Chinese Taipei had given the women’s team a tough competition in the previous match, which ended in a 34-34 tie. Now, Chinese Taipei has made it to the final as well, defeating Iran, the strong contender for the gold medal. This suggests that the Chinese Taipei team can be a formidable opponent. Therefore, the Indian women’s team needs to be fully prepared this time.
India will need a strong defense
Chinese Taipei employed a strong strategy in their first match against India. Their team consistently earned bonus points and didn’t attempt touch points. They had secured more than 10 points through bonuses alone. Team India cannot afford to give away bonuses easily this time. If raiders go for bonuses, they will have to put pressure on them. Captain Ritu Negi and Priyanka Palaniya need to step up in defense. Team India needs to focus on their defense, as it has not been up to the mark so far. In the raiding department, Pooja Hathwala, Pushpa Rana, and Nidhi Sharma have been performing exceptionally well.
Probable starting seven for the women’s team in the final:
Ritu Negi (Captain), Sakshi Kumari, Pushpa Rana, Nidhi Sharma, Jyoti, Pooja Hathwala, and Priyanka Palaniya.
