India’s file within the shortest layout of the sport has left so much to want, specifically within the International Cup. They did succeed in the semi-final within the first two editions (2009 and 2010). Since then despite the fact that, they have got exited the event with out a win (2012), with two wins (2014) and with one in the newest version (2016).

The ODI facet then reached the general of the International Cup and the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana joined Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami in being recognised names within the girls’s setup.
Within the contemporary previous, they confronted unhappiness within the Asia Cup, shedding to Bangladesh within the last – the second one time within the event that the six-time champions had misplaced to the similar crew. However they adopted that up by means of thumping Sri Lanka Four-Zero.
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s largest headache might be the loss of an revel in within the bowling division. Jhulan Goswami not too long ago retired from T20Is and that leaves the green tempo trio of Arundhati Reddy, Pooja Vastrakar and Mansi Joshi at Harmanpreet’s disposal aside from go-to spinner Poonam Yadav.
