She contacted Kaur to apologize for her inappropriate behavior, noting that it made her team uncomfortable throughout the session.
“It is totally her problem. I have nothing to do with it. As a player, she could have shown better manners. I can’t tell you what happened, but it didn’t feel right to be there [for the photograph] with my team,” she said.
Sultana said her team returned because the weather was not conducive, adding, “Cricket is a game of discipline and respect.”
“It’s what she (Harmanpreet Kaur) did and we have nothing to do about it. But as a player, she should have spoken with a bit of manners. It’s completely her matter and I would not want to make any comments on her,” said Sultana.
Harmanpreet Kaur’s remark about ‘poor umpiring’ after the third ODI against Bangladesh went viral.
When the end-of-series image was being taken, Bangladesh-W captain Nigar Sultana and her team fled after Indian-W captain Harmanpreet Kaur yelled at BD Captian, “Why are you only here? You have not won the match. It was done for you by the umpires. Please contact them! We should take a picture with them as well.”
Harmanpreet Kaur has also been criticized on social media for her ‘disrespectful’ gesture towards the Bangladesh captain at a trophy presentation during the third ODI match.
