The Indian girls will start their ICC Women’s World Cup campaign with a match against New Zealand later tonight.
Star Sports, ICC’s live and exclusive broadcaster for the Indian sub-continued will also broadcast the all the ICC Women’s World T20 action in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Bhutan and Bangladesh live and exclusive with live streaming on HotStar.
The young Indian squad will aim to emerge from the shadows of a winless past when it launches its bid for a maiden title with a tough opener against New Zealand in the first stand alone Women’s World T20 at Guyana today.
India have not been very competitive in the shortest format compared to the 50-over game, in which they scripted a path-breaking moment last year when they reached the World Cup final.
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and recently-appointed coach Ramesh Powar insist that the team has learnt from that final loss and the presence of youngsters, including six World Cup debutants, makes the squad “fearless”. India have never won the World T20 in their previous five attempts with their best result, two semi-final appearances, coming in 2009 and 2010
