World Cup is like an Olympic event for us: Jhulan Goswami
India’s 15-member team has been announced for the Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022, which is going to start in New Zealand on March 4. Veteran bowler Jhulan Goswami will be seen leading the team’s bowling attack. During the conversation with WINS, the veteran player said,
As cricketers, we don’t play Olympics. For us, the World Cup is like an Olympic event. You spend four years preparing to reach a certain level. When the mega event finally arrives you just enjoy and express yourself there.
It is difficult in New Zealand between strong winds
The Indian women’s team has to play a series of 5 ODIs and 1 T20 match against hosts New Zealand (INDW vs NZW) before the World Cup. This will help the team to understand the situation. Talking about this, Jhulan said that, batting and bowling on the swing taking pitch of New Zealand has to face a lot of challenges in all areas.
Nothing is going to be easy in New Zealand as the wind plays a big role here. When you start taking run-ups in bowling, sometimes you are not able to run fast. In batting, if you start tapping the bat, the bat starts moving.
