The main reason for Team India’s defeat is the former captain’s anger against Harman Sena.

As part of the Women’s T20 World Cup, the Indian team, which lost to Australia two days ago, made key mistakes in this match and paid the price. Especially with bowling and fielding mistakes made by team India, Australia made a huge score. In chasing a huge target, India lost by five runs. But in this match, the former captain Anjum Chopra criticized that the misfields of the Indian fielders and the bad bowling of the bowlers were the reason for the defeat of the Indian team.

Australian captain Meg Lanning was at 1.9 runs and wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh missed the catch and missed the opportunity to stump. Moreover, Shafali Verma missed the catch given by Aussie batsman Beth Mooney at 32 runs. As a result, the Aussies scored 172 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in the allotted 20 overs.

Anjum said in this regard.. ‘In this match, Team India failed miserably in the bowling and fielding departments. I did not understand what was India’s strategy while bowling to Australia. Of course Newlands Ground is a slow wicket. But the spinners were bowled towards the outside side of the shot. How will wickets come if all the bowlers bowl with the same strategy? If the bowlers are like this, the condition of the fielders is very bad. They also missed the catches that came in hand. Talking about Shafali Verma.. She is a young player. Generally everyone thinks that young players excel in fielding. But the situation here is different…’ she said.

India has not learned the lessons from the 2022 Women’s ODI World Cup and has been criticized for not understanding what preparations India has come up with for the current T20 World Cup.


Regarding the match, Australia scored 172 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Beth Mooney (54), Lanning (49) and Ashley Gardner (31) played hard. In chasing down the target, India were limited to 167 runs in 20 overs. Star batters Shafali (9) and Smriti Mandhana (2) failed. India lost three wickets for 28 runs. Jemima Rodrigues (43) and Harmanpreet Kaur (52) supported India in that order. Harman’s departure changed the course of the match. In the end, India lost by five runs. With this defeat, India once again faced disappointment in the World Cup.
