Captain Harmanpreet hopes U-19 team’s victory will inspire them to win the World Cup title
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur roared
Said- Under-19’s victory will inspire us to win the World Cup
New Delhi. Indian women’s team captain Harmanpreet Kaur believes that the success of the Under-19 team in South Africa will give her team extra motivation which will come in handy in the T20 World Cup starting on February 10. India’s senior women’s team has failed to win the ICC global title now and then. The Women’s Under-19 team defeated England in the final of the T20 World Cup played for the first time. Harmanpreet wrote in the International Cricket Council’s column, “We have senior players as well as young talent like Shefali Verma and Richa Ghosh, who are fresh from the victory of the Indian team in the Under-19 World Cup.” He now has enough experience of playing cricket at the top level in this team.
The captain said, “We have depth in batting and variety in bowling. The arrival of Renuka Singh in fast bowling has brought sharpness and is something that the top teams need.” The Indian team is playing a tri-series in South Africa before the World Cup. Harmanpreet said, “I am sure that this tournament (World Cup) to be played in South Africa will be very competitive. Australia’s team will be a strong contender for victory, but other teams are also not far behind. In this we will get to see some close and some great matches.

The Indian team had lost the five-match series 1-4 to Australia on their home soil in December. Harmanpreet said, “We lost the series 1-4 but the atmosphere during this series was very exciting. Thousands of spectators came to the stadium in Mumbai. We have faith in our ability and we understand that we have to raise our level further to be remembered as the Indian team that has defeated the top teams of the world.
