After the match, Jemimah hailed the 'grit, determination and character' shown by the Indian cricketers throughout the tournament and posted an emotional message on Instagram for the entire unit.

"This team is different. The grit, determination and character shown throughout this tournament was something else. There were many special moments, but I guess at the same time cricket never stops teaching us. I know we didn't get the gold, but is it okay to say that I'm still proud of this team? We won't stop until we turn this Silver into Gold! "Sath Mein Girenge Sath Mein Uthenge Hum Hai Team India Hum Sath Mein Chalenge!," Jemimah wrote on her social media with multiple photos.
