The Indian cricketers have been warned with these wise words by the batter Veda Krishnamurthy on Sunday (February 23).

“We can’t be complacent with the victory. We have to let go of those emotions now and focus on repeating all the good things we did,” said Krishnamurthy, who remained not out on 9 in the Australia game.

Harmanpreet Kaur’s side beat the host nation by 17 runs despite struggling to assert themselves with the bat.

Batting first, India were restricted to a mere total of 132 for four in their 20 overs. In reply, Australia were folded for 115, as leg-spinner Poonam Yadav tore through the middle order of Meg Lanning’s side.

Krishnamurthy added that no matter what the result came out in the opening match, they must put on more runs on the board to give their bowlers some comfort in defense.

“We want to make sure we have enough of a score for our bowlers to defend. At the same time, we can’t be too ambitious with our strokes or risk being run short, but we need to make sure we get enough runs on board.

“As you all saw, our bowling attack is doing really well. It’s all about giving them that extra cushioning. If we had finished 15 runs shorter on Friday, it would have been a lot more difficult for us,” she added.

India will face Bangladesh on Monday in their second Group A game. The match will be played at WACA Ground in Perth from 5pm Bangladesh Standard Time.
