Harmanpreet Kaur, India’s captain, sends an emotional message to fans following the team’s elimination from the Women’s T20 World Cup.

India captain Harmanpreet Kaur has sent an emotional message to fans following the team’s semi-final elimination from the Women’s T20 World Cup to Australia. On Thursday, the Indian team suffered a sad five-run defeat to the great Australians in the competition. At one point, India appeared to be cruising while pursuing the goal of 173, with Kaur getting a magnificent fifty.

However, disaster struck when India’s captain was run out at a key point in the game after her bat became jammed on the pitch while attempting the second run. This proved to be the pivotal point in the Australian team’s comeback, as they advanced to the World Cup final. Kaur has now broken her silence following the loss, taking to Twitter to address her admirers and deliver them an emotional message. In her statement, India’s skipper acknowledged the supporters first and expressed her sadness at the team’s defeat. Kaur went on to say that the team would bounce back strongly after the devastating loss and put on a tremendous performance on the field.

“This is for all our fans across the globe who have supported us throughout this World Cup . I thank you for believing in our journey. I know as a cricket fan it’s sad to see your team lose . All I can say is that we will come back strongly and put a great show out there,” said Kaur on Twitter.

After the match, Kaur had said that India could have won the semi-final with an over-to-see if she was there till the end.

“If my bat didn’t get stuck, that run would have easily happened. If I had stayed till the last moment, the game would have finished an over before given the momentum we had. But even after that, Deepti Sharma was there, Richa Ghosh was there. I had belief that they could get the job done. If you have seen the matches till now, Richa have batted brilliantly. But after my dismissal, there were seven or eight dot balls and that was the turning point of the match. Otherwise, we had good momentum and things were going well,” said Kaur.
