ICC Women’s World Cup 2017: Defeat should teach India that winning isn’t everything; it is the only thing

24th July 2017   ·   0 Comments

While Mithali Raj might want to kick herself for making only a half-hearted, lackadaisical attempt to avert the run out (she could have stretched or even dived in an attempt to reach the crease), the rest of the Indian women’s team need not be too gutted at the meltdown that led to the nine-run defeat in the World Cup final.

Indian teams, particularly the men, were never good at chasing. Of course there were glorious exceptions, like the record 406-run chase against West Indies by Sunil Gavaskar, GR Vishwanath, Mohinder Amarnath, Brijesh Patel and Anshuman Gaekwad. But that was over 40 years ago, in 1976.
