1. How did it feel when the entire country turned its head towards you while playing the finals? A lot of pressure?
Of course, I was under pressure as we lost a couple of great batswomen and hence, the upcoming ones in the line had a lot of pressure and the pressure of the World Cup as a whole. However, I was confident when I batted because I was handling the ball well, so, I was just batting to get those runs.
2. Your team has finally made the citizens realize what women could do. That’s a great achievement. How does it feel to be a part of a huge history you created as a team?
When we stepped into the World Cup, we had no expectations out of the game, in fact, we had no expectations to even reach the finals. Our initial aim was to get to the semi finals. However, playing finals on such a big occasion we were definitely upset for not winning it. When we returned to India we were treated like we have achieved something new and opened up a new door for a new cause. This new revolution is important, it is a rebirth for women’s cricket in India, we have garnered a lot of attention through this and I am definitely expecting a lot of changes in the near future.
3. What is your style of batting and how different is it from the others?
My style of batting is aggressive. I do not take the time to settle down and bat, unlike my fellow batswomen. I feel that from the very first ball I must hit it to my fullest.
