WWC’17 : A snapshot

Women’s has always been the foundation of anything and for anything to click, women has to serve the foundation well. When you see the Indian Cricketing history, eves has been ignored for the major part. They started playing International cricket along with the male counterpart soon after the inception, but the identity was always questioned. In a male dominating Indian society which has intense love for Cricket, or rather , male international cricket, this win has several meanings.

I know not about the improvement in the state of women’s cricket, but I know something that whatever is the state of affairs, they’ll have a backing of support from the Indian masses. I believe it was the first time that people came to know any other women player apart from Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami. Smiriti Mandhana, Punam Raut, Ekta Bisht, Hampreet Kaur etc. are some players who have won themselves lot of credit. Irrespective of the loss in the finals one has no right to react. If at all one wants to react:

  1. React and commend oneself about the realization of the presence of Women’s cricket. India versus England finals touched 2.2 million online media reach (most viewed Women’s cricket match in the history)
  2. React and commend them for the character exhibited because the coach was changed just few days before the tournament.
  3. React and start following the eve part of the game. It is not only about Men.
  4. React and support every lady around in whatever endeavors.

In 1983, the Kapil Dev team’s win brought change in the way the men cricket was played and followed in the country.  2017′ Women’s World cup will definitely change the Women’s Cricketing scenario in the nation and will inspire many, in whatever field.
