India, though, has struggled to put a competitive value in the tri-series underway in Australia, suffered back-to-back defeats against the hosts and England.
They are in a must-win situation against the hosts on Saturday. Even victory does not guarantee India a place in the final because it will depend on the outcome of the match between England and Australia.
In a column for the ICC, Harmanpreet wrote how women’s T20 cricket has come a long way in the last two years.
“It was not so long ago that the nominal value in T20 cricket is 120 or 130. Now, it is not enough. The team are looking much more confident and try to get a larger value on the board, “said Harmanpreet.
“This change in mindset, which means that the better performance across the board and the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 has the potential to revolutionize the game even further.”
The tournament starts in Australia on 21 February.
“If I look back in two years, the 50-over side India T20 good and we struggled. But in the last two years, we have emerged as very positive and the T20 team went to Australia.
“When you look at the other teams competing in the World Cup, they all looked in good shape ahead of the tournament. All teams have strengths – but so is ours. Our strength is spin, “said Haramanpreet.
He said that the tri-series will help the management team find the best combination for the T20 World Cup.
“Our bowlers are always looking wicket-taking deliveries and when we have our backs to the wall,” he said.
While the spinner has been doing the job for the team, batter, especially middler-order, it needs to up its game.
“We do not always manage to fulfill our potential as a team and win the game is always about how well you can execute your skills.
“In the last series win over South Africa and the West Indies, we play with our full potential and it helped us get a positive result. If we give 100 percent collectively, the results take care of themselves, “said the skipper.
Harmanpreet also promised that 16 years Richa Ghosh will get a game in the tri-series. India has only one league game left to try Ghosh, touted as the next big thing in cricket Shafali women shared appetizer Verma, who is also 16.
