ICC Women’s WT20: Mithali Raj’s manager lashes out at skipper Harmanpreet Kaur

Heather Knight- Heather Knight was all smiles after England's impressive performance

The controversial omission of Mithali Raj in India's semi-final clash against England in the Women's World T20 has prompted the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) to ask for her fitness logs during the tournament.

Apart from Reddy's non-utilisation, the other major talking point from India's perspective was their decision to leave out Mithali Raj, their most experienced player and the scorer of back-to-back fifties against Ireland and Pakistan.

England captain Heather Knight said that she was anxious during Powerplay overs when Smriti Mandhana had gone on the offensive but lauded her spinner Kirstie Gordon and Sophie Ecclestone for bringing them back in the game. "She's really taken to global cricket very naturally", Amy Jones said of Gordon after the semi-final. "They (captain, coach and selector) discussed the wicket and the coach expressed that the same winning combination against Australia should play", read team manager Trupti Bhattacharya's report.

"I'd like to say that I don't know what is going on on the inside but, now that the matches are being telecast, we can see who is performing and who is not", Annisha told ESPNcricinfo.

"You only get one brain so it's about using the downtime when you get it and making sure you get it back right", Healy said after a collision last week left her in doubt. "It goes beyond giving the youngsters a chance".

Deandra Dottin was castled by an Ellyse Perry peach, and from there, the Aussies took wickets at regular intervals to canter to a big win. According to an ICC press release, the decision has the backing of every nation's men's and women's team captains. Australia first scored 142, which looked an average total, but bowled beautifully to send the Windies packing for just 71 runs.

"We enjoyed the win, I thought we played well", Australian captain Meg Lanning said.

"I'd be lying if I sat here and said we haven't got scars after the last couple of World Cups". The Indian women got off to a good start but being a top-heavy side and thin thereafter saw them crumble from 89/3 to 112/10. It's probably the two best teams in the world historically over the last few years, and we've had some wonderful games of cricket recently.

Mithali did not feature in the Indian playing XI that eventually crashed out of the tournament after an eight-wicket hammering by England.

Having been a regular presence in the Indian women's team across all formats since her debut, it remains to be seen how Mithali reacts in the aftermath of her exclusion from such an important match.
