Indian women’s T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur on Saturday praised Coach Abhay Sharma for improving the fielding of the team and said the benefits of “personal sessions” with the players and the improvements were a little improved. Harmanpreet and Harleen Deol made a spectacular catch in the first T20 International on Friday night, but England managed to win by 18 runs.
At a virtual press conference, Harmanpreet said, ‘When you play as a team, you need rhythm and any member of the team can do it. When I took this catch, I was a force in the team and then Harleen got a good catch too. That’s why you need extra effort to bring that rhythm. “Throughout the match, our fielding was very good. We saved a lot of runs and we took some good catches, so I think it’s a good sign that our fielding has improved a lot,” he said.

Let us tell you that in the 19th over, Hermanpreet, while diving while fielding long, ended Nate Schriver’s spectacular innings by catching the ball a few inches off the ground. Two balls later, Harleen ended Amy Jones’ innings, jumping over the head to take a ‘reverse catch’ and then getting out of balance. But he threw the ball into the air and then jumped into the boundary and caught the ball again.
One-day captain Mithali Raj and batting great Sachin Tendulkar have praised Harleen as a catch, the video of which is viral. Commenting on the contribution of the fielding coaches, Harmanpreet said, “Abhay sir has been with us for some time and his knowledge will make you a better player and that will be reflected in our fielding.” “We put in a lot of effort before that, but they changed our fielding a little bit and had individual sessions with the players, which helped us,” he said.
