Mithali stresses on the need to be more consistent ahead of WC


India skipper Mithali Raj has stressed on the need to be “more consistent” in the areas they worked on over the last 12 months besides talking about the scope of improvement in her own batting ahead of the Women’s World Cup in March-April.

To cap off the “best possible” preparation for the ODI World Cup amid COVID times, India will play a five-match series against hosts New Zealand, starting February 11. The World Cup will begin in the same country from March 4.

India introduced plenty of fresh faces in England and Australia. The likes of Sneh Rana, who made a successful comeback into the team, Meghna Singh, Yastika Bhatia and Richa Ghosh were tried in those two series.

Top-order batter Yastika, wicketkeeper-batsman Richa and pacer Meghna made their ODI debuts Down under and all of them made an impact.  Though India lost the three-match series 1-2, they were able to push the mighty Australians to the limit.

Speaking to PTI from Vijaywada where she is training, Mithali looked back at the positives from the two tours and what her side needs to do in New Zealand.

“We will definitely be looking to fix our combinations for the World Cup [in ODIs against New Zealand] and try out a few compositions and also get a little more consistent in the things that worked for us in the last year,” said the captain.
