After the victory, Indian Captain, Mithali Raj said that, “There were anxious moments. But Sushma Verma’s contribution in the end was very crucial. Once we got 170, we thought it could be anybody’s game. It was one of those days when the top order failed and we will address that before the next match . Ekta has always delivered when she has been given the new ball. Her spell was very crucial. Her first spell actually got us back in the game. I believe that when you are defending a small target, one has to come out with proper plans. And if we aim to be the best team in the world, the bowling side should be able to come back and perform the way the girls have done today.”
The losing captain, Sana Mir said, ” It was our best bowling performance against India. If our batting had backed up the good bowling performance, we could have had a better game. Diana Baig is a wonderful athlete. As a captain, I’m very proud of her. When you’re playing against a good bowling side, you can’t play cross (batted) shots.”
