India’s spot within the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 semi-finals is already safe, but captain Harmanpreet Kaur has insisted that they gained take Sri Lanka lightly in their very last group game to be played on Saturday.
India had been the first to sail through to the knockout degree after securing wins against hosts and defending champions Australia, as well as Bangladesh and New Zealand, in the first week of the tournament.
On the alternative hand, Sri Lanka has lost both the fits they have got played up to now towards Australia and New Zealand and are almost out of the competition of creating to the final four-level.
Victory over Sri Lanka might see India top Group A and head into the semi-finals full of confidence, and Kaur doesn’t want to settle for whatever less.
“I recognize we’ve got qualified; however, the next game is still critical for us,” said Kaur. “We will be taking Sri Lanka very seriously.
“They’ve been doing well. I realize they haven’t gained a recreation, but they were nearly there on both occasions.
“We can be taking it very seriously earlier than we start thinking about the semi-finals,” she added.
The Indian skipper further said the wicket of Chamari Athapaththu might be critical and that”s why they might try to take the wicket of the Sri Lankan batter as early as possible.
“We try to take each wicket in all of our games. Every wicket is an essential one at this level,” stated Kaur.
“We just need to try to persist with our plan, mainly to get out the likes of Chamari Athapaththu early. That might be vital,” she added.
