“If We Have Created This Problem…”: Yuvraj Singh’s Unique Gesture For Indian Cricket Team Captain Harmanpreet Kaur




Indian cricket team captain Harmanpreet Kaur is currently enjoying a good time as her team is in the semi-finals of the Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa. She has now become the first player to feature in 150 T20Is. And he will hope that his team will reach the finals as well. Ahead of the semi-finals, former India star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh made a unique gesture for Harmanpreet. He shared a video on social media which shows that Harmanpreet Kaur does not appear when the words ‘Indian Cricket Team Captain’ are searched on Google. The search result only displays the names of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya as captains of the Indian cricket team.

“If we created this problem, we also have the power to fix it. Let’s do it for women’s cricket! Use this hashtag: #IndianCricketTeamCaptainHarmanpreetKaur #Twitter #Quora #LinkedIn and spread the word on #Reddit Spread the word and make a difference!” he tweeted.

Even Suresh Raina shared the same video.

Meanwhile, Harmanpreet has admitted that India’s inability to rotate strike is a “worrying” sign, adding that the team is discussing how to address their long-standing woes ahead of the Women’s T20 World Cup semi-finals. Here’s how to solve the dot-ball issue. India on Monday qualified for the semi-finals of the marquee event after a five-run win over Ireland under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

However, strike rotation is a huge issue for the Indian team. The ‘Women in Blue’ have struggled with strike rotation in the series against Australia in December and even in the tri-series that ended earlier this month. The problem persisted as India consumed 51 and 41 dot balls in the Group 2 matches against England and Ireland respectively.

“Dot balls are something that is already troubling us,” Kaur said at the post-match press conference.

“In the next game, we would love to see some improvement in that area as well. Against England, we played a lot of dot balls. These kinds of things we are already discussing in the team meetings.

“But sometimes, when the other team is bowling very well, at the end of the day, when you get 150, that wicket is a par score for you.” Against Ireland, the Indian batsmen struggled to score runs. India were going for less than seven runs per over before Smriti Mandhana, who was dropped four times, found her groove in the latter half of the innings.
