Sachin Tendulkar asked the India Women team to go into the final simply focusing on their game. He told them to forget about the outside world. India Women qualified for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup final after their semi-final against England Women was washed out. Hosts Australia Women defeated South Africa Women in the second semi-final.
Tendulkar said that there’s no point in talking about the pressure of a World Cup final clash. He advised the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side to not feel the pressure. The cricketing legend has asked the team to stay together and advised the India Women’s team to keep talking about positive things.
