Women’s World Cup 2022: Happy with way I’m scoring runs, would love to continue the form, says Mithali Raj

Women’s World Cup 2022: India captain Mithali Raj is looking forward to her record-breaking sixth appearance at an ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup.

New Zealand will host the Women’s World Cup from March 4 to April 3. On March 6, India will face Pakistan in their first match of the tournament.

“The talent that we’ve got in the last year, we’ve tried some young talent in the squad, and most of them have shown that they have the ability to play at this level like Richa Ghosh, Shafali Verma, we have Meghna Singh in the seamers, Pooja Vastrakar. They all have been given good game time and those series have really helped them and me as a captain to find out where they fit in into the composition of the team,” Mithali said, as reported by ICC.

“As far as me personally, I am happy with the way that I’ve been scoring runs. And I would love to continue the form into the World Cup,” she added.

With her extensive World Cup experience the India captain has been imparting her knowledge to those about to make their World Cup debut.

“The young talent in the side today. I tell them that you don’t have the experience of the past World Cups. So it’s a clean slate for you, all you have to do is enjoy the big stage. I did have a word with Yastika Bhatia. The other day, I took her out for a coffee and we’ve spoken quite a bit. She’s a chatty kid and asked me a lot of questions,” said Mithali.

“The only advice I would tell the young players is to enjoy the big stage. Because if you pile up the pressure you may not be playing the best that the team. And you would want to do in the World Cup,” she added.

In the last five-match ODI series against New Zealand, India had lost 1-4.
