After ICC, Now BCCI Can Take A Big Step Against Harmanpreet Kaur

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has responded firmly to the recent controversy surrounding Harmanpreet Kaur, the captain of the Indian Women’s cricket team, during their tour of Bangladesh.

After her on-field actions and post-match remarks courted controversy, Harmanpreet faced a two-match ban imposed by the International Cricket Council (ICC). In response, the BCCI has taken decisive steps to address the matter, with BCCI President Roger Binny and National Cricket Academy Chief VVS Laxman set to discuss the issue directly with Harmanpreet.

During the third ODI of the series in Bangladesh, Harmanpreet Kaur’s behavior drew significant attention and raised eyebrows. After being dismissed, she expressed frustration by venting her anger on the stumps and engaging in heated arguments with the umpires. Following the match, she publicly criticized the umpiring, describing it as “pathetic,” after the game ended in a tie.

In response to her actions, the ICC imposed a two-match ban on Harmanpreet Kaur, meaning she will miss the Indian Women’s team’s first two matches at the Asian Games 2023. The BCCI has also taken a proactive approach to addressing the issue internally.

Jay Shah, BCCI Secretary, announced that President Roger Binny and NCA Chief VVS Laxman will personally speak to Harmanpreet regarding her behavior. He emphasized that the time to appeal against the ICC’s decision has already passed.

Jay Shah stated, “We will have our President Roger Binny and VVS Laxman speak to her. The ICC has already banned her, and the time to appeal against the decision has already passed.”

During the tour of Bangladesh, India managed to secure a T20I series victory, winning the series 2-1 under Harmanpreet Kaur’s leadership. However, their performance was not without concerns. In the three-match ODI series, India’s batting faltered in the final match, where they were chasing a target of 226, resulting in the match ending in a tie. As a result, the series was shared 1-1.
