Recently, the BCCI has announced Indian team members who will represent the country in the upcoming Women’s World Cup tournament 2022 which is going to be held at New Zealand in the month of March. In the team, there are 15 women players have been included in which few are experienced and few are new comers.
The BCCI gets stuck in controversy as the star batsman Jemimah Rodrigues and all-rounder player Shikha Pande have been excluded from the team. For this, cricket fans and followers are questioning on selection committee. Alike these players Poonam Raut, an experienced player off the team who had shown her talent and presented the best game last year in 6 one-day matches. She has scored the 295 runs consisting one century and 2 half centuries.
She shared her feeling of disappointment on social media twitter that despite of being honest and put all the efforts to reach to the success for the team and for the country, she got ignored this time.
Further she added that she has played 6 one-day matches in 2021 and have achieved the target of 295 runs with the 73.75 strike rate.
Experienced players have to stay out of the team
Although the Poonam Raut is not in the team and got very depressed with the selectors decision. but she didn’t forget to wish luck to all the 15 players for the world Cup tournament. The Women’s Indian team has great fast bowlers and everyone has shown their glimpse of excellency in the last 7 one day matches.
Jemimah Rodrigues has secured a great hundred, still she didn’t get placed in the team for World Cup. 32 years Shikha Pande has played total 55 one-day matches, but she is also not as a part of the team. Renuka Singh from Himachal Pradesh and all-rounder Meghna Singh frm UP have been selected for the World Cup Tournament 2022. Renuka hasn’t debuted in one-day and Meghna has played only 3 one-day matches. When BCCI announced the team, everyone was in surprise that the several new and raw players are being the part of the team and experienced players are not going to represent the nation.
World Cup is such a prestigious and important tournament for a player and it is a dream of players to be a spokesperson for such a big event and competition. It is the pride for player who serve the country since long time. So, each and every player was hoping and waiting to beat the ground with sixes and fours in World Cup. But its unfortunate that some truly talented players have to face distress. But the players have crossed their fingers for the country to win and wishing best for the team to perform well.
