The newly-elected captain of the women’s cricket team makes some bold revelations about herself which shows that captaincy comes naturally to her. Now such statements such as previously stated, really needs courage because as long as you are not playing well the above statement seems valid but if the opposite starts to happen then the same statement can become problematic.
Anyway, we have no doubt on Harmanpreet Kaur’s abilities but it remains to be seen how she performs in the ODI series starting today. The ODI series we are talking about here is scheduled against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka recently locked horns against India in the 3-match T20I series but were unfortunately snatched 2-1 by the Kaur-led side.

Now the countdown has started for the ODI series against Sri Lanka which is to be held from July 1 to July 7.
Surprisingly, Harmanpreet Kaur from the women’s Indian cricket team will make her debut as captain from July 1, and Jasprit K Bumrah from the men’s Indian cricket team will make his debut as captain on the same day. The only difference between the two newly appointed captains will be, Kaur will open it up with an ODI while Bumrah will go through the Test against England today, the fifth Test match rescheduled from last year.
Coming back to Kaur, during the press conference she had no problem handling a team as captain for which, what exactly she said, understand it in her in own words,
“When I’m leading, I feel I am more involved in the game. It always gives me a lot of confidence. Captaincy is something that comes naturally to me when I’m on the field. Over time, when you have a lot of years of leading [the team], things get easier. Right now, I don’t feel extra pressure on me.”
Well, the confidence seems good from Kaur, but now let the time say what comes out of the ODI leg.
But when in the press conference when she was asked about her fitness and stuff, she said that they have good coaches in the form of Hrishikesh Kanitkar and mental coach Dr MugdhaBavarewho have always been very helpful to the team. Currently, Ms. Bavare is not on tour with the team, but Kaur hoped to see her again in the coming days.
