West Indies playing WC final is good for women`s cricket
New Delhi: India captain Mithali Raj feels West Indies` entry into the final of the ICC Women`s World Cup is good for the game and its followers who were used to witnessing Australia-England summit clashes in the recent past.
"West Indies reaching the finals is good for our game. People were becoming used to Australia-England finals in the big events. It will be an interesting final," Mithali said.
Mithali said she wasn`t suprised to see West Indies reaching the finals of the quadrennial event.
"They have been consistent in the tournament. They are an improved side and have been good in all disciplines. They richly deserve it," she said about the Carribean eves whom India comprehensively beat by 105 runs in the opening match of the ongoing World Cup.
The West Indies will take on five-time champions Australia in their maiden final tomorrow at the Brabourne Stadium.
Mithali said women`s cricket has become more professional and entertaining and will only grow with time.
"These days there is lot more physical strength involved in our game along with technique. You see lot many teams scoring over 250 runs and the number of sixes hit have also increased. This is good from fans perspective," she added.
