The India Women team failed to maintain its unbeaten run in the Women's World T20 when it mattered the most, crumbling against hosts Australia in the final by a margin of 85 runs. However, they were certainly impressive till that stage, with the performance of the bowling attack the highlight of the tournament. An exciting win against the Aussies in the opening clash of the tournament was followed by an excellent performance by the bowlers against the likes of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand.
The players will certainly have mixed feelings about the campaign having failed to deliver the goods under pressure yet again, following the collapse in the final of the ODI World Cup 2017. The batters need to shoulder the burden at the same level as the bowlers if the team is to taste success in the upcoming 50-over World Cup campaign, where they will be led by Mithali Raj.
Let us take a look at the performances of the players over the course of the campaign, with a rating from scale 1 to 10:
