England captain Heather Knight said - Indian women's team is very strong

LONDON: England women's cricket team captain Heather Knight said the Indian team is very strong and it will not be easy to beat them in the upcoming series. Knight also supported the multi-format points system under which the Indian team will play three ODIs, three T20 Internationals and one Test match. Teams will be awarded four points for a win in a Test, two points for a draw and one point for a match that does not result in a match. Two points will be awarded for winning in limited overs matches.

Knight said that we wanted to play such a series because our fans have not seen the matches for a long time. India is a very strong team and it is natural that it will be a tough competition. They are not easy to beat and hence it is expected that these matches will be exciting to watch. The only Test match between India and England will be played from June 16 to 19. With this, Knight's side will start a crucial season in which they will go to defend their title in the Ashes series as well as the World Cup in New Zealand.

Knight said that starting against a strong team like India, a team that has been very successful over the years and facing them will be a really big test for us. Women hardly play Test cricket and it is a fairly new format for both the teams, especially for India which played its last Test match in 2014. Knight said it would be the first match in the multi-format points system. We will do everything possible to win it. When you play very little test cricket, sometimes it becomes difficult because you don't know what to do in these situations. 


This England fast bowler said - remove the ICC 'soft signal' rule

This England fast bowler said - remove the ICC 'soft signal' rule

Birmingham: Veteran England pacer Stuart Broad wants the ICC to do away with the 'soft signal' rule as it does not live up to expectations and leaves match officials in a dire situation. Broad said this after the controversial decision involving New Zealand batsman Devon Conway in the second Test. Broad believed Conway was caught by Jacques Crowley at slip for 22. The on-field umpire left the decision to TV umpire Michael Gough who softly signaled not out.

Conway took full advantage of the opportunity and scored 80 runs to put New Zealand in a strong position. Broad said before the third day's play that you can understand from our reaction on the field that we thought he was out. Jacques felt the ball had landed in his hand and saw Joe Root at first slip and James Brassie behind the wicket who were a yard away from it. He knew that the ball was in his hand.

But it is not the fault of the umpires who are 40 yards away, he said. This rule has made their position difficult. Broad appealed to the ICC to look into this and take necessary measures. If you look at the positive and negative aspects of this rule, the negative is more. I think this is a bad rule and ICC should remove it without waiting for the next meeting.
