Team India needed to chase down 11 runs required in the last over with Yastika Bhatia being India’s last hope. However, she failed to help India reach its target. She wasn’t part of India’s Starting XI however got the chance to play as a concussion substitute replacing Taniyaa Bhatia.

India was on the back foot when Yastika Bhatia came out to bat and pressure on her was pretty visible as she tripped when she walked out from the Indian dugout. The teammates including Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Jemimah Rodrigues left in splits as it happened. However, Bhatia stood up and didn’t seem to be embarrassed as she herself was also seen smiling.

Here is the video of the incident:

Harmanpreet Kaur scored a well-fought half-century and barring Jemimah Rodrigues, no other batter supported her during the innings. India women settled with silver while mighty Aussies became the champions once again. Also, New Zealand bagged a bronze medal after beating host England in the 3rd-place playoff.

The Indian skipper reckons most of her teammates do not have enough experience due to the lack of women’s cricket and that costs India in crucial matches. Previously, India had reached the Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 Final but again were beaten by Australia.

Harmanpreet Kaur had said, “Every time in big finals, we make the same mistakes again and again (with the bat), that is something we have to improve. We don’t do these mistakes in the league phase or in bilateral. That is blocking our mind somewhere.”
