According to Veda Krishnamurthy, fate suggests India will win the 2020 I20 Women’s T20 World Cup.
The conditions have proven themselves for the Harmanpreet Kaurs team and used the dynamics of a milestone victory on the opening night against Australia to seal a first appearance in the final.
Krishnamurthy knows the feeling of not being part of previous World Cup squads, and after washing out against England, she feels that the stars have aligned themselves this time.
“It’s only about fate, and I firmly believe in fate. I have a feeling that it should be like this, ”said the dough.
“There is a joke that this World Cup is made to help us, from the gates to everything else.
“The finale is just a reward for the way we played in the group stage. It was an advantage to have won all of our games with the weather out of our hands.
“We said the first goal was to reach the final and reach it from there. We have crossed the first stage. We have to make sure that we keep our nerve and do what we have to do on the last day. “
India’s recent rivalry with Australia has taken fascinating twists and turns. Kaur’s outfit pursued 173 in his last tri-series and came home with 17 runs at the start of the tournament.
The event started with concerns about the shape of India’s middle order, with opening player Smriti Mandhana acknowledging that they need protection from top-order stars.
Krishnamurthy has recovered from a series of single-digit results in the Tri series to impress. Kaur described her 20 of 11 balls in a final role in Bangladesh as a “turning point”.
The Karnataka product has the advantage of being supported by the team’s coaches and believes that the clarity of their role reflects a balanced squad.
“As an individual, the role I’ve been given has been very consistent over the past year,” added Krishnamurthy.
“They tried to keep me there last year, and I was supported by everyone, not just one or two. The entire team, with all of their support staff, showed confidence in me.
“I know that I would play a crucial role in the World Cup to finish the innings well, which I could not do at the last World Cup in the West Indies.
“I was very motivated to play my role and I worked on it. Not only me, all 15 players involved know what role they play.
“I am glad that we are all trying hard and doing our part correctly. Even if it is a small contribution to save a few runs, everything went very well. “
