In the world cup‚ India's top order hasn't fired. Mithali Raj and Jhulan went on to explain why India have been unable to achieve their target. They also blamed the lack of wicket-taking ability of the middle-order‚ saying that the top-order hasn't been firing as they would have hoped. But Goswami's comments were equally revealing. Both Goswami and Raj have been silent during this period‚ but their efforts have paid off. Both players have picked up their 250th ODI wicket. And Raj has taken his first fifty in the Test series. The collapses‚ however‚ have left the middle-order open to criticism. But Goswami‚ who has a record of picking up ODI wickets‚ insists that there's no quick fix for this problem. India's batters were below par against England‚ who bowled them out for 134.
And their top-order collapsed under pressure to 134 all out in 36.2 overs. While England were struggling for a score of 132‚ India managed to reduce their opponents to four for two. The team's net run rate did a lot less damage by taking their chase to the 32nd over. The 134-run total was their lowest in four games in the ICC Women's World Cup since 2010.
