Apart from that, Indian skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur came up with a strong reply to the broadcaster during the post-match presentation. She stood by her fellow teammate and went on to defend her. The reply from Harmanpreet has gone viral and it has also given another point of view for the experts to give it another angular think.
The host questioned Harmanpreet about the dismissal. She opted to avoid the question in the first instance but later she came up with a fiery reply to the broadcaster.

“To be honest, I thought you will ask about all ten wickets because they were not easy to take,” said Harmanpreet. Following this reply from Kaur, the crowd broke into cheers as they were aware of the fact that the presenter was actually trying to ask the Indian skipper.
Speaking of the match, then English skipper Amy Jones won the toss and asked the Indian girls to bat first in the last match of the series.
