Mandhana’s in Red Bull’s Decoding Athletes series Podcast
Yeah, I think the kind of performances we’ve had in the last three-four years is great.
The average age of the Indian women’s team is 23-24, which means that there are a lot of young players,” said Mandhana in a podcast on Red Bull’s Decoding Athletes series.
“The league definitely gives a boost to women’s cricket and gives confidence to youngsters. We’ve seen in men’s cricket;
debutants are facing 145-150 speed deliveries quite comfortably. You can’t see that they’re nervous on their debut,” she further said.
“The league has played a big role in that, and it’s going to help women’s cricket as well.
If you really want to get a strong women’s team in India, it’s the right time to get a women’s league,” she added.
Mandhana, if you got given a chance and choice, what team would you like to play ?
“I think at the moment I’m happy to lead Trailblazers. But if given a choice, and because I’m from Maharashtra, so Mumbai probably. But I think all the teams are so good and they look after the players so well. Any team would be amazing for development as a player,” Smriti Mandhana answered.
I think it’s a very good contest every time we play England. I think whenever you’re playing England or Australia you have to be at your best. You have to step up a bit on your mental side more than your skills,” said Shriti Mandhana.
