Women’s World Cup: Jhulan Goswami backs Mithali Raj, says she is ‘one big knock away’
The defending champion England bowled out India in 37 overs at the Bay Oval, putting up a clinical display.
“I think in this World Cup, every match is very much important and we can’t predict what will happen in a match. Definitely, we have to bounce back,” said Jhulan Goswami after the match.
“We have to recollect everything, we have two days, we’ll definitely sort out whatever things are there and definitely try and go there and play positively,” she added.
Referring to the batting lineup, she said:
“I don’t think it’s a concern. Who is batting at number three? It is Mithali Raj, she is just one big knock away. In the past series, she has been batting fantastically against New Zealand. And is just one big knock away in this tournament. I don’t think they are having issues I think Deepti also did a pretty decent job and at number five Harman [Harmanpreet Kaur] is playing,” she added.
England shined with the ball, with Charlie Dean (4/23) ripping through India’s top-order. And Anya Shrubsole (2/20) putting the finishing touches on an outstanding team effort. Heather Knight’s fifty added the finishing touch on a late England flurry with the bat.
