The Indian Women’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur told Mumbai Mirror that India’s domestic cricket structure for women’s cricket is five to six years behind Australia and England.

Although, the captain believes that skill wise the Indian team is at par with any nation around the world.

Kaur said that now the players are more aware about what is expected of them. In matters of physical fitness and daily routine, the players are no more clueless when they make their transition from the domestic level to the international level.

Kaur understands that the Indian domestic cricket is improving but points out that the things we are doing now have been a part of Australia and England’s domestic circuit for two to three years now.

The 31-year old explosive batter believes that the captaincy has made her a better person because it makes her think about others too. It keeps her alert and make her feel more involved in the game.
