It is a great pleasure to win the World Cup for the first time in the jersey of the Indian team,” the youngster told CricketNext in an interview.
“The country has become a champion. That is a proud moment. It feels good to think that I have also contributed to becoming the champion of the country. I hope I have been able to fulfil the responsibility that was given to me,” she further added.
Asked about her favourite player, Titas said that is was Jhulan Goswami and said that the legendary Indian bowler’s tips helped her in the tournament.
“Didi (Jhulan Goswami) is my favourite cricketer. It feels good when you keep everyone’s trust. Didi gave me many tips. I have been able to use them,” the player concluded.
The victorious Indian team has been invited to watch the 3rd T20I match between India and New Zealand at Ahmedabad, scheduled to be played on Wednesday, 1 February.
