Coach of the India B. WV Raman Women’s Cricket Team has not lost his composure despite the heartbreaking loss of the blue in the final of the T20 World Cup in Australia earlier this month to the hosts, who awarded the kangaroo his fifth title in seven tournaments. On the contrary, the former Indian outdoor player believes that the young team can dominate the cricket world in the long run.
The Indians remained unbeatable throughout the tournament and even beat the mighty Australia in their first match. But in a very important final they failed and lost the game in 85 sets. In 2017 the Indian women also lost the World Cup final to England in 50 matches, only nine times.
WV Raman wants to follow the Australianmodel.
I’m trying to create a team that plays together for six to eight years and dominates the world of cricket. That’s what makes the Australian team so special. As a team they played many finals together and therefore they dominated the World Cup, said 54-year-old Raman the Times of India.
Her performance gave everyone more self-confidence and showed that Indian cricket can also be the dominant force in the category of women. They are young and their achievements have been important in inspiring the girls, especially those about to decide for or against the female cricket profession, he added.
Young people like Shafali Verma and Punam Yadav deserved praise for their achievements in the T20 World Cup, and when the first one burst into tears after losing the final, Raman was among many to cheer them up, saying it was a bad day at the office and nothing to be ashamed of.
I just told them it was nothing to be ashamed of, Raman said. On the contrary, they have every reason to keep a cool head, because they have achieved a good result in the light of a great opportunity. At some point it can go wrong, even if it’s for the best. It wasn’t the right day for us, and that’s all it was.
The Indian players, however, experienced a shocking homecoming when they were awaited at Mumbai airport after Down Ander’s return.
