“I feel an excessive amount of is being comprised of it. The control (captain Harmanpreet Kaur, trainer Ramesh Powar, vice-captain Smriti Mandhana and selector Sudha Shah) made the verdict of now not converting a successful mixture and that backfired. If India had gained the sport, I’m positive no one would have wondered their determination,” Edulji, a former India captain, informed PTI.

The ladies now have a New Zealand excursion arising, they will have to transfer on from this loss and paintings tougher on their sport,” she mentioned. Edulji additionally made it transparent that no CoA assembly has been deliberate but with captain Harmanpreet and Mithali.
“It was once a variety subject. There is not any want for the CoA to intrude. In the event that they need to have a phrase with us, then that may be checked out. We best step in when it’s required, find it irresistible was once when Tushar Arothe stepped down,” she mentioned.
