I Don't Regret Anything: Harmanpreet Kaur Breaks Silence On Umpiring Outburst In Bangladesh
Indian skipper Hamranpreet Kaur broke off silence on her controversial outburst on the umpires last month at the Sher-E-Bangla Stadium during the third ODI of the series against Bangladesh. Tensions rose after the game finished in a tie, with the Women in Blue captain expressing her displeasure with the umpiring choices made during the game.
Harmanpreet lost her temper after being dismissed during the frantic run chase and shattered the stumps with her bat.
Her statements in the post-match presentation nearly accusing the umpires of bias aggravated matters before the Bangladesh team walked out of the joint-photo session as the Indian captain asked the umpires to join them.
Harmanpreet was given a two-match suspension by the International Cricket Council (ICC). This means she will miss India's quarter-final and probably semi-final match at the 2023 Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, next month.
Harmanpreet has defended her behaviour and maintained that she has no regrets. The Indian captain claimed that she voiced her feelings and did not say anything harmful to anyone.
"I won't say I regret anything because, at the end of the day, as a player, you want to see that things are fair." "As a player, you always have the right to express yourself and your emotions," Harmanpreet Kaur told Cricket Paper.
"I don't believe I said anything inappropriate to any player or person." I simply said what occurred on the pitch. "I have no regrets," she added.
India had a forgettable visit of Bangladesh, struggling in the T20I series despite winning the series 2-1, and drew the ODI series by a hair's breadth as the final game finished in a tie.
Harmanpreet is presently playing in the Women's Hundred for the Trent Rockets.
