Women's camp gets underway

“The camp will feature the Indian team and the probables, basically young players who have emerged from the zonal academies,” said skipper Jhulan Goswami, under whom the team finished third in a quadrangular series in England last month. “This camp is an annual event where we all work together."

"In England, the results were patchy,” Jhulan admitted, referring to the fact that India lost all their thre league matches before defeating New Zealand in the third-place play-off. “We were not consistent. The English conditions, with the ball doing a lot in the air and off the pitch, were difficult but that is not an excuse. We had some individual brilliance but as a team we did not perform well."

"A few youngsters like Veda Krishnamurthy and Ekta Bisht did well. The team was a blend of seniors and juniors and the plan is to have the right bunch of girls for the World Cup in India in 2013. We only have three international series every year and youngsters have to make the most of these opportunities."
