India women’s new leg-spinning sensation, Poonam Yadav has opened up on the recently concluded ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Although India women’s could not win the tournament, however, the World Cup has certainly given India a couple of match-winners including Poonam Yadav and Shafali Verma.

Poonam Yadav Opens Up On India’s Shortcomings In The Final

“I wouldn’t say, we fell short. We played good cricket throughout the tournament. We didn’t play well in just one match. The team that played better that day won. In T20, one over or one batter can change a game,” Poonam said.

Poonam Believes Indian Cricketers Are Mentally Strong

When asked about losing two World Cup(2017 & 2020) finals in recent time, Poonam said, “Indian players are strong mentally. Unlike them, we handle and survive difficult situations in our everyday lives. That day all of us should have taken the responsibility (of winning the game) but we couldn’t.”
