Women’s World T20: Mithali’s exclusion raises questions after India’s semi-final loss

first_imgThe Indian cricket team lost the semi-final of Women’s World T20 on Friday but it was Mithali Raj being dropped from the playing XI that sent shockwaves among the fans.India won the toss and opted to bat and it was then that captain Harmanpreet Kaur announced that Mithali was not in the playing XI. She said that the Indian management had decided to back their winning combination.Mithali had not played India’s final group match against Australia, which they won by a massive 48 runs, because she was unwell. But her omission on Friday was the management’s decision and fans were not happy about it.Mithali had batted in two matches so far, had scored two half-centuries and had won two player-of-the-match awards. Her exclusion felt nothing short of bizarre to most.India vs England, Women’s World T20 Semis: Highlights | Report”It’s not a pitch where you can hit through the line and fetch boundaries.

This is what happens when you start to play god. she is tailor made for these kind of pitches and has one of the best records against England . #IndvEngaprajita bansal (@aprajita13) November 23, 2018Horrible Horrible display of batting, Never ever drop Mithali Raj, specially on such decks!!! #wt20Monica (@monicas004) November 23, 2018Also read – Women’s World T20: No regrets, says Harmanpreet Kaur after India’s semi-final defeatFans compared dropping Mithali Raj to leaving out MS Dhoni in big matches and some said that the experience of Mithali could have come handy for the Indian team.If India men plays Knockout,one would simply Play @msdhoni Coz any team in d world feels pressure against him,despite the form he’s in.Mithali Raj brings same to the table,n she was in sheer form unlike MS.This out of the box strategy has cost us maybe a trophy. #WWT20 #INDvENGSaurabh Tripathi (@BeingShubh55555) November 23, 2018India Women lost seven wickets in their last 27 balls today and this is where they needed the experience and calmness of Mithali Raj.#INDvENGUmang Pabari (@UPStatsman) November 23, 2018Some people also questioned the role and contribution of Veda Krishnamurthy in the team so far.Whats the think tank smoking??
