Harmanpreet kaur emphasize on need of women ipl after loss in 2nd t20i against australia

Gold Coast. Indian T20 team captain Harmanpreet Kaur stressed on the need for women’s Indian Premier League (IPL) after their close defeat in the second T20 match of the series against Australia on Saturday. The Indian women’s team had to face defeat by 4 wickets in the second match of the 3-match T20 series played at the Carrara Oval in Queensland. In the ODI series also, the Indian team was defeated in close matches.

Harmanpreet said in the post-match press conference, ‘If you look at how Tahlia McGrath batted, we can see that she is getting confidence from tournaments like Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). They are well prepared to play international cricket.

He said, ‘She has not played much international cricket but she played several matches (WBBL) before playing for Australia. We have some young players who haven’t played much cricket at the top level, like fast bowler Renuka Singh.

The 32-year-old all-rounder said, ‘Renuka has done very well in domestic cricket but she does not have that much experience. Had we also had a women’s IPL, the domestic players would have got a lot of opportunities to prove themselves in pressure situations. Renuka conceded 13 runs in the 19th over, which turned the match in favor of Australia. Experienced Shikha Pandey also conceded 11 runs in the 18th over.

8 Indian players are playing this season in WBBL and some players also played in ‘The Hundred’ in UK. Harmanpreet gave the example of men’s IPL in which youngsters got a chance to play with the greats of world cricket. He said, ‘When we see a young talent playing, we can see the maturity of their game. They would have played at least 40 to 50 matches.

Harmanpreet said, ‘I think we are lagging behind at this time because of this. Before playing at the international level, if we get to play in domestic tournaments like IPL, we will definitely improve. Before playing international cricket in Australia, his players have played 20 to 30 matches in WBBL. This gives you experience, which gives you an advantage in international cricket.
