Harmanpreet Kaur at Post-Match Presentation

Harmanpreet Kaur looks angry in the post-match presentation as well. She said “I think a lot of learning for us from the game. Even apart from the cricket, the kind of umpiring that was happening we were very surprised. The next time when we come to Bangladesh we will make sure we have to deal with this type of umpiring and prepare ourselves accordingly.

“They (Bangladesh) batted really well, batted according to the situation. They were taking those singles which were very crucial. In between we leaked a few runs but when we were batting, we controlled the game very well as I mentioned earlier some pathetic umpiring was done and we are really disappointed about some decisions the umpires gave. “My hand is fine.

She [Harleen] looked very promising in the last game, so we promoted her to bat freely and she took the opportunity with both hands. Jemi was really good throughout the innings. She played that crucial inning for us. Good game, a lot of learnings, and lastly our High Commission from India is also there and I hope you could have invited him here, but that is also fine. And thank you sir for coming here.”

As the match and series tie, both teams share the Trophy. For that both the captain along with the team members comes to the stage and photo op with the trophy. Harmanpreet didn’t even stop there she can be seen calling “Bring the umpire too”. But this behavior of Harman pinch the Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana and they left the stage in anger.
