But somewhere we need to work more as a batting unit,” Raj said. Replying to a question, she said, “Against England we thought we could have done better, we will try not to repeat in tomorrows game the mistakes we made earlier. The girls do realise that every match is important in the World Cup. We have got some slip-ups and we have got another opportunity to make do with it. So, it is very important for us.” Asked if there was too much pressure on the shoulders of senior players like her, she replied, “I personally feel one player cannot get you a World Cup, may be one or two games we can win. But to win a big event, you really need everybody at certain stage to stand up and deliver for the team. The pressure definitely is on us as senior players to get the team going, but there are other players who will also be equally important.” West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor, meanwhile, said they will try to put the best foot forward. “We are looking to win and everyone will try their best,” she said, adding “tomorrows game is very important, it is a do-or-die kind of situation.” Apart from Taylor, West Indies have players like Hayley Matthews, Shaquana Quintyne, Shamilia Connell and Anisa Mohammed in their side.
