Despite the half-century innings of the team of Trailblazers skipper Smriti Mandhana, she could only manage 118 for eight wickets by Jamsen Radha Yadav who was adjudged ‘Player of the Series’. In response, the two-time champion Supernovas team could score 102 runs for 7 wickets in the prescribed 20 overs.
Harmanpreet stood at the crease despite the injury and was the top scorer by scoring 30 runs. But her team could not reach victory. He said, “The injury is not so bad but we learned a lot from this match.”
He said, ‘It was not so difficult to achieve this goal, but we could not form any major partnership. You wanted at least two good partnerships. It became very difficult because I got hurt while fielding. I tried my best but in the end it was not enough.
Regarding staying at home due to the lockdown caused by the corona virus, Harmanpreet said, ‘It was very difficult to sit at home, we should respect the situation. We should be safe, whether we are playing or not.
Radha Yadav (8 wickets in 3 matches) said about his 5 wickets during the match, ‘Nice to take 5 wickets but I am not happy because we lost. I was very happy to see the pitch because it was spinning. The plan was to do simple things, to be as normal as possible.
Talking about the lockdown, he said, ‘The lockdown was very difficult, but I improved my bowling a lot. Perhaps it is visible. I was playing continuously so I did not miss such a lack of ground.
