The Indian women’s cricket team is all set for the upcoming ICC Women’s World Cup, which kicks off in New Zealand on March 4. Ahead of the team’s tournament opener against arch-rival Pakistan on Sunday, the players gathered for the official pre-tournament photo shoot. The ICC uploaded some candid moments from the event and the Indian team looked cheerful and there was much laughter and chatter among the players.
The highlight of the video was a traditional “bhangra” dance step by Harmanpreet Kaur, the team’s vice captain. The video starts with Harmanpreet holding her hands high and doing the traditional Punjabi folk dance step. She says “I only know this, wherever I go, I do this” as she takes the step.
The ICC captioned the entire video as “A dose of laughter with some groovy dancing. The ???????? camp is filled with joy for #CWC22”
The Indian team wants to go one step further than the previous tournament and win the World Cup for the first time ever.
India lost by 9 runs to England in the last World Cup in 2017. They had also lost in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup to Australia.
At the end of their respective record-breaking careers, Captain Mithali Raj and veteran pacemaker Jhulan Goswami hope to finally get the big trophy.
