For Indian Women’s cricket side, this is the second time heartbreaking moment which lost by nine runs in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 final against the hosts England. Vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur has said that each of the players failed to stop crying from rolling down.
In an interview to NDTV, vice-captain Kaur said “We were all crying after the match. Even those assisting our team were crying. We all contributed with some speeches and messages. But then our support staff said nobody will cry when we reach the hotel.”
“We then celebrated by eating dinner together. I’m really proud of my team because this has been my best moment and this is the best cricket we have played. Now, it’s like we lost enough, now we just want to keep winning.”
The 28-years-old women’s vice-captain Kaur, who knocks 171 off 115 balls against Australia in the semifinal match, said that she was hugely proud of their team. “Which city you are from doesn’t matter, what matters is what your thinking is. As dream has come true, a dream to play good cricket. Proud that we have made our country’s flag fly high.”
Kaur ended his words saying that people of Indian should keep supporting women’s cricket and keep supporting the team side and more girls need to take up the Gentlemen’s sports. “We have heard on social media that the country has woken up to women’s cricket.”
“The message to India is that keep giving us love like you’ve given right now. Motivate the girls of India to play cricket because currently, we are not seeing enough young girls playing cricket. Bring as many girls into sports because being represented is very important.”
