CWG 2022: Virat Kohli Wishes Indian Women’s Cricket Team
In Twitter, Kohli wrote: “My best wishes to the Indian women’s cricket team and all our athletes participating in the Commonwealth Games.”
Rishabh Pant, the Indian cricket team’s wicketkeeper-batter, also wished the team luck in the Commonwealth Games.
“Wishing @BCCIWomen and all our athletes the best for the CWG, rooting for each and every one of you. Jai Hind,” tweeted Pant.
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur held a virtual press conference on the eve of the event.
She discussed the team’s preparation.
“I think we have always done better whenever we have gotten a chance to play against them (Australia), this time things are looking really positive, we will try to do our best,” Harmanpreet said during a virtual press conference on Thursday in response to an NDTV question about playing against Australia.
Harmanpreet went on to say about facing Australia: “See, all of the teams are important to us. When competing in a tournament like this, it is critical to win all of your games. The first game is always crucial because it sets the tone for the team. We have plans for all teams; it is a matter of taking each game one at a time.”
When asked about staying in the Games Village, the Indian captain stated: “Staying in the village differs from the other tournaments we participate in. We’re having a good time; wherever you go, you must carry your card; otherwise, no one will recognize you without it. Yeah, we’re getting used to these conditions. As for the opening ceremony, we’re still thinking about it because we have an early game the next day, so we’re working on that. If everything goes as planned, we’ll definitely go for it.”
