GUWAHATI: He is happy the way Indian team played in the entire competition of the Women T20 World Cup but Subhadeep Ghosh, the fielding coach of the team, is little bit upset too. The reason is very simple: Indian women team narrowly missed the cup.
India dominated the entire competition and reached the sumit clash without losing a single game. However girls in blue lost the final to host Australia.
Sharing his experience with The Sentinel over telephone about the recently concluded Women T20 Wold Cup Subhadeep said, “It was a very good competition for us and the team really played solid cricket throughout the meet. It’s unfortunate that we lost the final at the iconic MCG which witnessed 80,000 plus crowd on that particular day.”
Sharing his experience with Indian Women Cricket team the former first class cricketer said, “It’s a nice experience. We have a great team with mix of youth and experience. Shafali Verma, the young opener of our team, is very talented cricketer and she played a crucial role to take India into the final. Shafali is only 16 and the way she played in the mega event was brilliant. Our batting and spin attack is one of the best in the world. Girls are also very serious about their fitness. But I admit we need little more improvement on that area.”
Meanwhile although cricket has been called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic right now, Subhadeep today advised the State cricketers to keep focus on their fitness during their stay at home. “There are many ways to keep fit yourself without going gym or at the ground. You can do shadow practice or different agility drills on the terrace or even in drawing room and I feel cricketers must do it to keep themselves fit,” said KKR’s last season fielding coach.
