On This Women's Day, Let's Cheer For The Women In Blue As They Aim For A Maiden T20 World Cup Title
March 8 is International Women's Day. The day we universally glorify the gender which has battled persecution, judgement, patriarchy and chauvinism and is still fighting these battles everyday. Well, on this particular Women's Day, the whole of India shall be looking towards Melbourne. That's right. It is the final of the Women's World T20 and India are in their maiden final. They take on defending champions and hosts Australia for a chance to be crowned winners.
The Women in Blue led by birthday girl Harmanpreet Kaur shall be battling for supremacy when they take on possibly the strongest team in the format. Having said that, we did beat Australia in our opening game. We are yet to lose a game with 4 wins in the league stage and a semifinal washout. Yes while our entry into the final was through the back door, we earned it courtesy of our good show in the league.?
Our girls are itching to get onto the field. But the request that should be made at this time is to the fans. Cheer for our girls! While the men's team was faltering just a few miles away in New Zealand, the women's team was keeping the flag flying high. The Indian women's team was winning everything and now are just one game away from creating history. What a moment it will be if we can win the title on Women's Day!?
The likes of Harmanpreet, Shafali Verma, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia and others will be representing the hopes of a nation when they are our their in the middle. They need our support. The fact that it is on Women's Day is all the more reason to stand behind them. They are looking to do our country proud. So let's stand by their side like we would when it's a men's final or a normal India match.?
No, this is not just another game. This is the perfect ending to the script of the Indian women's cricket team coming of age. A mixture of youth and experience, this side has what it takes to be champs.?
All the best Team India! Today is your day, now is your time and we are with you all the way! Bleed blue everybody, cheer for the girls. They are out there looking for glory for us, the people of India. So let's see them through. You are already champions for us! Now bring home the Cup!?
