The skipper has now won hearts of everyone with a heartful gesture before India’s second game against Pakistan. Harman carried an unwell mascot - who was a little girl - off the field, and then ensured that she was attended to off the field.

India won the match by a convincing margin and Mithali Raj was the star of the match.

“When you think that the team has gone through a lot of transition, and there are a lot of youngsters in the side, so at some point I’m thinking about more than myself, that whether I would be able to give the best or not. There are times when I think about the team, whether it is the right time to move forward, and I believe that now the team is settling, so it could probably be the last World Cup for me, the WT20 format,” Mithali said after the match.
