Indian women’s skipper team Mitali Raj on Saturday, she said she was surprised when the referees lifted the bail to abruptly end their one-time test against England, even though her teammates in the middle wanted to keep fighting.
Debutants Sneh Rana and Tania Bhatia, who had picked up a match-saving partnership of 108 broadcasts for the ninth goal on the last day, were on the cusp when the referees stopped the game due to a bad light last week.
Rana was undefeated at 80 at the time and had a good chance of making his debut for a century, but was denied the opportunity, although the Indians told their opponent skipper Heather Knight that the batter wanted to keep playing.
“We wanted to continue, we informed the opposing captain. I was also on my feet when I saw that the guarantees were lifted. Sneh Rana said that the judge took a bad light. We were told that,” Raj told a virtual press conference.
“But then the two teams greeted each other. It is largely assumed that the match is over. This is what Sne Rana told me.”
England had imposed a follow-up on the visitors after they folded for 231 while chasing the hosts from the first inning for a total of 396 for nine announced.
The Indians put on a much better show in their second effort and tied, finishing at 344 for eight.
Deepti Sharma scored 168 balls 54 in the top row, while Rana, beating number 8, scored the most with an undefeated 80 of 154 balls to thwart the English.
