An incident occurred during the match between INDW and BANW that was played on July 22. Bangladesh played quite well, scoring 225 runs in 50 overs thanks to a century from Fergana Haque. India had a small target to chase, but Bangladesh was controlling the game from the outset. After losing two wickets very early, Smriti and Harleen came on and put on a partnership of 107 runs. Then one wicket fell, putting Team India in peril. However, Harleen gave it her all and they were almost able to chase the score. However, there was a controversy when the third ball was called, with the umpire awarding LBW.That is not out, but the umpire made a biased decision, claims HarManpreet.
We Indians never anticipate this behavior from the captain, but this is a win-at-all-costs game, therefore HarManpreet Kaur should not be held accountable for smashing his bat into the stumps and calling the umpire’s decision “pathetic” during the post-match presentation. HarManpreet was also criticized by the Bangladesh cricket board and skipper Niger Sultana, who added the phrase “it is totally her problem.” She should have behaved better as a player; I have nothing to do with it.
Former Indian cricketer Madan Lal criticized HarManpreet as well, saying that “BCCI should take very strict disciplinary action” because of her “pathetic behavior against Bangladesh.”
We team of Timesnews24 believe that all things happen in the heat of the moment, she is not like this, she is a very sweet and down to earth person. We wish her the best of luck for the future games.
