In one interview, she stated, “Chasing I think everyone in the Indian team enjoys. We also need to work on setting totals though. When they were batting, I realised it was an amazing wicket, I had my eyes on a big score. Didn’t want to make the same mistake as the last innings. Happy to see such wickets prepared for women’s cricket, you’ll get high scores, high run chases. I think this is one of the most entertaining games we’ve all been a part of.”

With the stadium filled with over 40,000 people, there were plenty of fans that celebrated India’s victory. In thanks for their support, the team took a lap of honour.
