The Indian women’s team lost the three-match ODI series 1-2, which was followed by a historic pink ball Test draw. Harmanpreet was unable to play in both ODIs and Tests due to a thumb injury. Now she has recovered from the injury and is looking forward to end the tour with a win in the T20I series.
Harmanpreet said on the eve of the first T20 International on Thursday, ‘It is unfortunate that I could not play in ODIs and Tests, but if there was more time between ODIs and Test matches, I could have played after recovering from injury. But now that is a thing of the past. He said, ‘Now we want to go on the field and do our best and win the series at any cost. These three matches are very important for us. Harmanpreet said that getting a chance to play all three formats on one tour is a good sign for women’s cricket.
“Earlier, we used to play mostly ODIs and T20s, but now we are getting opportunity to play in all the three formats which is good for us. I think everyone should get equal opportunity. “Before this series, we played South Africa and England after almost a year, but I can say that we are in good form now,” she said.
Harmanpreet said that playing cricket consistently helps the team to improve in every department. He said that it was difficult for any player to play cricket amid the pandemic by staying in a ‘bio-bubble’. He said, ‘We did not get to play cricket in the last one year and then we got the opportunity. But living in a bio-bubble, being away from friends and family for long periods of time and following all the rules and regulations was difficult. But it is so.’
