On Sunday, Harmanpreet Kaur received appreciation not for her batting but for her gesture towards a little girl, who was a mascot standing with the players during India-Pakistan match
Georgetown: After setting the ICC Women's World T20 alight with a record century, India captain Harmanpreet Kaur won hearts for her gesture towards a little girl before the start of their match against Pakistan on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Harmanpreet hogged the limelight last week when she blazed her way to a 51-ball 103 against New Zealand in India's opening match of the tournament.
She became the first Indian batter to score a century in T20Is. Thanks to her hurricane ton, India eased to 34-run victory.
On Sunday, Harmanpreet received appreciation not for her batting but for her gesture towards a little girl, who was a mascot standing with the players during India-Pakistan match.
As is the norm before every match at ICC events, both countries' national anthems were played. Soon after that, a girl fell ill and Harmanpreet noticed it and was quick to carry her and hand her over to an official on the ground.
A video was posted by a user on Twitter which showed Harmanpreet's warm gesture and she was praised for it.
Later, India defeated Pakistan by seven wickets. Harmanpreet remained unbeaten on 14 as the “women in blue” successfully chased down 134.
