Indian Women’s cricket team faced a stern challenge from England Women’s cricket team in the semifinal of the Commonwealth Games 2022 on Saturday. With stakes so high, Harmanpreet Kaur, the Indian captain was seen venting out her anger as she smashed a boundary during the Indian innings.
Fans on Twitter felt that they saw Kaur yelling ‘Ben Stokes’ in anger, just like former Indian captain Virat Kohli did infamously, many years ago. Thus, fans compared Harmanpreet to Kohli.
It’s absolutely natural for athletes to abuse during the game, particularly at the international level as seen before on multiple occasions, and Kaur didn’t hold back either.
