Harmanpreet Kaur opened their equation with head coach Ramesh Powar. The test surrogate and T20I skipper claimed her relationship with Powar was similar to last time, claiming she always takes something back when the duo talks about the game.
Ramesh Powar returned as head coach of Team India in May this year, replacing WV Raman. The former Indian weirdo is returning to the role he last held in 2018 when India reached the T20 World Cup semi-finals under his leadership.
Harmanpreet Kaur spoke to the media from England and discussed whether her relationship with Ramesh Powar had changed in recent years.
“It’s similar to the last time he was with us. He’s someone who is always involved in the game and wants other players to do the same. He always creates a scenario when you talk to him, you feel like you are in a match. He asks you to put yourself in a scenario and then discusses how you should react. I always get a lot of information when I talk to him. He has played a lot of cricket, including T20 cricket. We’re repeating what we did in 2018. “
Harmanpreet Kaur is currently training with the rest of the squad in England as the Indian women prepare for their first test in seven years.
India Women and England Women will take part in the historic one-time test in Bristol, with the highly anticipated game starting on June 16.
The series is part of a long tour of England for India Women. After the one-time test, India Women will compete against England Women in three ODIs and three T20Is until mid-July.
Harmanpreet Kaur doesn’t think about The Hundred
While India Women will play their final international match in England on July 14th, five of the team will remain to appear in the inaugural edition of The Hundred.
Harmanpreet Kaur will appear in The Hundred for Manchester Originals, with the team playing their first game against Oval Invincibles on July 21 at the Kia Oval.
Answer a Question from Sportskeeda, she claimed the three month tour means that she hasn’t thought much about The Hundred, but has chosen to take it day in and day out.
“Right now we just take it day after day. Because it’s a long tour, and if you keep thinking about how to stay here for three months, it can really drain you. We just do it day after day, and first we have a test so we just think about it. As soon as we switch to ODIs, we will think about it and later about other games. “
Together with Harmanpreet Kaur, four other Indian cricketers, Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues and Deepti Sharma, will be on duty in The Hundred.
