Where to now for India. Some players staying around for the WBBL, sure (don't be surprised if they leave early for some bogus national camp), but nothing on the BCCI's schedule for the rest of them until the World Cup.

They have brought in lots of players from the wilderness in the last 6-12 months who have performed very well, there are no depth issues. Most highlights packages from the series have been getting 1, or 3, million views easily on Youtube, there are no issues with interest from the Indian public. The only issue is they can bat and bowl just as well, or better, than other teams but still fail to put the opposition away because of poor fielding, fitness, pressure handling... How long can the solution be ignored while it only becomes more and more glaring, that is the question.

For Australia, with a bit of luck it'll be South Africa touring this time next year, bringing the format to a fourth team. True it's us who owe them the visit, not the other way around, though I expect that's going to happen anyway in early 2023 either side of the T20 World Cup. If not them, it'll be something low key against the West Indies or Pakistan, against whom I can't see a Test getting organised.

Hopefully Harmanpreet Kaur is saving her best for her time with the Brisbane Heat.
HarmanHeat Kaur? Not to be, she's playing for the Renegades.

I got Harmanpreet Kaur mixed up with Poonam Yadav. Yikes.

India are probably still 2-3 good years away. They have only really started pumping money into women’s cricket in the last 4 years or so.

They need to find some middle order bats and a genuine batting all rounder, batting still seems very skinny after the top 4.

Then there’s the huge issue of playing 3 keepers which in turn hurts balance and what not. Make a call on the keeper, really if Verma can keep in ODI/T20 it should be her.

Need to work on their delivering while we were saving 10-15 runs an innings, India were giving that up. That will come but it still takes a while. Getting more in the WBBL will only get this better quicker.

2-3 years away from what, falling behind completely? They beat us in a T20 series here in 2016. They were in the box seat of the 2017 WC final until a late implosion. They're 5-14 in white ball cricket this year.

The BCCI haven't been investing anywhere near enough in women's cricket. Saying "give it time" is fine if the right structures are already being put in place, but they're not. Of course they need to work on their fielding, the point is it's never going to improve with the way things are now.

Australia could have played 3 keepers (actual quality keepers, not faux ones like Verma) this series and you wouldn't be able to tell. If you get handed a spot in the national team for being good in just one of three key areas, what motivation is there to improve in a second and/or third.

India have Rodrigues (21), Ghosh (18) and Yastika Bhatia (21) in the middle order plus Vastrakar (22) and Deepti Sharma (24) lower down. At the very least. Talent is not the issue.
