Shikha Pandey credits coach W V Raman for resurgence

Mumbai: Indian medium pacer Shikha Pandey Monday said minor technical changes made by coach W V Raman has helped her to register career-best figures in the series-clinching win over England in the second ODI of the ICC Women’s Championship here.

Snubbed from last year’s World T20 squad, Pandey returned to the side with a bang and registered career-best figures of 4 for 18 to help India beat world champions England comprehensively by seven wickets and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

“There were a few technical issues, which were brought into my notice by Raman Sir. I was very surprised that I did not realise those (issues). He has been that assuring face in the dressing room,” Pandey said.

“He is someone who you can speak about bowling and he is always there with an opinion about it. I would say, he caught the flaw during the Challengers (he had come down to see the Challengers). Those minute things actually helped a lot,” she added.
