Women’s T20 World Cup: In the Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup today i.e. on Monday, India will compete with the Ireland team. The team is now in a precarious position in terms of the points table, facing competition from West Indies and Pakistan for the second spot. After West Indies win on Sunday night, India just need to defeat Ireland Women team on Monday (February 20) to qualify for the semifinal.
With England almost securing their spot in the semi-finals after three consecutive wins, India must win their upcoming match against Ireland to stay in the race. Ireland, who have lost all three of their fixtures, will be playing for pride in their final match of the event.
India pacer Renuka Singh has a brilliant outing in the last match, picking up five wickets against England Women team. Renuka Singh said after the match that we always plays with a smile on her face. “Everyone wants me to enjoy myself, and that’s when I perform well too,” Renuka said after the game. “My nature is such that I smile and perform and it gives me confidence. The pitch was pretty good for pace bowling so maybe we conceded 10-15 runs extra. Things were in our favour but we knew it would be a competitive game against England.”
Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur has had a modest run with the bat in T20I cricket. In this T20 World Cup, she has only scored 53 runs, including a top-score of 33 against the West Indies. Can skipper Harmanpreet find some form with the bat against Ireland?
Team India is playing its last match in the group stage.
On February 18, Team India had to face defeat in front of England.
At the same time, Ireland’s team will also face India after facing defeat in the tournament.
Under the captaincy of Harmanpreet Kaur, Team India is one step away from reaching the semi-finals.
The match will start at 6.30 pm Indian time.
