Just like the men of the 90s

Snehal Pradhan writes that the current India Women's side resembles the men's team of the 1990s, which was "famously talented and infamously inconsistent", and hopes that the women can turn it around too

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.
