During their one-off Test match in Mumbai, India’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Australia’s captain Alyssa Healy got into a heated argument. An all-format series between Australia and India will begin with a Test match at Wankhede Stadium. In a Test match, the Women in Blue want to defeat the Australians for the first time.

Notably, on the third day of the four-day Test match, India captain Kaur and her Australian rival Healy had a verbal exchange. The event happened while the hosts were in severe need of a wicket and Kaur was delivering her fourth over of the second innings.

Harmanpreet Kaur throws the ball at Alyssa Healy

The Australian captain returned Kaur’s fuller ball to her. As soon as the Indian captain saw Healy emerge from her crease and strike the ball, she sent the ball directly to her. The ball rushed towards Healy, who attempted to block it with her bat, and it ricocheted to the deep third fence, where it went for a four.

The Australians were awarded four runs after the Indian captain also appealed for impeding the pitch, but his appeal was dismissed. Healy and Kaur also exchanged a few remarks.

On Harmanpreet Kaur’s subsequent delivery, though, Healy was out LBW after being beaten in a planned sweep. Despite asking for a review, the Australian skipper ultimately burned it.

Watch the video below:

Australia managed to stay in the match by scoring 233 runs and taking India’s first three wickets early in the innings. With five wickets remaining, the visitors enjoy a 46-run advantage.

Many have stated that Harmanpreet Kaur has a golden arm, and she demonstrated this when she dismissed Tahlia McGrath and ended Healy and the all-rounder’s 66-run stand.

With that wicket, the hosts were able to prevent Australia from controlling the innings’ pace. Healy returned to the pavilion as well. With a lead of just 46 runs, players like Ash Gardner and Annabel Sutherland will have to start from the beginning on Day 4.

India will be aware that they have a chance to chase down the total and win the Test match in history if they finish the Aussies early.
