The Indian captain burst out her anger as she was convinced that the ball never touched her pads. She was frustrated due to the poor quality of umpiring throughout the series. Harmanpreet seemed angry during the post-match presentation too and let out her feelings while speaking to the presenter. 

The match was tied after a last-over drama. While chasing a 226-run target, Indian batters Harleen Deol and Smriti Mandhana constructed a brilliant partnership but India lost their last six wickets when they needed only 35 runs to win the game and the ODI series tied.

"The next time we come to Bangladesh...:" Harmanpreet Kaur didn't hold herself back during the post-match presentation

Harmanpreet Kaur said that her team needs a lot of learning from the game. She was surprised by poor umpiring and said India will be extra prepared when they next travel to Bangladesh in the future.

"I think a lot of learning for us from the game. Even apart from the cricket, the kind of umpiring that was happening we were very surprised. The next time we come to Bangladesh we will make sure we have to deal with this type of umpiring and prepare ourselves accordingly. They (Bangladesh) batted really well, batted according to the situation. They were taking those singles which were very crucial. In between we leaked a few runs but we controlled the game very well. When we were batting as I mentioned earlier some pathetic umpiring was done. We are really disappointed about some decisions given by the umpires," Harmanpreet Kaur said.
