NAVI MUMBAI: Soon after leading India to a record 347-run win over England in the one-off Women’s Test at the DY Patil Stadium on Saturday, India women’s team skipper Harmanpreet Kaur hoped for more Tests, particularly in the light of a mighty impressive Test debut by all the three young guns.

“We didn’t get that many opportunities in the Test format when we were playing cricket, but hopefully the new generation will get many more games, especially if you talk about Tests, because we have quite a busy schedule in T20Is and ODIs, but Test cricketis actually something that gives you a lot of patience and you can improve your skills.

If we get more Tests, that will definitely help us as players,” Harmanpreet, who herself was making her Test captaincy debut after playing over 100 white-ball games for India, told reporters.
India would be pretty pleased with the performance of all the three Test debutant — batters Shubha Satheesh and Jemimah Rodrigues, who stroked fifties, and pacer Renuka Singh Thakur, who provided the opening blows.

Talking about them, India’s new head coach Amol Muzumdar said, “Good signs for Indian cricket. All of them who made their debut (Jemimah Rodrigues, Shubha Satheesh and Renuka Thakur) batted and bowled well. England is a top side and these youngsters got a taste of what Test cricket is about.”
