Indian Skipper Mithali Raj has been in prime form throughout the tournament. She has led the team from the front as India sit on top of the points table with a win in every match. However, she said that the team needs to work on building partnerships so that they avoid can what happened against Pakistan.
Mithali Raj-led side though stood on the winning podium against Pakistan after winning the match by 95 runs as they managed to defend 169 in the process but losing wickets in quick succession became a cause of concern for the side.
The Indian captain said that losing wickets at regular interval is a cause of concern which creates a lot of pressure for the team.
“We definitely will look into the fact that we don’t lose wickets back-to-back because that puts a lot of pressure on the incoming batters as well as the team. We need to work on our partnerships as batters.”
“In terms of bowling, the spinners have been doing well, (against Pakistan) the Pacers looked better than the last two games so it depends on which wicket we play on against Sri Lanka. If it’s a fresh wicket, then we have different plans for it,” she said.
Mansi Joshi came into the side for her first game of the tournament and took two for nine as India maintained their perfect record.
“Because Mansi was playing her first game of the World Cup (against Pakistan) and it was a situation where we needed wickets and not to lose runs in the first 10 overs, it was a crucial situation for us,” she added.
