Indian Women’s Cricket Team faced England women’s at Chester-le-street where India faced 9 wickets defeat against the hosts in the 1st T20I.
After the match, Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur did not look happy with the pitch and she had some harsh words for the groundsmen and match referee. According to her, the match was wet due to waterlogging and she was not satisfied with the conditions.
In the post-match presentation, Harmapreet Kaur said, “I just feel we forcefully played. Not 100 percent conditions to play. The ground was too wet. So many chances to get injured. One of our players got injured also so we were one bowler short. I’m sure we’ll bounce back.”
