World Cup: After a stern reality check, a real test of character awaits Mithali Raj and Co

The doodle was stopped. In what turned out to be a rather harsh reality review, Mithali Raj and Co’s undefeated racing games at the ICC Women’s World Cup ended Saturday at the hands of South Africa.

It was a complete blow, do not get me wrong. The margin of defeat – 115 races – is a clear indicator that, on that day, South Africa more than surpassed India in all three departments.

It all started so well for India when Shikha Pandey has delivered one of the tournament balls in her first time – a full ball that started off stump, folded in the air and nestled in the paste database Laura Wolvaardt to send truck .

With the 1: 1 reading score in the second, Raj has to give a small flap in the back to put South Africa in the first battle.

But this feeling of joy was short lived, while Lizelle Lee blew the park’s Indian attack with Raj who would later describe it as one of the best World Cup moves he saw. She hit Sept. 6 and ten to four legs in her turns of 92 (versus 65 balls), or 82 shots to the suburbs.

It was a classic sample of clean batting. The six of these sleeves were impressive, but there is one that stands out – she went on her knees, is preparing to sweep the ball in the middle of the window, but with Ekta Bisht landing the ball out of the stop, she with the continuous movement And hard work – which lasted six years. Yes, a sweep that far exceeded. It was a kind of Lee tickets.

And to be fair to the players of the Indian bow to restrict South Africa to 273 after 134 in 20 overs was a success. Bowlers went well in the World Cup so far, and what are the different options that Raj has at his disposal, despite the difficulties of Jhulan Goswami Bisht and the rest exploded.

On flat ground, the restriction of the team that scored the highest score ever reached in the ODI in their previous game against England was a job well done. The championship, an old enemy for this team, proved to be a problem again – but in the locker room, Raj would have thought the goal was possible.

Trilla, who blows hot and cold in the tournament so far, has proven to be the cancellation of India. Smriti Mandhana, who started the tournament with two elegant moves that have felt the world of cricket and recognize his undeniable talent, followed by 90 106 * with scores of 2, 8 and 4. He is in the problem of threshing India.

In the two games that Mandhana has made these great results, Indian score at the end of 20 overs read 97/0 (against England) and 74/2 (against the West Indies). In the three games from where Mandhana was only until the 1920s, the score read 58/1 (against Pakistan), 63/2 (against Sri Lanka) and 65/7 (against South Africa, of course).

Even taking into account that the circumstances of the games are different, there is a clear difference in the score rate in India when Mandhana is returned early. With Deepti Sharma at No. 3, India was left to consolidate after a first window, as is understandable. However, the sharp drop in the score rate when the southpaw style does not blister on the top, is a major concern for India.
