Mithali Raj Talks of the Roadway to WC 2022

“We have played three best teams since March and it has given us good preparation. Players have played domestic cricket and also in the Women’s Big Bash so they are getting game time which is the most important thing. We are getting to play in New Zealand before World Cup which is also good,” said Raj earlier.

“There were not enough expectations back then. Now in 2021 players have got experience and got a lot of exposure with the T20 leagues. Overall, we have young players but they have got enough exposure. It is just of matter of gelling well as a team,” she added.
