Former Australian left-arm chinaman Brad Hogg was very much impressed with the way the Indian women’s cricket team played against the England women in the One-off Test. India started the final day with the early loss of Shafali Verma and the other batsman had to show some grit to keep India from the verge of defeat.

At one stage, the wickets kept falling around and India was reeling at 240 for the loss of eight wickets in their second innings and it needed some resistance from the lower order. They got the much-needed innings from the off-spinner Sneh Rana and Taniya Bhatia who put up a 104 run partnership for the ninth wicket and took India through the last day.

Brad Hogg Impressed By Indian Women’s Fight Till The End

Brad Hogg was mightily impressed with the Indian women’s fighting efforts to save the test from the verge of being defeated by the England women. He notified that the Indian women lacked experience but managed to keep their heads up and he added that he was eager to see them play against the likes of Australian women soon.

“I think Indian Women were fantastic. The way that they saved the Test match, they had the fight right till the end. They don’t have much experience in that regard as what England do. They are not too off the mark. I am really looking forward to them playing against Australia,” Brad Hogg said on his YouTube channel.

Brad Hogg Claims India Women To Be The Team To Beat In Four Years Time

Brad Hogg hailed the young Indian women to come good in four years’ time from now and that has been the confidence given by the performance of this young Indian team. Players like Shafali Verma who was the player of the match on her debut will certainly be a huge prospect for the future.

“With the youth that is coming through right now, I would probably give them four years before they start to get dominant like the men’s team. They might be the team to beat in four years’ time and might knock Australia off the mantle in that regard,” Brad Hogg added.

In the process of fighting back, Sneh Rana became the first Indian woman to pick up a four-wicket haul as well as score a half-century on her test debut.
