After the defeat of the women’s team, former captain Azharuddin was furious. By tweeting, he raised questions on the batting and common sense of this team.
Azharuddin furious on Team India
Azharuddin said after the defeat of Team India, ‘Crap batting by the Indian team. No common sense. Served the victory on a plate and gave it. This tweet of Azharuddin is being strongly condemned. Fans are reminding them how many times they have lost such matches to Australia under their captaincy.

Harmanpreet also disappointed with the loss
By the way, captain Harmanpreet Kaur also looked disappointed with the team’s defeat. Harmanpreet Kaur again expressed her disappointment at the batting collapse in the title match and admitted that her team will have to avoid repeating the same mistakes in the final. The Indian captain said after the match, ‘Every time in the big finals, we are repeating the same mistakes in batting continuously. This is something that needs improvement. He said, ‘We do not make mistakes like this in the league stage or bilateral series. Losing in the finals of the big tournament has made a home in our mind somewhere.
Let us tell you that India needed 50 runs in the last 6 overs and they had eight wickets left. India should have won easily then but they lost five wickets within 13 runs due to poor shot selection by the batsmen. India may have lost in the final but Harmanpreet is happy and satisfied with the performance of her team. The Indian captain said, ‘I know we were close to winning the gold medal but overall the team’s performance was good. We were participating in this competition for the first time and we are glad that we won the silver medal. According to Harmanpreet, the girls of the country will be inspired by this medal and they will start playing.
