After the Semifinal washout, India is now through to the final of the T20 World Cup 2020 as the women put up a wonderful show in the tournament. The match scheduled between India and England was abandoned as the rain falls in Sydney, during the match.
The captains of India and England Harmanpreet Kaur and Heather Knight respectively had an intense desire of leaving for the finals. However, it was so unfortunate for the English women to step back after the showers stopped the play.
Here are the words that both the leaders spoke after the poor climatic conditions running Indians into the finals:
Harmanpreet Kaur: “It is unfortunate not to get a game due to the weather. But that’s how the rules go. In future, it would be nice to have a reserve day. From day one, we knew that we have to win all the games because if in case we don’t get any play in the semifinals, it will be hard for us. Credit to the team, we wanted to win all the games and we did it.”
Heather Knight: “It is frustrating, [we] didn’t want the World Cup to end this way but not much you can do about this. Would have been good to have a reserve day perhaps. That loss to South Africa cost us. We expected to reach the semi-finals and that we did. We did feel like we had started to gain momentum in recent games and we were really ready for this semifinal. We were undone by the weather.”
