WPL: Indian women’s head coach wishes to create pool of fast bowlers for T20 World Cup

With Jhulan Goswami retired, and Team India having moved on from Shikha Pandey, there is a void in the pace department.

The Women’s T20 World Cup is a little over six months away, and there are a few areas where Team India isn’t really ready. Fast bowling, for now, looks like that area for sure. Of course, there is Renuka Thakur, Titas Sadhu, and Pooja Vastrakar, but India would really need bigger pool, and head coach Amol Muzumdar is leaving no stone unturned, at the WPL, to do just that.

Hopes Pinned on WPL

“Four fast bowlers played the last series (against Australia). I want to create a pool of fast bowlers (from the WPL). It makes a lot of difference if you strengthen the bowling attack,” Muzumdar was quoted as saying ESPNCricinfo.

“I would want another pool of 20-25 players to create a bench strength for the Indian team,” he added.

On the other hand, Muzumdar was happy with the way the batting was progressing, especially Shafali Verma, S Meghana, and Richa Ghosh getting scores consistently.

“There is an upscale movement in India’s batters. The confidence from those two series against England and Australia is on display (here) because of how they performed there.”
