Richa Ghosh has earned well-deserved praise for taking down a formidable Australian bowling attack at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday night and helping the Indian women to one of their biggest wins.
“She has the potential to become (one of the most dangerous batsmen in international women’s cricket),” Australian captain Alyssa Healy said on Tuesday. He said, ‘He probably didn’t have the same impact in WBBL as he is having in this series. out there.”
Richa has been included in the inaugural Women’s Under-19 World Cup to be held in South Africa next month, along with her senior teammate Shafali Verma. He said, ‘Right now we are only thinking about this series. “Once we get involved with the U-19 camp, we will look at those things. There will be no problem in messing with the team as both Shafali and I have already met the players.
Looking back at her heroics in the second T20I, she said she had made a promise to her senior partner Smriti Mandhana that she would finish the job when the left-handed opener got out. Richa said, “He told me to do it.” “I always enjoy batting with senior players (like Smriti and Harmanpreet Kaur). I enjoyed batting with Mithali Raj in ODIs as well. From him we can learn how to build innings.
She said that she had worked hard on her game and fitness during the Covid-19 break. “I also worked on my hitting and mental strength,” said the wicketkeeper-batsman, who idolises MS Dhoni.
He said, ‘I am watching how he ends the innings.’ “He is an inspiration and so is my father, who also used to play cricket. I would like to meet Dhoni one day.
The third T20 match of the five-match series will start at 7 pm on Wednesday at the Brabourne Stadium here.
