Ramesh Powar: Players like Sneh Rana are ‘what we need right now’


“Our batting has to be up if we’re aiming for the World Cup,” says the India Women head coach

Ramesh Powar, the India Women head coach, has echoed team captain Mithali Raj‘s thoughts, calling Sneh Rana the “find of the England series”. Rana, in as an injury replacement for Rajeshwari Gaekwad, has sparkled with bat and ball so far, and has “played her role to the core”, Powar said.

“Sneh Rana is the find of this series,” Powar told the BCCI website. “The way she was bowling in the practice sessions in Southampton [India’s base prior to the start of the tour], we thought we should give her a chance. It was a difficult decision to play two offspinners [Deepti Sharma is the other], but she has played her role to the core.
