The Indian Women’s cricket team were on course to pull off a comfortable win over England, but let slip with nerves getting the better of them in the summit clash in the final, finishing with the runners-up tag at the ICC Women’s World Cup.
“The important thing is that nobody from the first day thought we would be a finalist,” Goswami said on Monday (July 24). “At this moment we must enjoy this journey, the whole team must enjoy the way we played, unfortunately this one was not to go our way.”
Shortcomings in fielding, strength and even temperament need to be addressed at the earliest for Indian women to take their game to the next level.
“In the games we’ve had people perform, individually, but when it comes to a group there are things that we can work on. We performed and started to believe in ourselves after that match (first game), and in each given day everybody tried to contribute, as a team we believed that if we did well we could do it our way,” she said.
