Women's cricket

'Women's cricket on the right track'


Anjum Chopra, the Indian batsman, is set to become only the third women's cricketer to play in four World Cups. She chats with rediff.com's Bikash Mohapatra about the team's preparations for the tournament and the state of women's cricket in India.

This is also the first time the women's World Cup will be televised live. How does it feel? ... if a hundred countries get to watch women play internationally and if they get to watch a good standard, globally the game gets better. So I would, rather my team would, look at it as a plus point. Something that doesn't put pressure on us but something that encourages us to take the sport forward and get global recognition for women's cricket.
