There are many techniques in cricket that can be achieved by learning and implementing them. If you understand the intricacies of the game and then present the game, you will definitely get success. But if you don’t do that, you will fail.
Although it is true that the competition says that the deer came to win, it is also important to lose by presenting a good game.
But it is a shameful act to just play the game and pull the strings and lose. It involves a flurry of players, a scandal of coaching, and the whole team seems to be moving in a negative direction. This makes it possible for the team to go into the abyss. Something similar has happened to our women’s Indian cricket team.
We all know that in this year’s Women’s World Cup 2022, the Indian women’s cricket team had to lose, and very soon the Indian team had to withdraw from this important match.
If there are many reasons for this, it is because of the negligence in the game and the error in presenting the game. The Indian women’s team has often been frustrated by the lack of technicalities. Therefore, it is very important for these women players to improve their game in time.
Technically 1054 dot balls seem to have made the team’s situation worse. So first of all the players have to practice this technique. Now, what exactly are these 1054 Dot Balls?
So dot balls mean no ball no run or a ball from which a run is not scored. In the matches, the Indian Women’s team has faced 1054 dot balls in 7 games. Somewhere the figure seems to be bigger and the team needs to work on it. Apart from the old batting templates, frequent breaks and alterations, and lack of athletics – these are just some of the reasons why Team India’s campaign for the Women’s World Cup came to an early end.
The BCCI may be blamed in the past for not focusing on women’s cricket and they must speak out but the problem is beyond them. The unfortunate no-ball against South Africa may be blamed by India for their expulsion, but it also contributed to their own downfall. Outdated batting templates, an alarming number of dot balls, frequent changes in the playing XI, lack of athleticism, and a lackluster captaincy have all contributed to the team’s struggles and acceptance of defeat. Therefore, the BCCI needs to pay attention to women’s cricket.
India lost the World Cup due to differences in attitude and perception also. The team has played 1054 dot balls in a total of seven technical matches. In other words, they played almost three ODIs without scoring a run. Australia, the dominant team in the tournament, used 959 dot balls in the round-robin league, which is 95 less than India. In terms of power hitting.
In actuality, India tops the list with six hits. The Indian batsmen hit 15 sixes, which is the highest in the tournament. But other scoring shots were found in the air. Anjum Chopra, who was a commentator with the host broadcaster during the World Cup, feels that Indian batsmen need to improve their skills and should focus on professional batting with extra practice.
While discussing Indian Women’s cricket, Anjum said-
“The method is straightforward. Decrease the percentage of dot balls. The Indian team plays a lot of dot ball and relies heavily on dead-defense shots. My guess is that the things that Team India should work on are strike rotation, playing with soft hands, running between wickets, dropping the ball, and instant singles. These skills must be practiced and learned very seriously. The Indian team has stroke players, but they cannot rotate strikes as they wish. Whether they are setting goals or pursuing them, that skill should be incorporated whether they are setting the target or chasing,”
