MI Coach Edwards Admits Lack of Control in Final 12 Balls

Mumbai Indians head coach Charlotte Edwards attributed her team’s loss in the Women’s Premier League Eliminator to a lapse in control during the final 12 balls of the match, which ultimately cost them a spot in the final.

Reflecting on the game, Edwards said, “We would have taken 135 at the start of the game, considering the conditions. For the majority of the game, we were in control, but we didn’t handle the last 12 balls well, and that’s where we lost the match.”

She praised RCB for their fighting spirit and acknowledged that cricket is a game of fine margins. Edwards emphasized the disappointment of missing out on the final and acknowledged that the players would be disappointed too.

Regarding the team’s lower-order batting, Edwards mentioned that the players had enough practice and opportunities throughout the season. She believed that the loss was more about not playing well in the crucial moments rather than the lower-order batting performance.

Edwards highlighted Harmanpreet Kaur’s dismissal as the turning point of the match, mentioning that it gave RCB the momentum. She expressed confidence in Harmanpreet’s decision-making and emphasized that small margins decided the outcome of the match.

Despite the loss, Edwards praised Harmanpreet’s calm demeanor and leadership, stating that she is a valuable asset to the team. She concluded by acknowledging that the players would learn from this experience and come back stronger in the future.
