Australia women’s team coach Matthew Mott is of the opinion that the Indian Women’s team are the “sleeping giants” of women’s cricket and might well be a superpower in the future years especially due to the resources they have at their disposal. The current Indian Women’s team is loaded with some exceptional players who have the ability to turn the game on its head pretty quickly.

Ever since the Indian colts finished as the runners-up of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, the craze of women’s cricket in India has seen a steady rise. They were pretty impressive all through the tournament but faltered in the final hurdle losing against hosts England by just 9 runs. The defeat was definitely a huge heartbreak for the Indian girls especially due to the fact that they were within touching distance of the target.

Meanwhile, the Indian colts were impressive in the T20 World Cup as well last November. They qualified for the semi-final after some impressive show in the group stage. The omission of Mithali Raj from the semi-final was the start of a new chapter in controversy. Meanwhile, Matthew Mott feels that the Indian women’s team have at least 3-4 top class players.

“They’re (India) the sleeping giant in women’s cricket. They’ve got a country that’s mad on the game, and in their batting, they’ve already got three or four world-class players,” said Matthew Mott.

“The depth in their batting is outstanding, their bowling’s got potential as well and their fielding has improved out of sight,” Mott was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

The Indian colts have never won a World Cup. However, they qualified for the final on a couple of occasions. It was back in 2005 when India qualified to the final but lost on the big day. Matthew Mott feels India will be a force in world cricket.

“They’re going to be a force in world cricket. Having made that World Cup final (in 2017), and they’ve got a country of a billion people behind them as well, they’re going to be a huge force,” said the 45-year-old former Queensland allrounder.
