Australian Bowler Surrenders Before Indian Opening Pair
Megan Schutt, the top pacer of Australia, said she didn’t want to bowl to Shefali Verma and Smriti Mandhana ahead of the final showdown in the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup against India.
Australian bowler quakes before Indian batswomen
Schutt remembers the very first over of the tri-series last month. She was knocked by a boundary on the first ball followed by a sixer by Mandhana. It was the most expensive over as the Indian pair made 16 runs in the opening over of the tournament. And in the words of Schutt, that six was the biggest one on her ball.
T20I career economy of Schutt
The Australian pacer has an impressive economy of 5.98 and the economy increases to 6.93 against India. Her wickets also cost more against India that others. Her career figure of wickets is 15.68 but when it comes to bowl to Women in Blue, this figure goes up to 24.66.
The 27-year-old pacer gave a stunning performance in the rain hit match against South Africa. She dispatched two SA batswomen for 17 runs and helped her team to reach final. But she is in denial mode to bowl to Indian batswomen for fear of giving runs.
Excitement for the MCG showdown
Indian team will play with the present champion Australia on Sunday. While the Australian team is ready to meet their counterparts, the lead bowler of Australia seems hopeless just before the match. She’s afraid in bowling to India’s top-order big guns.
