India vs Bangladesh World Cup 2022 Live Streaming: When and where to watch

India Women vs Bangladesh Women INDW vs BANW World Cup 2022 Live Streaming: An inconsistent India will have no room for errors when they take on a spirited Bangladesh in their must-win ICC Women’s World Cup league match on Tuesday. India’s problems have compounded over the course of their campaign, which has seen them win two games and lose three, including back-to-back defeats against England and Australia. The heavy fluctuations in the batting performance was already a concern and with the ease Australia chased down a record 278 in the previous game, the Indian bowlers also need to step up. The bowling looked rather flat against the Aussies, who attacked and put pressure from ball one. The move to drop an extra bowling option in Deepti Sharma and bring back batter Shafali Verma also d...

Women’s World Cup: Important to continue playing like we did against West Indies, says Harmanpreet Kaur

Delighted by India’s performance in the win against West Indies, vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur said the team is looking for a repeat performance against a struggling England side in their ICC Women’s World Cup league match here on Wednesday. India had dished out a splendid all-round performance against an in-form West Indies side to notch up a dominating 155-run win in their previous outing. “I think for us, (it is) very important that the way we performed in the last game we continue that, rather than thinking about what is (are) your negatives and what is (are) your positive points,” Kaur said at the pre-match media conference. Kaur and opener Smriti Mandhana had starred with the bat, smashing twin centuries while sharing a 184-run stand against West Indies before the bowlers sealed t...

Jhulan Goswami becomes highest wicket taker in women’s WC history

Veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami on Saturday surpassed yet another milestone in her illustrious 22-year-old career by becoming the all-time highest wicket-taker in the history of the ICC Women’s World Cup. With 40 scalps in her kitty, Goswami has surpassed Australia’s Lynette Fullston, who took 39 wickets during her career spanning six year from 1982 to 1988. Goswami achieved the feat by dismissing Anisa Mohammed in the 36th over of the innings with West Indies chasing a mammoth target of 318 set by India. 🚨 RECORD ALERT 🚨 Wicket No. 4⃣0⃣ in the WODI World Cups for @JhulanG10! 🔝 🙌 What a champion cricketer she has been for #TeamIndia ! 👏 👏 #CWC22 | #WIvIND Follow the match ▶️ https://t.co/ZOIa3L288d pic.twitter.com/VIfnD8CnVR — BCCI Women (@BCCIWomen) March 12, 2022 Goswami, thus, l...

Team India ticked all the boxes in their splendid 155-run win over West Indies to bring their campaign back on track at the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup in Hamilton on Saturday.

ICC Women’s World Cup: Indian batters need to raise their game against West Indies

India’s under-performing top-order will be keen to display way more intent to bring the team’s campaign back on track when it squares off against a dangerous West Indies in the third league game of the ICC Women’s World Cup on Saturday. Currently placed fifth after a demoralising 62-run loss to New Zealand, India would like to get back to winning ways as back-to-back defeat can cause loss in momentum, especially when they are playing one game after another on the bounce. The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, the young Yastika Bhatia and all-rounder Deepti Sharma were all criticised for not getting a move-on against New Zealand in India’s chase of 261 and despite Harmanpreet Kaur’s 62-ball-71, the team ended up being outplayed by 62 runs. It is understood that Shafali Verma, despit...

West Indies should not feel disgraced: Kieron Pollard

They might have been handed a 0-3 clean sweep in the T20I series but West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard said his team shouldn’t feel disgraced as the scoreline is not an indication of the fight put up by them during the three-match rubber against India. Suryakumar Yadav came up with an explosive 65 and was backed up by a spirited bowling effort by the seamers as West Indies fell short by 17 runs in their chase of 185 in the final T20I here on Sunday. “Yes we lost 3-0 but the guys put their hands up and gave a good account of themselves.

Rahul Dravid on Wridhhiman Saha: ‘He deserved honesty and clarity’

The first question that Rahul Dravid faced at the post-match presser after India’s T20 series win was on Wridhhiman Saha. The head coach reacted with sarcasm before going into the crux of the matter. “Thanks for congratulating us for winning this T20 series,” Dravid said before commenting: “I’m actually not hurt at all, because I have deep respect for Wridhhiman Saha and his achievements, his contribution to Indian cricket. My conversation with him actually came from that place. I think he deserved honesty and he deserved clarity. These are conversations I constantly have with players. I don’t expect players to always like messages or to agree with everything that I have to say about them. That’s not how it works.” India secured back-to-back clean-sweeps in the limited-overs series agai...

India vs West Indies 3rd T20I: Suryakumar, Venkatesh shine as India seal 3-0 sweep | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: Indian seamers fired in unison after Suryakumar Yadav's belligerent fifty as the hosts coasted to a series-sweeping 17-run win over the West Indies in the third and final T20I here on Sunday. After Deepak Chahar limped off the field after failing to complete the third over due to a hamstring injury, Harshal Patel (3/22), Venkatesh Iyer (2/23 from 2.1 overs) and Shardul Thakur (2/33) performed their tasks impressively to defend India's 184/5. Wicket-keeper batter Nicholas Pooran continued his fine form slamming a third successive fifty (61 off 47 balls; 8x4, 1x6) but it was not enough as West Indies managed just 167 for nine.

India vs West Indies T20I series: WI flattened by bench press

Yet again, the penultimate over of the game proved to be the clincher for India, like the second T20I. The West Indies kept losing wickets right from the start but didn’t ditch their merry hitting. After 18 overs, they were 154/7, chasing 185 for victory. Romario Shepherd was keeping the tourists in the game, even after Nicholas Pooran got out for a 47-ball 61. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was sitting out this game as India rotated their pacers and Harshal Patel bowled the 19th over. The first four balls accounted for four runs, including a couple of leg-byes. Then, the medium pacer dismissed Shepherd, deceiving the batsman with change of pace and Rohit Sharma taking a superb diving catch at extra cover. India’s catching in the third T20I was brilliant, two dropped chances notwithstanding. Patel’s...
