The improvement in women’s cricket is obvious from the enormous increase in team totals. While the rapid improvement is visible in Australia’s dominance, the increase in scoring rates – improved by nearly 2 runs over 3 decades – has been apparent throughout the women’s game.
The other area where rapid development has been made is fielding. Not only is the groundwork much improved but the standard of catching and throwing has risen quickly. The BCCI is now recognizing the value of developing the women’s game and intends to hold an expanded IPL competition soon.
Along with these rapid improvements has come increased prize money and greater attendance, as indicated by the near-capacity crowd at the MCG for the 2020 women’s standalone T20 final.
Other teams now need to raise their standard to meet the demanding challenge set by the Australian women’s cricket team. This will be a tough assignment, especially while the strong-minded Lanning is in charge.
