Mandhana believed that India is a team transformed into the shortest format, and attributed it to the head coach. WV Raman .
T20 was never our best format, one day it was definitely the preferred format. Now we are playing each format equally well. That is one thing that the coach has helped us with and we have developed massively, he said.
The young people who entered have completely changed the configuration and the best part of the tournament was that it was a complete performance of the team. That's something Raman has done: develop as a team, not just as one or two players. Today, it didn't work, but we have grown as a team, not just as one or two players.

Shafali and I were standing together when we received our medals. I was crying. I told him that I had to be really proud of the kind of campaign he had had. When I played my first World Cup at age 16. , He couldn't hit the ball 20 percent of what she can hit, Mandhana said.
You have to be really proud of the way you played, but I was upset about the way it came out. You are already thinking about how you can be better. I should leave her alone, that's all I can tell her.
