Birmingham: All’s well that ends well. The last moment has not yet come. The goal for now is to pass the previous step. Commonwealth Games (Commonwealth Games 2022) cricket today double semi-final. India is entering the first match. The opponent is England. Their home field. Familiar surroundings, conditions and statistics, all in England’s favour. India did not start well in the tournament. A very close loss against Australia in the first match. It’s all in the past now. India, led by Harmanpreet Kaur, confirmed the semi-finals by winning two matches in a row. Win against Pakistan by 8 wickets. Beat Barbados by 100 runs. How the comeback has been, is clear from here. Although England is ahead in the semi-finals, India is confident (India vs England). Murali Sreeshankar, who won silver in long jump, has made a big contribution in this.
The subject may be a bit imprecise. What is the relationship between long jump and cricket! That is the story told by Indian women’s cricket team coach Ramesh Pawar. Saying, ‘We also know that a win means a medal is guaranteed. England is one of the best team in women’s cricket. tough opponent We are also looking forward to the field. With so much confidence, he added, ‘We were watching the long jump event on TV. Sreesankar won silver. The way he fought in every effort, it gave us motivation.’ Multi event sports. Cricket has been included in the Commonwealth Games for the first time. There is an opportunity to meet and talk with other athletes. The cricketers also went to watch other matches of India. Talked to many athletes at the dinner. Had the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time with the men’s hockey team. Coach Ramesh Pawar said, ‘So far the tour has been enjoyable. I have been following a process for the last one year. The fruit is in front of the eyes. Talked to other athletes too. Great experience. I thought it would be better to stay in the games village. Manpreet, the captain of the men’s hockey team, was spoken to. How to handle the pressure of big matches, what is in their thoughts, all that has been talked about. Manpreet was very busy. He also gave time to our girls. The dinner party also danced with them. All in all a great time.’ While all other athletes are in the Games Village, separate arrangements are in place for the cricket team.
India played well in all three matches of the group stage. Pacer Renuka Singh Thakur’s spell against Australia and Barbados will never be forgotten. Four consecutive overs in the first spell. Four wickets each. The spinners are performing flawlessly. Smriti Mandhana, Shefali Verma, Jemima Rodriguez are in good form in batting. Deepti Sharma’s innings against Barbados is also commendable. On the other hand, England won all three of their matches in the group stage. The fight will not be easy. The match against England in the multinational competition was reminiscent of the 2017 World Cup final. India was on the verge of victory against England in the ODI World Cup final. From there they have to return as runners. That regret will go away. So the semi-final will change the match? Coach Ramesh Pawar, however, does not believe in this theory. Saaf said, ‘Cricket is a game. It is not life or death. No one cares about change. I want to put a smile on the face of the people of the country by playing well.’
