“They’re your greatest bowlers; hopefully, they’ll bounce back.” – Jhulan Goswami on India’s bowling unit’s poor performance


Jhulan Goswami, a veteran bowler, believes the Indian bowling unit would improve as the ODI series against England unfolds. The Indian women’s cricket team defeated by eight wickets in the inaugural One-Day International (ODI) at Bristol, with the English team having 91 balls to spare.

Despite India’s poor score of 201, the seamers were expected to make life difficult for the England batsmen. While Jhulan Goswami made an early impression by dismissing Lauren Winfield-Hill, Shikha Pandey and Pooja Vastrakar struggled to make an impression.

Nonetheless, Jhulan believes that their present seam assault is the strongest they have, and he expects them to thrive with more match experience.

Jhulan Goswami, speaking at a press conference on the eve of the second ODI, said:

“We need to make a comeback as a bowling team. We need to return as a group. It’s not about the person. Individually, you will not be able to attain significant goals. We’ve talked about a number of stuff, and maybe we’ll figure it out and return with a bang.” We must have faith in these players. They are your most talented bowlers. They are capable of doing so. They’re returning to international cricket after a long break, and they’re hoping to make a big comeback.

The hosts’ Tamsin Beaumont was the hero of the show, striking a run-a-ball 87* to lead them to a stunning victory and a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.

“The weather in England is different, and that plays a huge impact.” Jhulan Goswami (Jhulan Goswami)

Jhulan Goswami, a senior member of the bowling unit, revealed how she goes about guiding the other seamers.

The 38-year-old emphasized how the weather in England has influenced the bowlers’ bowling strategies.

“The conversation we’re having (with the pace unit) is quite broad. Which region will we bowl in, and what length will we bowl? The weather in England is much different. The weather has a significant impact on the ball’s seaming and swinging.” The pitch is different when we play in the sunlight. We play on flat tracks all around the world, and the bowler has very little to do. I simply share my ideas with them. All you have to do is bowl.

In the second One-Day International, which begins tomorrow in Taunton, India will hope that its bowling and batting units can work in tandem.
