Gold Coast: Mithali Raj, the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, praised batsman Smriti Mandhana and senior fast bowler Jhulan Goswami, who scored her maiden Test century.
Smriti showed talent
Mithali Raj said, Smriti Mandhana has been very talented. I was also impressed by Yastika Bhatia and Richa Ghosh in ODIs. I am sure that Harmanpreet Kaur will enter the field in the T20 series.

‘Jhulan Goswami is the best’
Mithali Raj further said that 38-year-old Jhulan Goswami also showed why she has been the best from her country for so long. Jhulan has always been our best bowler over the years and we got to see why she was the best. He shared his experience and young fast bowlers Pooja Vastrakar and Meghna Singh were given a chance with Jhulan so that they could learn a lot.

Test ended in a draw
Mithali Raj also said that if Australia had got 4 more wickets in the second innings, then the visiting team would have tried to bowl a few more overs. This Day-Night Test against Kangaroos ended in a draw.
