Mandhana emphasized on the consistency
The opener, Smriti Mandhana emphasized on the consistency, “The change was mental, rather than technical. At a certain point in your career, you need to look at yourself and see where you are. I did that, maybe a year-and-a-half or two back, and realized that you can’t be just a performer, you need to be a match-winner for India.”
Smriti Mandhana asserted the feelings on Australia series, “The focus has been to not be just a batter, [but to ensure] that you don’t throw away your wicket. And also to get the team through. That’s the kind of responsibility you have in your head and you select your shots accordingly. Earlier, I was not that great with shot selection. That had to be changed, and that’s one thing I am still working on”
