India women cricket led by Harmanpreet Kaur will take on Barbados women at Edgbaston in their last group fixture from Group A in the Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022. Both the teams are tied on two points and this is a must-win game for teams to keep their CWG campaign alive. The match will be played on August 3.
India began their campaign by losing their opening game against Australia. It came down to their bowlers not keeping their nerves against the Aussies and ended up losing the game. They made a brilliant comeback against arch-rivals Pakistan and won the game by 8 wickets. Harmanpreet Kaur surpassed MS Dhoni with most wins as India’s T20I captain taking her tally to 42.
“We were quite positive. Even in the last game, we played good cricket in patches and everybody knew that today’s game was important for us as we would be able to carry the momentum into the next matches. The way our team played today, I was quite pleased. The only reason behind coming here is to win the gold medal and I am quite happy with today’s performance” Kaur said after India’s big win against Pakistan.
Barbados defeated Pakistan by 15 runs in their first game of the campaign and then lost to Australia as they were bowled out for just 64 runs. A win against Barbados would ensure India a semifinal spot in the group. The stage is set for the new generation of Indian women cricketers to script history in the absence of their veterans Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami.
Indians fans will be able to watch this tournament in English commentary on Sony TEN 1, Sony TEN 2, Sony TEN 4 and Sony SIX. Fans, who prefer to watch matches in Hindi commentary, will have to switch to Sony TEN 3. The matches will be also televised live on DD Sports.
