Harman’s health deteriorated a day before the semi-finals; He bravely faced the kangaroos and won everyone’s hearts
India’s journey in the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 came to an end as they lost in the semi-final. The first semi-final took place on Thursday (February 23) in Cape Town with India Women vs Australia Women. The Australian team won the match by 5 runs and entered the final, while the Indian team was eliminated from the tournament. Thus once again the Indian team’s dream of winning the T20 World Cup was left unfulfilled. Although India lost the match, captain Harmanpreet Kaur won everyone’s hearts. Let’s find out how…
Defending champions Australia, while batting first in this match, set up a challenge of 172 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Chasing this challenge, the Indian team could score only 167 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. So Australia won this match by 5 runs. Interestingly, in the previous 2020 season as well, Australia won the World Cup by defeating India in the final in their home country.
Dedication by Harmanpreet Kaur
Harmanpreet Kaur played a very brave knock against Australia in the semi-final. In fact, she was very ill a day before the match. She also had to go to a hospital in Cape Town as her health deteriorated. Even on the day of the match on Thursday, her playing was still in doubt, but she recovered after taking medicine and took the field.
Harmanpreet had informed about her health during the coin toss. She said, “Yes, my health was not good a day before the match. I had to go to the hospital. I took some medicine as per doctor’s advice and now feel good to play. It’s a big game for us and I didn’t want to sit out this game.”
