Mithali Raj has different plans against Sri Lanka

Mithali Raj
Mithali Raj said that the team will give stress on not losing wickets so early in their fourth match against Sri Lanka.

Indian Women Cricket team is currently at the top of the table after winning three consecutive matches against England, West Indies and Pakistan. The team will now play against Sri Lanka at Derby on Wednesday.

In the previous match against Pakistan, Mithali Raj led side and managed to make a score of 169. However, the Indian side was able to defend the score and won by 95 runs, but losing early wickets and lack of good partnerships became a cause of concern for captain Mithali Raj as well as for the team.

Talking about the fall of wickets, the skipper said,“We definitely will look into the fact that we don’t lose wickets back-to-back because that puts a lot of pressure on the incoming batters as well as the team. We need to work on our partnerships as batters.”

She feels that spinners have done well against Pakistan and pace attack also seemed to be improved.“In terms of bowling, the spinners have been doing well, (against Pakistan) the Pacers looked better than the last two games so it depends on which wicket we play on against Sri Lanka. If it’s a fresh wicket, then we have different plans for it,” the skipper said.
