India's female hitters need to address the dot-ball issue

 Sunday's reassurance five-wicket win against Britain regardless, Harmanpreet Kaur and company should do substantially more to set up serious areas of strength for an in the impending ladies' T20 World Cup 2024 in September in Bangladesh.

A lot of illustrations and focus points look from the three-match series which Britain won 2-1...

Dab BALL Wretchedness: Pursuing an impressive 197 in the main game, India had 51 spot balls. Basically, eight and half overs went scoreless. The Women in Blue were bowled out for 80 in 16.2 overs in the second match. Once more, 53 balls, only one conveyance shy of 9 overs, weren't scored off.

Inferior STRIKE RATES: None of the main six players - Shafali Verma (116), Smriti Mandhana (100), Jemima Rodrigues (85), Harmanpreet Kaur(114), Richa Ghosh (108), Deepti Sharma (93) - had a 120 or more strike rate in the series. Amy Jones, Nat Sciver-Brunt, and Danni Wyatt, on the other hand, had strike rates of 140 or higher. Indeed, even the T20 vocation strike paces of the India players needs improvement. Offie Deepti is India's most solid bowler yet the group needs more imaginative and risk-taking hitters at the top. Running between the wickets too needed hostility. Shafali was hesitant to run hard in any event, while pursuing 197.

Uncertain AGAINST Twist: Excepting a couple of events, the players showed an obvious hesitance to get out of the wrinkle. Getting stuck demonstrated shocking, particularly in the second game when the Britain spinners packaged India out for 80. The offie (Charlie Dean), the left-arm spinner (Sophie Ecclestone), and the leg spinner (Sarah Glenn), who appeared more incisive than their Indian counterparts, were at sea negotiating with India.

Nonappearance OF A Decent SECOND PACER, LEGSPINNER: India made early leap forwards in every one of the three games politeness Renuka Singh, whose sharp inswingers brought her seven wickets. Be that as it may, both Pooja Vastrakar and the youthful Titas Sadhu were taken for runs. Likewise with Poonam Yadav out of the crew, the group was feeling the loss of a quality legspinner.

NO Parttime BOWLERS In real life: In India's last 28 T20 matches, Captain Kaur has not bowled an over. She did, however, bowl her off-breaks in five BBL games while playing for the Melbourne Renegades. In addition, Shafali, whose 3/15 helped India defeat Bangladesh in Mirpur last year, was not used. Valid, India have a decent spinner of a similar assortment in Deepti, yet seasonal workers ought to be utilized as well.

Unfortunate Handling AND Getting: Guideline gets were dropped, stumpings missed. Especially in the first game, the ground fielding was terrible, resulting in 197, 20 more than India had ever chased.

SUCCESSORY USE OF DRS: India should be seriously knowing and sensible in their utilization of DRS. In the subsequent match, both Smriti and Harmanpreet took the DRS when they looked plumb leg-previously. So did Jemima in the third game.

Endure WITH PERFORMING Novices: Left-arm spinner Saika Ishaque and youthful off-break bowler Shreyanka Patil bowled well, asserting five wickets each. Patil is likewise a decent defender. Allrounder Amanjot Kaur showed balance under tension.
