Harmanpreet Kaur said in the post-match presentation ceremony: “As a team we have learnt a lot. Fielding is something we were not up to the mark and after this break, we will work on our fitness and fielding to come back stronger.”

The Indian skipper said that her team needs to step up in the limited-overs cricket. She noted: “The last month we played very good cricket. They (Australia) played white-ball cricket better than us.”

Kaur signed off by saying, “We know that we can take our time in red-ball cricket but we need to be on our toes in white-ball cricket. We always give them a fight, we were not going to give them anything easily, that is something I’m proud of my team. A lot to learn from them (Australia) as well.”
