Veda Krishnamurthy, an Indian woman cricketer, says that a 130-140 score is no longer sufficient to compete in women’s T20I cricket. She also stated that as the India Women’s team prepares for the forthcoming 2022 Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Birmingham, every player must now play aggressive cricket and score big. Women’s cricket will compete in a multi-sport event for the first time in history.
The 29-year-old hitter has played 124 international matches for India and has scored over 1700 runs. However, the right-handed hitter last played international cricket in 2020 and is not part of India’s CWG 2022 roster. She usually represents her home state of Karnataka Women in domestic cricket. She discussed how the T20I game has evolved in recent years, emphasising the importance of getting a good start in the game’s shortest format.
The Indian women’s cricket team, which ranks fourth in both the ICC T20I and ODI rankings, has struggled to compete in international cricket in recent months. They won the most recent bilateral series against Sri Lanka, but they had previously lost three series to considerably better sides Australia, New Zealand, and England. They also failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the 2022 World Cup after winning only three of seven group stage games. However, Veda feels that the present team has adequately prepared for the forthcoming 2022 CWG and is capable of competing at the greatest level.
