Ahead of a one-off Test vs. Australia in Mumbai Harmanpreet Kaur focused on ‘recovery''

The captain of the Indian women cricket team, Harmanpreet Kaur, is focused on recovery ahead of their one-off Test match against Australia at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on December 21.
Speaking ahead of their match, Harmanpreet said recovery is the most important thing when playing back-to-back Test matches. India recently defeated England by 347 runs in Mumbai in a one-off Test match, the highest-ever victory margin in women’s Test cricket.
Harmanpreet said, “When you are playing back-to-back Test games, the most important thing for you is recovery. If I talk about Deepti Sharma and Pooja Vastrakar, these players did not get any. We tried to take care of their loads and train them as per what was necessary for their game. And for those who did not have a heavy workload, we tried to push them into the nets. To make them feel more confident.”
She further added that “our approach for this game would be the same as our last match: to go for the win. To continue that approach, if you are batting, it does not mean that you are just staying there. At the same time, you have to get those crucial runs for the team as well. Once you start attacking the bowler in a test, and if your defense is solid, you can play a good mind game with them.”
