“We all are very excited. We are playing a final after almost 12 years. We are looking forward to playing some good cricket,” Goswami said, after India’s stupendous performance against Australia in the semifinal. “Lord’s has a lot of history. Very special moment for all of us. We didn’t perform the way we wanted to perform in the last three World Cups, so this is a moment we are going to cherish for some time.”
“Whatever has happened in the past is history. It’s a fresh game. As a team we are going to enjoy this moment and we want to do well. We just want to focus on the process without worrying about the result. Because this is going to be a rare moment,” she added.
“It’s going to be a privilege for us. I have played at Lord’s before and we’ve got good memories there. We beat England at Lord’s. So we are looking forward to the final,” said Veda.
“I think England should be under pressure because they are playing at home. For us, we have nothing to lose. We are going to their territory and if we can pull it off, nothing better than that,” she concluded.
Going to play our final at Lord’s is a special feeling for any cricketer, let alone a World Cup final. Come Sunday (July 23), it’s going to be just the second time for India in the summit clash of ICC Women’s World Cup, and this time, it’s at the Home of Cricket.
