Back in the team after missing the one-day matches and the one-off Test match Down Under, India’s T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur promised on Wednesday to come out against Australia in the three-match series and said they should win it at all costs. India previously lost the ODI series by three matches 1-2 draw the historic pink ball test. But Harmanpreet missed both the one-dayers and the Test due to a thumb injury, and after recovering now, she is desperate to draw the curtains on the tour with a rare series victory.
“It’s a shame I missed the one – day matches and Tests, but if I had more days between one – day matches and the Test match I could have recovered and played. But it’s over now,” Harmanpreet said on the eve of the first T20 International here on Thursday.
“We now want to put everything in our pockets and win the series at any price. These three games are very important to us.”
Harmanpreet said the opportunity to play all three formats during a tour is a good sign for women’s cricket as a whole.
“In the past, we mostly played ODIs and T20s, but now we get the opportunity to play all three formats, which is good for us. I feel that everyone should get equal opportunities,” she said.
‘Before this series we played against South Africa and England after almost a year, but I can say that we are in good condition now. Playing cricket helps to improve the team in all areas. “
Harmanpreet said it is difficult for any player to play cricket in the midst of the pandemic while living in bio-safe bubbles.
“We did not play cricket for the past year, but then we got the opportunity. is how it is, ”she said.
