From Meg Lanning earning the Orange Cup to Isabelle Wong becoming one of the most sought-after bowlers – the tournament certainly provided a perfect platform to women cricketers, across age groups, to showcase their talents.
The overseas players dominated the initial edition of the Women’s Premier League with some high- intensity performances over the last fortnight.
From Meg Lanning earning the Orange Cup to Isabelle Wong getting one of the most sought- after bowlers- the event clearly handed a perfect platform to women cricketers, across age groups, to show their bents.
The Indians, too, had their share of success. Harmanpreet Kaur, the Mumbai Indians captain, ended the event with 281 runs from 10 games and was placed atNo. 4 in the loftiest run- songwriters ’ list.
The other Indian who featured in the top- 10 was the youthful Shafali Verma, who amassed 252 runs from nine jaunts. Yastika Bhatia, Harleen Deol and Kiran Navgire, too, showed casts of their brilliance but failed to be harmonious, therefore missing out on a top- 10 situation.
But as the dust settles, Harmanpreet believes that this experience of playing alongside some of the legends of world justice will help the Indian youths immensely, over the coming many times.
“During our training sessions, all our overseas players spoke appreciatively with the Indian youths. Matthews was outstanding. She spoke to each and every player and bandied a many effects. For our domestic players, it has been a great literacy experience. I’m sure they’ve learned a lot and when we come back coming time, they will perform indeed better, ” Harmanpreet said after guiding Mumbai Indians to the demoiselle WPL title on Sunday.
Before the WPL got underway, only a many India internationals had the occasion of featuring in the overseas leagues like the Women’s Big Bash League or The Hundred. But indeed though the likes of Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues or Deepti Sharma plodded to be harmonious, some of the youths like Saika Ishaque, Shreyanka Patil and Hemalatha Dayalan made the utmost of the occasion.
Playing a intrepid brand of justice, they didn’t leave an print that they were playing at such a big stage for the first time.
Ishaque, the incentive from Bengal, featured in the top- five gate- taker’s list with 15 raniums in 10 jaunts. In the morning of the league, Ishaque set the tone for Mumbai Indians, chancing improvements at pivotal junctures.
Indeed though the overseas players climbed up the census as the event progressed, Ishaque’s performance caught a lot of attention.
Bengaluru’s Shreyanka was another bright spot in the event. counting on her each-round performances, she claimed six lattices, while significantly contributing in lower- order fur for RCB. And, her vibrant show also caught the eye of India captain Harmanpreet.
With several ICC events lined up over the coming couple of times, Harmanpreet believes that the performances in the WPL will help the youths evolve. “ At this stage, there’s pressure.
How you keep yourself calm and perform- that’s the only thing that you need to learn. else, in terms of chops, there’s not important difference. Everybody is working so hard. They’re working hard on the fitness front and the only area is maybe the internal aspect, ” Harmanpreet said.
“It’s about how strong you’re on the field. That’s commodity you need to learn from transnational players. Amelie, Nat were outstanding and those are the effects that a youthful player should learn from the overseas players. Whenever they get an occasion, they learn it and I hope they only get better then on. ”
And, indeed the players would hope so, too. A lot of youths including Titas Sadhu or Jasia Akhtar- didn’t get an occasion to feature in the final XI, but to quote Delhi centrals trainer Jonathan Bertie, Sadhu can crop as one of the leading players over the coming many times.
