Providence (Guyana): A young Indian squad will aim to emerge from the shadows of a winless past when they launch their bid for a maiden title with a tough opener against New Zealand in the first standalone Women's World T20 starting here on Friday.

India have not been very competitive in the shortest format compared to the 50-over game in which they scripted a path-breaking moment last year when they reached the World Cup final.

In the end, nerves got the better of them and they lost the title clash to England after being in complete control at one stage. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and recently-appointed coach Ramesh Powar insist that the team has learnt from that final loss.
