Former Australian women’s cricket team captain Lisa Sthalkar has targeted the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for not paying attention to women’s cricket in India. He said, ‘Indian women’s cricket players do not even know when they will play the next match. I think India is the largest untapped talent market in the world. If BCCI uses this talent, then they can also dominate in women’s cricket.
BCCI is very slow to take initiative for women
In a program by the Australian Broadcast Corporation, Liza said that the BCCI is going in the right direction, but quite slow. He said, ‘BCCI has delayed the Women’s IPL plan a lot. Women’s cricket is coming up in Australia because we have invested in it. Australia formed a league like Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL), which is in its 6th season. ‘
Women players did not train for Women’s T20 Challenge
Lisa also targeted the Women’s T20 Challenge in Dubai, ie Women’s IPL. He said, ‘We can see big scores on paces and bounced pitches. But in the Women’s T20 Challenge, the wickets were flat and low scoring. Women players also did not train properly. This was not the right time for BCCI to advertise their game.
Invested on women’s cricket in Australia
Lisa said, ‘I still remember the time when there were only 6 teams in the WBBL. We changed it and now there are 8 teams in the league. I hear the argument in India that women’s cricket does not have depth, but we also did not have depth. When WBBL started, teams were weak at the time. Gradually the number of players increased and now the league has the best teams. You have to gamble to make anything big. ‘
Lisa was born in India
Please tell that Lisa was born on August 13, 1979 in Pune, Maharashtra. However, he was adopted by Australia’s couple. His father later shifted to Australia. Lisa started her cricket practice right there.
Took 229 wickets while playing with Australia’s team

At the same time, he scored 2728 runs in 125 ODIs at an average of 30.65. He has also taken a total of 229 wickets in his international career.
