Indians eyeing a turnaround

Calcutta: Having lost their campaign opener to Sri Lanka, India will hope to bounce back in the Women’s World T20 when they take on England at the Sylhet Stadium, on Wednesday.

The England match could prove to be India’s do-or-die clash. They are placed third in the table and a loss on Wednesday could hurt their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages.

The main reason behind India’s loss in the last match was their poor batting performance. They failed to show character and application. Chasing a small target of 129, all the batters needed to do was to show patience. But they failed miserably in their efforts, unable to settle down at the crease.

As far as their bowling is concerned, they delivered a disciplined show. They bowled at a tight line and never gave any space to the opponent batters. So their immediate task will be to iron out the flaws in their batting.

However, things will not be easy for India. England, who have also lost their first match, will be coming hard at India. For England, there were not any shortages of individual efforts. But they failed to deliver as a team against the West Indies.
