Cricket news - NZ series an opportunity to bring the focus back on cricket: Mithali

"What has happened has happened and we should move on. Cricket has taught me to move on."

India Women's tour of New Zealand has more context than what is visible to the eye. This is not only India's first visit to the country since 2006, where they try to lift themselves from the miserable fifth position on the ICC Women's Championship points table, but it is also a new beginning for you as a team. A new head coach, WV Raman, and Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur back in the same locker room after the sparring over Ramesh Powar challenges, but also opportunities.

"What happened, happened and we should move on. Cricket has taught me to move on," Mithali said on Tuesday (22. January). "I'm definitely looking forward to the series, because it is very important to again focus on the sport and the performance in the team and this is an opportunity for us.

"As a professional cricket player, everyone understands what it takes to play at the international level. Are you here as a representative for our country in the one-dayers and you would want to do your best and you would want the team to play together as a unit, because that is what it will be."

Mithali and Jhulan Goswami are the only two players with previous experience in new Zealand, but the India captain is confident that they have a team skilled enough to make up for the lack of experience. "Right now, all of us are in good shape, whether Smriti Mandhana, or Harmanpreet Kaur or the young Jemimah Rodrigues, who is running under the. We have very good middle-order, as well as in relation to Hemalatha and Deepti Sharma, an all-rounder," Mithali. "You have to get the bowling into the picture. So, overall, I think that all have played them at some point or other, a game-winning performance for the team. And the team I definitely didn't on me fully, but as an experienced dough, the responsibility to the batting-lead unit.

"All of us come from match practice, whether it's a domestic season or a couple of girls from the WBBL. We came a week early, the conditions adjusted. We had a game a practice. The girls are in good shape, because we had a couple of outdoor nets and we are already looking forward to the series."

India had yet to record the big trips, but Mithali thinks that India has come a long way, and to see their performance in the last ICC tournaments for all. "Our campaigns, be it at the world Cup or the T20 WC, it's a tour has been removed. We conditions in the West Indies, now touring new Zealand, have played in England. Girl prepared; most of them, though for the conditions in new Zealand you are inexperienced, perhaps, because, otherwise, the team is an experienced lot that has for 4-5 years. I don't think that we are "restless tourists'."

New Zealand as a Cricket venue is different, because the small plant, which plays a massive a role in the lines and lengths they have to bowl, and then there is the wind factor. The pitches are not too much, but Mithali is confident that there will be more to your Spinner, than just the ability to spin-deliveries on the bat. "We definitely have the most acclimatization look at the conditions on early, so it doesn't make that much of a threat, if we said on the field," Mithali. "We do not believe that there is much to be on the ground dimensions, but the wind is a factor, whether it is batting or bowling or fielding. We were talking about him. Not the top what is on our mind, but we will try the training and to out maneuver the conditions and the best out of him.

"Spinners have always been our strength. You have to bowl in different conditions and on different tracks, and you know how to bowl in the areas, if you don't get that much off. It is a challenge for you, but this is where the experience counts."

The last couple of years is a great advertisement for women's cricket, and this series will go a long way in the presentation, where it is, especially with the ready-made, the attention of the concurrent India men's tour of New Zealand. "The series is really important," New Zealand captain Amy Satterthwaite, said, "not only in terms of the men, but also in relation to the present, where we show as a team in the situation to the whole country, and the world of cricket, we, and more and more women are playing cricket out there are more and more. We have seen in the last couple of years, it is to strength of strength around the globe, so it's exciting to be in your own backyard, and present it."
