“If the opening is going well then there will be no pressure on the rest of the players. Shafali was also very confident and I hope she will start like Virender Sehwag in the semi-final match. In matches like this when the opening pair does better, then they can easily control the match. Not only me, but the whole country will pray for the Indian team to win in the World Cup,” he maintained.

India’s team for the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia is expected to feature several experienced players. The only major selection dilemma may be choosing between Devika Vaidya and Radha Yadav for the additional all-rounder spot.
