AFTER a deserving break post their ICC World Cup exploits, where they narrowly finished second best, the Indian women’s team is back to grabbing headlines. Despite their loss in the third Twenty20 International against South Africa, the Indian women’s team is all set to bag their maiden series with two more matches to go. This will be another milestone for the Indian women who have already clinched their maiden One-Day series victory against the same team.

The World Cup sojourn has acted as a perfect launchpad for women’s cricket to take its deserving place in the collective conscience of the fans. Mithali Raj’s band of bravehearts won hearts in the World Cup and were showered with love, rewards and encomiums that women’s cricket longed for. The adulation has certainly acted as a big fillip for the team full of talented players. The team, too, has responded brilliantly with a stellar performance against the Protean women in their own backyard. With just nine months for the T20 World Cup the Indian women are on course for bigger glory. Power to the women.
