A historic win for Harmanpreet Kaur-led India over England. A massive 347-run win for India, creating history, and becoming the largest margin of a Test win for women across the world. Amazing efforts from the Indian women’s team. A deserving win, asserting dominance right from the first day and marking their massive win over England. India has topped all tables in Test cricket, all thanks to the team’s collaborative efforts in both innings.
The team is overwhelmed with emotions and so is the team’s captain. Another feather of honour added to the team’s hat of laurels. Jemimah Rodrigues was in conversation with Harmanpreet Kaur right after the historic win, and stated below are the captain’s raw, intuitive emotions after the game.
“I am blank right now. I am not able to get my words together” – Harmanpreet Kaur
India played the game at DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai. India’s 1st test game in 8-9 years and a massive win, with Harmanpreet Kaur leading the team in her first Test game. Harmanpreet stated, “To be honest, I am blank right now. I am not able to get my words together. It’s an emotional feeling for me. Playing a Test match after a long time, that too a one-sided game, it’s feeling great.”
While Jemimah asked the captain her feelings about the winning team, which is spirited and has named a record for the team, Harmanpreet Kaur said, “Whenever we are on the team, the energy that you guys (the team) bring is something special. I feel in a team if you have that energy, we can go and change any game any day.”
Jemimah also spoke about Harmanpreet Kaur’s continuation in the Mumbai Indians team, post the recent auctions that took place. The defending champions, Mumbai Indians is led by their successful captain, Harmanpreet Kaur. Jemimah links that something special about Mumbai, the DY Patil Stadium and Wankhede and now the incredible win over England.
Harmanpreet Kaur simply calls the ground “lucky”, while Jemimah’s calls her home “The Best”.
Cheers to India’s incredible win over England, making history.
