INDW vs. AUSW | Playing Australia is like competing against men, Shafali Verma notes

Young Indian women’s batsman Shafali Varma has praised the Australian women’s team saying they are a strong team and keen to compete against men. Verma further added that India should be on top of their game in the fourth T20I as they take advantage of the opponent’s mistakes.

The Indian women face Australia in a five-game T20I series match and trail the series by 2-1. The two teams will meet in the fourth T20I on Saturday and it will be a must match for the hosts. Shafali Varma has been a major contributor with the bat throughout the series, scoring 107 runs in three games while averaging 35.67. Additionally, the fourth T20I will be Shafali’s 50th game in the shortest format.

Ahead of Game 4, Shafali praised the opposition saying they capitalize on every mistake the opposition make and feel like they are competing against men.

“When I play against Australia I feel like I’m playing against men because their game is like that. If they see a little mistake you make they will take advantage of it. So we have to be on top of our game against them,” Shafali said as quoted by SportStar.

“You can’t make a mistake against them. You have to play your best shots, which you are confident of. I learned a lot playing against Australia. I love playing against them.

India had managed to win a thrilling super in the second T20I at DY Patil Stadium, but the batter insists Brabourne Stadium is a different surface. She explained that they were working on singles under batting coach Hrishikesh Kanitkar.

“This wicket is not similar to DY Patil Stadium. The bowlers are generating a good swing on this wicket but we really can’t make excuses. We are working on the singles under the guidance of the batting coach Day by day we are improving,” she explained.
