Jhulan Goswami: NZ series before WC will help us adjust to windy conditions
Veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami reckons that the ODI series in New Zealand will help the team plug the gaps and get used to the windy conditions before the Women’s World Cup starts in that country from March 4.
Goswami, 39, who is the leading wicket-taker in ODIs, will be featuring in her last ICC mega event. The ODI series against New Zealand will begin from February 11.
The 18-member India squad, including three reserve players, is expected to leave for New Zealand on January 24. “We are getting to play New Zealand before the World Cup which is great preparation. It will help us get used to the conditions and weather,” Jhulan said.
“It is very windy there and we as cricketers need some time to adjust to the conditions. We as bowlers find it tough to bowl against the wind initially.”
“Those five games will allow us to get familiar with the pitches and the weather. All matches are going to be important. We have a squad of 18, if we want to rotate our players before the World Cup [that can be done in the ODI series].
