After losing the ODI and a Test match, India’s T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur again promised to make it all out in the three – match series against Australia.
India lost the three-match ODI series 1-2 to level the historic Pink Ball Test.
But Harmanpreet missed both ODIs and Tests due to a thumb injury and has now recovered and wanted to draw the curtains on the tour with a rare series win.
“I’m missed the ODIs and Tests, but if I had more days between the ODIs and the Tests I could have recovered and played. But it’s over now,” Harmanpreet said ahead of the first T20 international here on Thursday.
“We want to go all out now and win the series at any cost. All three matches are very important to us.
Harmanpreet said getting the opportunity to play in all three formats during a tour is a big sign for women’s cricket as a whole.
“Before we used to play mostly ODIs and T20s, but now we have the opportunity to play all three formats in our favor. I think everyone should have an equal chance,” he said.
“We played against South Africa and England almost a year before this series but I can say that we are in a better position now.
“Playing back-to-back cricket helps improve the team in all fields.”
Harmanpreet said it was difficult for any player to play cricket in the midst of an epidemic.
“We haven’t played cricket for the last one year, we had a chance. But living in bubbles was hard, spending a lot of time away from friends and family and following all the rules and regulations. But that’s it,” she said.
