India’s women’s cricket team is riding high on confidence heading into the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024 in Bangladesh in October. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur believes her side is progressing at the right time and is capable of finishing in the top four teams at the marquee event.

The ninth edition of the T20 World Cup runs from October 03-20, with India drawn in a tough Group A alongside six-time champions Australia, as well as New Zealand, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Despite the challenging group, the Indian skipper is confident about her team’s prospects.

“India, Australia, England and South Africa. Because all these teams have been doing well and hopefully these four can qualify for the semis so we can have very good cricket over there,” Harmanpreet told ICC.

We should do well: Harmanpreet Kaur

India has been building valuable experience playing in Bangladesh over the last year. They recently completed a 5-0 whitewash in a T20I series in Sylhet, allowing them to get accustomed to the conditions they’ll face at the World Cup.

“Yeah, it’s a bit similar to India and hopefully, in these conditions, we should do well,” Harmanpreet added.

The biggest challenge for India could come from defending champions Australia, who have had their number in recent major tournaments like the 2020 T20 World Cup final and 2022 Commonwealth Games final. However, Harmanpreet relishes the opportunity to take on the mighty Aussies.

“I think it will be Australia (who I look forward to facing) because they are very competitive,” Harmanpreet further added.

India kick off their World Cup campaign against New Zealand on October 4th in Sylhet. They’ll also have to contend with the hosts Bangladesh, who will have a huge crowd support behind them.

“Bangladesh will be the home team and they will know the conditions better than us. The crowd will be supporting them. But playing against them is always an exciting event. And hopefully, we will do well against them,” Harmanpreet concluded.
