India captain Mithali Raj confirmed on Saturday that Harmanpreet Kaur will be her deputy in the upcoming Women’s 50-over World Cup. Deepti Sharma wore the vice-captaincy hat in the last two ODIs against New Zealand. Harmanpreet did not play in the fourth ODI, but she did make a comeback in the final ODI, and Deepti retained her position as vice-captain.
Harmanpreet Kaur named as India’s vice captain for the World Cup.
“Deepti was chosen as the vice-captain for the last two ODIs by the selectors and the BCCI. Harmanpreet Singh is the World Cup’s vice-captain “Mithali stated during a virtual press conference.
From March 4 to April 3, New Zealand will host the Women’s World Cup. On March 6, India will face Pakistan in their first match of the tournament.
With her extensive World Cup experience, India’s captain has been passing on her knowledge to those about to make their debut.
“The only piece of advice I would give to young players is to enjoy the big stage because if you pile on the pressure, you may not be playing as well as the team and you would like to in the World Cup,” she added.
“The batting department has come together, the bowling unit has taken a little time, we didn’t have a camp in India because of the rising COVID-19 cases, so this series against New Zealand was important in terms of World Cup preparation,” she added.
In the previous five-match ODI series, India was defeated 1-4 by New Zealand.
