India Women need to improve their batting significantly. Their strike rotation has been a major problem in the recent past.

India Women’s T20 WC Strengths and Weakness : The Women’s T20 World Cup is quickly approaching, and each team is getting ready to give their best. In this year’s T20 world cup, ten teams are taking part. Today’s conversation will focus on the India Women’s Team. Let’s examine the advantages and disadvantages of the team.

India Women need to improve their batting significantly. Their strike rotation has been a major problem, but the think tank will also be concerned about their dot-ball rate. The Indian women’s batters devoured far too many deliveries against Australia in the most recent series, despite the fact that the number of boundaries has climbed.

T20 Women’s World Cup: Now let’s look into the Strengths and Weaknesses of the Indian women’s team leading up to the T20 World Cup 

Speaking of the team’s strengths, the batting lineup has Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur. But even though Richa Ghosh has shown flashes of brilliance, the player lacks experience, which could be a cause for concern. The team also lacks a reliable finisher.

Given that many players are known to struggle with playing spin, India’s spin-heavy squad can be used to their advantage, but it remains to be seen how the circumstances play out. The Indian bowling team will be able to trouble the hitters if the pitch does help the spinners.

Indian bowling is dominated by spinners from a bowling standpoint. Its arsenal includes both left- and right-arm spinners. Radha Yadav and Rajeshwari Gayakwad are sluggish left-arm bowlers, while Deepti Sharma is an off-spinner with a right arm. With her off spins, someone like Harmanpreet Kaur may be quite helpful.

A young Indian outfit will be helpful in terms of fielding. Deepti Sharma, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Smriti Mandhana are the team’s three strongest boundary riders and possess strong throwing arms.

Thanks to Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues, two southpaws, India’s batting has recently been on fire. The top four, which includes skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, 16, and 16-year-old Shafali Verma, will be crucial in determining whether India must chase down a challenging aim or put up a strong score.


India’s young and somewhat inexperienced pace department has suffered since veteran Jhulan Goswami resigned from international cricket. Shikha Pandey, a seasoned pacer, was unexpectedly added to the team as a result after over 15 months.

India will rely on Pandey’s expertise and T20 World Cup performance. The 33-year-old, whose swing bowling ability is her strength, soon settles into her rhythm and leads the pace unit.

Anjali Sarvani, a rookie left-arm pacer, and Renuka Singh, the team’s go-to bowler during the previous six months, have both been solid but inconsistent. 

The other bowlers are unable to provide Renuka, who has been doing remarkably well, with competent support. The South African pitches will favour pacers, thus India will need their pace attack to play more consistently.

We’ll have to wait and see how the Indian squad does in the Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2023, though. Based on the facts, we forecast that India will make it to the T20 World Cup finals. But don’t be shocked if they fall in the knockout rounds given how difficult the competition is.
