As A Player You Have The Right To Express: Harmanpreet Kaur
During the third ODI, Harmanpreet was controversially ruled out by the on-field umpire. She broke the stumps out of anger and spoke a few words to the umpire on her way back to the pavilion. The Indian skipper was not satisfied with the decision and argued with the umpire before leaving the field. She also hit her pads and hit the stumps with her bat in anger. She also gestured bat to signify that the ball hit the bat first.
She has now broken her silence on the incident and said that she does not regret her actions and whatever she said following the incident.
“I will not say that I regret anything because at the end of the day as a player you want to see that fair things are happening. As a player you always have the right to express yourself and what you’re feeling. “I don’t think I said anything wrong to any player or any person. I just said what happened on the field. I don’t regret anything,” she told The Cricket Paper on the sidelines of the Women’s Hundred.
