We need someone to bat through 20 overs, says Smriti Mandhana

New Delhi: Reflecting on defeat against New Zealand in the three-match T20 series, India opener Smriti Mandhana said her team needs to address its batting woes, especially after losing all the games from winning positions.

According to PTI report, Mandhana said, “Well I think the girls fought really well. If you look back at the series and see, 70 or 80 per cent of the times we were in winning positions. That’s a good take away but there are a lot of things which we can improve.”

“We need to address those (batting) issues as soon as possible. We need someone who can bat through 20 overs and someone who can go in at the middle overs and get runs later on,” she said.

Mandhana returned as the highest run-getter in the T20 series, amassing 180 runs from three games at an average of 60, including two half-centuries.

“I really wanted to finish the game for India. I have never been that animated ever. I badly wanted to do it today and help the team get over the line but unfortunately, I couldn’t,” the southpaw said.
