Although India lost the series 1-4, they were challenged in most of the games and only the personal ingenuity of the White Ferns players helped the hosts to capture the series.
The talent we got last year, we tried some young talents on the team, most of whom have shown the ability to play at this level like Richa (Ghosh), Shafali (Verma). Among the seamen are Magna Singh, Pooja Vastragar. They have all been given good playing time and that series helped them and me to find out where the captaincy fits in the team structure, ”Mitali said in a conversation with the captains organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC). On Saturday.
Mithali said he was satisfied with his form and wanted to continue scoring during the match. India will confront the most outstanding opponents Pakistan in their first match on March 6.

The young talents on the team today, I tell them you have not had the experience of the last World Cup match, so Mithali said that this is a clean slate for you, all you have to do is enjoy your world cup match on the big stage.
I had a word with Yastika (Patiya) one day, I took her out for a coffee, we talked a little, she was a chat kid and asked me a lot of questions.
The only advice I would give to young players is to enjoy the big arena because if you accumulate pressure you and the team may not be playing the best you want to do in the ICC World Cup match as a great experience.
