“All I can say is that we will come back strongly and put a great show out there .”
Harmanpreet Kaur, who played a 52 off 34 balls knock in the T20 world cup semifinal against Australia. It was her unfortunate run out that shifted the momentum towards Australia.
“Can’t be unluckier than this, to get that momentum back when me and Jemi (Jemimah Rodrigues) were batting,” Harmanpreet said in the post-match presentation.
“And to lose after that, we didn’t expect this today. The way I got runout, can’t be unluckier than that.”
The 33-year-old also did a short post-mortem of India losing track of the game in the first innings, owing to poor fielding.
“We even though we didn’t play to our strengths, we reached the semis. We gave those easy catches away. Got to take those when you want to win. We misfielded. We can only learn from these lessons and not repeat the mistakes,” she said.
