Kudos Team India

In the recent past we heard about the exploits about Men’s cricket team winning matches at home and abroad after Virat Kohli took over reins of captaincy from M S Dhoni.  Now the women’s cricket team has done the nation proud by winning the Asia Cup T-20 title for the sixth time. BCCI President readily acknowledged the efforts of Mithali Raj’s side in a clinical victory over arch rivals Pakistan. With a scintillating innings of 73 not out, Mithali Raj sealed the show in favour of the Indian side. A score of 120 plus in Women’s T-20 tournament is a boon, unless the opposition is from Australia or England.  Pakistan side fell prey to the tactics of the side as Team India was on a roll at Bangkok. The team played to a plan bowled and fielded well to contain the opposition with this limited score. The new format helped the home side on a personal high winning the tournament twice in the 50 over format and for the second time in T20 format. Mithali Raj made it a high point in her career with a significant contribution with the bat and her rich experience saw the team sail past Pakistan side.
