Would like to bowl first after winning the toss
Richa Ghosh in her statement also revealed that if India wins the toss in the semi-final against Australia, they would prefer to chase the target. Ghosh, who has been India’s best performer so far in the World Cup, said, “Australia feel comfortable chasing because they have depth in their batting. We would love to do that too but nobody has control over the toss. So whatever the situation may be, we have to go through it. We have prepared our strategy for this match. “We don’t know how the pitch will behave tomorrow but it is looking good now,” he said. If all our batsmen walk, then we can set a target of around 180 in front of them. If we bowl first, we will try to restrict them to 140 to 150 because they have got good batsmen.
Lessons learned from the ups and downs in the game
The 19-year-old Richa Ghosh also mentioned that there are ups and downs in the game. She herself has gone through this phase. But this has also taught him how to get out of any situation. Talking about her game, Ghosh, who played the role of a finisher, said, “Ups and downs come and even I have gone through them but I took a lesson from him that how you deal with the situation.” When I go out to bat, I deal with pressure better now than before.
Australia can be defeated – Richa Ghosh
India haven’t had a good record against Australia in the recent past but Ghosh believes the Meg Lanning-led side is beatable. Australia have lost only one T20 International match in the last 22 months. Which he was defeated by India in the super over. Five-time champions Australia are currently unbeaten in the tournament. Ghosh said, ‘Australia can be defeated. We beat them in our last series and we have beaten them before. They have a strong team but we can beat them. We are trying to strengthen our mindset. Everyone has their own different game but the team which is mentally strong will win. We are working on it.’
