Our ideology in white-ball cricket needs to change, may be bring fresh players to mould: Powar


Indian girls’s cricket group coach Ramesh Powar stated an “ideological change” is required for the facet to rework right into a “fearless unit” in white-ball video games as he mirrored on the back-to-back collection defeats to England.

Indian girls misplaced each WODIs and WT20I collection, which ended on Wednesday, by similar 1-2 margins and coach Powar known as for a shift in mindset or some fresh middle-order batters who can be “moulded” as per group ethos.

Save skipper Mithali Raj, whose strike-rate can be not essentially the most spectacular, others like Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia, and Punam Raut have struggled.

“Mithali is batting well but we need support from at least one more batter to put pressure on opponents in middle order after Powerplays,” Powar stated on the finish of the collection.

However, he feels that an ideological shift needs time and may’t occur in a single day.

“We have to be fearless. I can’t force them in first series. They have been playing with some ideology and we can’t make drastic changes. We have to assess what suits them,” the previous India off-spinner stated.

“To get them out of it (current slow batting in middle overs) (we have to) convince them and to do that, it takes a lot of communication. Fearless is how modern cricket will be played.”

Powar admitted that moulding efforts haven’t labored thus far.

“There are two ways. Either mould them (current lot) or draft in other middle order players to up the ante. As simple as that,” Powar was prepared to learn the riot act.

“This time we tried a few combinations and it didn’t work out and going forward, we might try something new, bring new players, might mould them.”

Powar indicated that until the 50-over World Cup in New Zealand, he would attempt to make do with out there assets. Although he didn’t title anybody however he appeared disillusioned that save Jhulan Goswami, no different tempo bowlers had been picked.

“Till the World Cup, we need to find a way to get a middle order where we can say that they can surely get us 250. It’s up to all the stakeholders. The captain, the vice captain, selectors and myself, we will discuss these things.”

“We need to enhance the fast bowling department,” he added, saying: “We are only looking at Jhulan to perform. There has to be some support for her.”

The coach is comfortable that Harmanpreet Kaur, in the final two T20 video games, was in her components.

“It is pleasing for everyone. Her scoring runs matters to each and everybody. The way she batted, we can see that flair and going forward, we will see a different Harmanpreet.”

“In the final two innings, she regarded just like the outdated Harman. She will now play The Hundred and get recreation time and that’s what we like as a group. Game time. That’s the place England was forward and we lacked.

“They played domestic cricket and we didn’t have too many practice games.”
