then things will get better. India reached the final of the 2017 World Cup but lost to England by nine runs chasing a target of 228 at Lord’s.

Mandana said the series against Australia before the World Cup in March-April was significant. In September-October 2021, the Indian women’s team will have to play a daytime Test, three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against the Australian women’s team. Mandana was speaking to reporters on the crucial third T20 International eve. With this match, a one-month tour of England in India is coming to an end. Due to excellent bowling and fielding in the last over, the team led by Harmanpreet Kaur won the second match by eight runs. In the match at Hove, England chased down the target of 149, losing six wickets for 31 runs in 5.4 overs, including three runs.
“The way we have returned in the last five overs shows the attitude of our bowlers and the fielding. This confidence will help give us 100 per cent to win tomorrow’s match. But it will be a new day. With this win, we will be able to level up the series in many formats. Head coach Ramesh Povar has been credited with making a positive impact on the team, especially the bowling unit. He was concerned that he and talented batsman Shafali Verma could not turn a good start into a big innings.

He said, ‘I’ve been opening innings with him in T20 format for the past two years. Opening innings with him in all three formats is exciting. We know each other, talk to each other. This helps a lot, especially in the T20 format. But we need to talk about playing 15-16 overs. Mandana praised veteran off-spin all-rounder Sneh Rana, who made a stellar comeback in the series. He praised 17-year-old Richa Ghosh who asked him to play the wicket-keeper in the T20 International series and he was impressed.
