Richa Ghosh will view on Women’s World Cup tournament

Indian Women’s Cricket is ready for the ODI World Cup which begins from 3rd March in New Zealand. They recently announced their squad which will travel to compete in this tournament.

The squad is Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, Yastika Bhatia, Deepti Sharma, Shefali Verma, Sneha Rana, Pooja Vastrakar, Meghna Singh, Jhulan Goswami, Renuka Singh Thakur, Richa Ghosh (wk), Taniya Bhatia (wk), Rajeshwari Gaikwad, Poonam Yadav.

The team is full of excellent performers and one such is 18-year-old Richa Ghosh. Can you believe it? This girl is a powerful right-hand batter and wicketkeeper. At a singularly young age of 16 years, she was named in the Indian squad for the 2020 ICC women’s T20 World Cup. With players like Jemimah Rodrigues being prohibited from the team, Richa might be given an opportunity to play the role of the power hitter for the team in the ODI World Cup 2022.

She has also been included in the squad for the upcoming series against the Kiwis. India will be playing in only T20 and five ODI matches with New Zealand. Her donation to the team is not only as a batter but also as a wicket-keeper. Her presentation in the matches played against Australia in September where she scored a 32 not out and her good wicket-keeping has been an element to help her get a position in the squad for the World Cup.

Because of her performance, she also got a chance to play for Hobart Hurricanes in the Women’s Big Bash League which is a T20 league in Australia. But this season she didn’t perform well, as she scored a mere 162 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 95.29. Hence it is required that she must perform well in the upcoming matches against New Zealand as they will play a great role in her selection for the playing eleven for the World Cup.

In the past few years, the Indian Team has been performing brilliantly in the ICC tournaments. Lamentably, they are not able to convert their performance into a tournament win yet.
