Indian women’s cricket team bowling coach Troy Cooley comments on Renuka and Pooja Vastrakar ahead of IND-W vs AUS-W Test. According to the coach, the fast bowlers in India have expanded their skill set and gained an understanding of when to employ their variations.


Indian women’s bowling coach Troy Cooley said on Tuesday after India’s training session at Wankhede Stadium ahead of the IND-W vs AUS-W Test that,

“[Renuka] is definitely improving every time I see her. She is coming from a couple of injuries and she has worked extremely hard to not only develop fitness but also to develop her skills. You are starting to see rewards now of all that hard work. Not only does she swing the ball back in naturally. She has now got the ball that straightens and leaves the right-handers.” Cooley further added,

“It is great to see her using the angles. I really like the way she is putting together the sequence of deliveries and the number of deliveries she has got in option. Her toolbox is quite big now and [she] is definitely using those tools in a strategic and tactical way.” Talking about Pooja Vastrakar, Cooley added that,

“She had a little bit of a sore knee and she came back through that nicely. Through rehab she dedicated herself to improve her run-up and get the most out of it. She has done a marvellous job there. Now she is more balanced at the crease. You can see the natural tendency now to get into the stumps and challenge those batters. She has got her run-up sorted which is great from a bowling coach [perspective] here. She has got enough pace and variations to be a good red-ball bowler.”


Cooley also added,

“I know behind the scenes what work they are putting in and the growth has been in line with the work they have done. The biggest improvement is they have added some skills and variations. Not only that, but the control and when to use them, that’s come into it quite nicely
