Just like the men of the 90s
India Women cricketer Snehal Pradhan writes on her blog that the current women's side resembles the India men's team of the 1990s, which was "famously talented and infamously inconsistent." She hopes that Mithali Raj's team can turn it around just like the men did in the 2000s.
The doldrums of the '90s must give way to the genesis of a new fate. The ingredients are all there. Younger, fitter players have been proving their international credentials over the past couple of years, and some prodigal talent is bubbling under the surface. Only a catalyst is required. Just as the men went from being a one man batting line up to a team with a big three and a big four, the women have the quality to find themselves similarly positioned.
