“All players understand the importance of having two and three dimensional players now. Players with only one side to their game are not as desired in today’s game.”
Women’s cricket in India has made huge strides ever since its breakout moment came as being runners-up in the 2017 ODI World Cup in England. The question now arises is, what more needs to be done to further the development of women’s cricket in the country?
In her column for the ICC, former India captain Mithali Raj pointed towards two things which nations would need to up their growth in women’s cricket: multi-dimensional players and more fast bowlers. “All players understand the importance of having two and three dimensional players now. Players with only one side to their game are not as desired in today’s game.”
