Harmanpreet Kaur satisfied with return to form: Always there for my team at World Cups

Harmanpreeet Kaur said on Tuesday that she always wants to do her best for Team India and that she takes on a lot more extra responsibility during the World Championships. The star batter from India was in fine form at the 2022 Women’s World Cup, overcoming a losing streak that saw her place on the team in question.

Harmanpreet Kaur was dropped from the Indian XI for the 4th ODI of a 5 match series in New Zealand last month but the T20I captain has returned in style. Their 71 against New Zealand was followed by a spectacular Century (109 of 107) against the West Indies.

Interestingly, 3 of Harmanpreet’s 4 ODI hundreds have come at the Worlds as the vice-captain became the first Indian batter to score more than 2 hundreds at the Worlds when she hit 109 against the West Indies.

Ahead of the crucial clash against England at Mount Maunganui, Harmanpreet said she will try to keep doing her best for the team.

“Big tournaments are always very important and where your role is more important. You have to take more responsibility and perform for your team,” said Harmanpreet on the eve of India’s fourth game at the Women’s World Cup.

“I always want to do my best for my team but sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to but I will make sure I’m always there for my team when we play the World Cup and that’s why” , she said .

INDIA EYE GAINING MOMENTUM

India sits 3rd in the 8-team points table with 2 wins from 3 games. They opened their campaign with a dominant win over Pakistan but were comprehensively outplayed by New Zealand. However, India rallied against the West Indies as vice-captains Harmanpreet and Smriti Mandhana hit 100 each, helping them on 155 runs to win.

Harmanpreet said it’s important not to worry too much about the pros and cons and focus on creating winning momentum in the tournament. India meets England, Australia, Bangladesh and South Africa in the remaining league games.

“I think for us it’s very important that we continue the way we performed in the last game, instead of thinking about what (are) your negative points and what (are) your positive points,” she added added.
