During the 15th over of the Indian innings in the semi-final match against Australia, set batsman Harmanpreet Kaur’s bat got stuck in the pitch while running. Due to which she was run out. After the match, almost everyone believed that Harmanpreet Kaur was unlucky. But Australian keeper Alyssa Healy doesn’t think so at all. Taking a dig at the Indian captain, he said in a video, ‘This is a strange incident. Harmanpreet can admit that she was unlucky. But Merko feels he didn’t try hard enough. She probably could have reached the crease with time. If she tried properly, it was just a distance of two meters. We do not regret it.
He said, ‘You can call yourself unlucky for this all your life, but it is about the effort and energy in particular at that time. We talk about it during the game. It is those little things that give you the edge over the opposition and help you win big tournaments. I think we are doing these things in the right way.
Belinda Clarke praised
Alyssa Healy also mentioned during the video that she was complimented by Belinda Clarke for running out Harmanpreet Kaur after the semi-final match. At the same time, Alyssa also revealed that in the situation Harmanpreet Kaur was in, she often does not drop the bails. Because doing so seems to waste their time. Healy told
Healy said, ‘It’s fun. Belinda Clarke messaged me after the match congratulating me for bringing down the bails. It’s very interesting because I don’t often drop bails in that type of position. I think it is a waste of time. Later they have to put me back. But somehow it felt right to drop the bails at that moment.
