Because of the COVID-19 situation we don’t know when we’ll come out next, so we wanted to give it our all,” Mandhana said at the post-match presentation after her team defended a modest 118.“140 was quite achievable and this is what I need to work on in finishing innings. 135 would have been ideal but nevertheless 118 was good on this wicket. It was a hard wicket to bat on and we had quality spinners.”Mandhana, who was also named player of the match for her 49-ball 68, said she had wanted to carry on but could not.Asked about life during coronavirus-forced lockdown, she said, “The first one two months of the lockdown was good to spend time with the family. The players in the last three-four months got time to go out and start hitting some balls.“It was a good time for all of us to go back and work on ourselves which we don’t get usually.”Losing captain Harmanpreet Kaur rued the lack of partnership in her side’s run chase.“It wasn’t that tough a total to chase but we just didn’t get partnerships. We needed two good partnerships, but we didn’t,” she said.“We couldn’t do it this time but it is part of the game and we’ll take it as a learning.”Harmanpreet, who top-scored for her side with 30 off 36 balls, batted with discomfort towards the end of her knock and she was seen limping while running between the wicket.“The injury isn’t that bad. It was really tough for me; while fielding only I got hurt but you have got to be there for the team. I tried my best but couldn’t win it for the team,” said the India T20 skipper.She said sitting at home during the lockdown was really difficult.“But we have to respect the things that are going on and be safe. Yes definitely, women’s cricket is back.”Player of the series for taking eight wickets, including a five-for on Monday, Supernovas’ Radha Yadav said the plan was to bowl the normal stock ball as the track was spinning.“It feels great to pick a fifer, but isn’t nice to not be on the winning side. I worked very hard on my bowling in the lockdown, and I think it shows. I was playing consistently even in the lockdown and I was in touch, so it didn’t feel like I was coming back after a long time,” said Yadav.
