Credit goes to all the support staff and teammates: Harmanpreet Kaur
Mumbai’s Indies captain Harmanpreet Kaur once again took the Woman of the Match award for her brilliant performance. During the post-match presentation, Harmanpreet Kaur credited her support staff and teammates for the team’s success in the tournament.
“Credit goes to all the support staff and teammates. The way we’ve been playing, we want to continue. We are very positive and they always want to do well for the team. When we got this team I was very happy, the country was doing well and now they will do the same for ME,” said Harmanpreet Kaur.
Harmanpreet Kaur further spoke about his batting in the match against Gujarat Giants.
“Positivity is giving all the results. When we play the last game at this wicket, it will initially score no runs. Once you get established, you will get runs. That’s what I did today. Whatever is working is what I’m doing. Sometimes you also have to see the dimensions of the limits. The leg side is short and a medium pace player was bowling and that’s why I went and last anyway you have to go but this was the longest limit and I couldn’t clear it,” Harmanpreet Kaur said. .
