Expectations from the Women in Blue has risen to win the ICC T20 World Cup in South Africa. Just a few days ago, the Under-19 girls team made the country proud when they won the junior World Cup. The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 is scheduled to start on February 10, while Harmanpreet Kaur and co. will open their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on February 12.
On Monday, India were thrashed by 44 runs by the Aussies in a warm-up match. What is the secret of the Aussie teams, men or women, that they are always difficult to beat? That being said, they are also the defending champions of both the T20 and ODI World Cups and are indeed favorites to win the Cup.
But Harmanpreet’s women are not to be taken lightly and have talked of drawing inspiration from the Under-19 team. They have the ability to turn the tables, give the opponent the toughest fight, and win from there.
