We are preparing well for World Cup: Mithali

India are scheduled to play only one series before the Women's World Cup early next year but ODI skipper Mithali Raj feels the team is getting the best preparation possible ahead of the mega event.

In the last nine months, India hosted South Africa before playing a three-match series in England and Australia. They lost all three series but made the mighty Australia work really hard for it and also ended their 26-match winning streak in the third ODI Down Under.

India will play World Cup hosts New Zealand before the ICC event in March-April. 'We have played three best teams since March and it has given us good preparation. Players have played domestic cricket and also in the Women's Big Bash so they are getting game time which is the most important thing.

'We are getting to play in New Zealand before World Cup which is also good,' said Mithali after a partnership between KFC and Indian Deaf Cricket Association was announced here on Wednesday.
