Jhulan Goswami praises Mumbai Indians’ high-intensity training camp

Jhulan Goswami, the former Indian bowler and Mumbai Indians’ new bowling coach and mentor, shared some insights into the team’s preparation for the upcoming Women’s Premier League 2023. The Mumbai-based franchise commenced training on February 25th and held their second session on Sunday. Goswami joined India’s national team captain Harmanpreet Kaur at the training session on Sunday.

Goswami spoke about the importance of focusing on the work and not being complacent, despite any past achievements. She praised the team’s work ethic and communication during the session, stating, “The manner in which the girls put in the effort today, the way they were on the field as a team, the communication, we tried to connect with them as well.”

The former Indian bowler also highlighted the intensity and energy of the training sessions. “On the second day, the intensity level is so high. It was a good experience,” she added.

The Mumbai Indians are one of the most successful teams in the Indian Premier League and are hoping to replicate their success in the inaugural edition of the WPL. The team is a blend of young players and international stars, including Natalie Sciver, Hayley Matthews, Chloe Tryon, and Amelia Kerr, alongside Isabelle Wong and Heather Graham. Harmanpreet Kaur is expected to captain the team, with only two Indian cricketers, pace all-rounder Pooja Vastrakar and batter Yastika Bhatia, in the squad who were part of the Indian team in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023.

The Mumbai Indians will face off against the Gujarat Giants in the opening clash of the tournament on March 4th at Mumbai’s Dr DY Patil Sports Academy.
