India’s T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur showed great sportsmanship when she carried a disabled girl in her arms after the completion of National Anthem. Kaur took the girl in her arms and handed the girl over to the official. The incident happened when India and Pakistan Women players lined up for their respective national anthems.
Meanwhile, India was able to cruise to a seven-wicket win after beating arch-rivals Pakistan. Mithali Raj played a fine knock of 56 runs to take her team close to the target. Thus, the veteran batswoman was awarded the Man of the match. Pakistan was restricted to a paltry score of 133-7 in their allotted overs after Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss and decided to bowl first.
Poonam Yadav and Dayalan Hemalatha scalped two wickets each to put Pakistan on the backfoot. Subsequently, India was able to get to the target with an over to spare.
Therefore, it has been a tremendous start for India’s women team in the ongoing ICC Women World T20. They had won their opening match against New Zealand by 34 runs after Harmanpreet Kaur had played a blistering knock.
India’s skipper had become the first Indian Women player to score a T20I hundred. The combative right-hander had brought her hundred in just 49 balls as she came with her best.
Thus, India has won both their matches in the ongoing World T20. Subsequently, they look all set to make it to the semifinal of the mega event.
India will next lock horns with Ireland on November 15 at the same venue of Providence Stadium in Guyana.
Here is the video in which Harmanpreet Kaur shows a fine spirit.
