One event that affected the result was Harmanpreet Kaur’s peculiar run out throughout the entire game. In the 15th over of India’s chase, Harmanpreet Kaur sprinted for a single on Georgia Wareham’s delivery. She completed a single, but when she tried to go back for a second, her bat got stuck in the middle, stopping her from going back to the crease. As the Indian captain was out for 52, wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy acted swiftly and took the bails off.
She stormed off unhappy by Harmanpreet’s ejection and walked irately towards the dugout. The other teammates displayed a similar response as everyone was in shock.
