In this match, Shreyanka Patil gave 40 runs in four overs and took only one wicket.
Australia women’s team defeated the Indian team by 6 wickets in the second T20 match played at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on January 7. In this match, all the players from Australia women’s team performed very well and played an important role in the victory of their team. Not only this, after the second T20, now Australia women’s team has tied 1-1 in the three-match T20 series.
In this match, young player Shreyanka Patil from the Indian women’s team failed to leave her mark. In this match, he gave 40 runs in four overs and took only one wicket. Let us tell you, Australia women’s team needed 15 runs in the last two overs to win this match but Shreyanka Patil gave away 17 runs in the 19th over of the match and Australia easily won this match.
Before this over, the young player had given 23 runs in three overs. Indian women’s team captain Harmanpreet Kaur found Shreyanka Patil’s performance very poor and reprimanded the young bowler.
If Shreyanka Patil had bowled well in her last over, things might have been different: Harmanpreet Kaur
After the match was over, Harmanpreet Kaur said at the presentation, ‘If Shreyanka Patil had bowled well in her last over, perhaps things could have been different. We were continuously taking wickets in the middle overs and we were also getting chances which was a very positive thing. He still desperately needs changes in his game.
We have played a lot of such matches but there are many young faces in the team. I have full hope that all the players will want to improve their game. Taking cognizance of Harmanpreet’s comments about her teammate, former Indian fast bowler Doda Ganesh criticized the Indian captain for throwing Shreyanka under the bus. To this the captain of the Indian women’s team replied, ‘It is not right to throw a 19 year old girl under the bus.’
