The Indian women will begin their 2022 World Cup campaign against Pakistan on Sunday March 6 at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. After reaching the final of the last edition in 2017, Mithali Raj’s side are looking to perform strongly again.
India, who finished runners-up in both 2017 and 2005 editions, are keen to be a step ahead and claim the title that eluded them, particularly skipper Mithali Raj and veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami, who will contest their final World Championship.
The Indian team reached New Zealand a month early to get used to the conditions.
However, the bowlers struggled in comparison to the batting unit, which managed to hit 250-plus runs five times in the seven 50-over games, including two warm-up games. India lost a lone T20I and 4 ODIs before winning an inconsequential final ODI against New Zealand.
However, Mithali’s girls should go into the opening game of the World Cup with confidence after 3 straight wins.
India has never lost an ODI to Pakistan in women’s cricket history, but captain Mithali Raj said the Women in Blue would not take lightly at the Women’s World Cup.
“I think Pakistan is a good team too and I’m sure they’ve prepared very hard for the tournament and so have we. Any team here, we can’t take any team lightly. So we’ll go into each game with a lot of effort.” full of intensity and with a lot of confidence,” said Mithali Raj.
“As a team we are looking forward to attending the World Cup and starting our campaign tomorrow. We don’t see it as playing against Pakistan, we’re looking at a team that’s prepared and we’re prepared to do our best.”
