Alyssa Healy has opened up on the run-out questioning effort of Harmanpreet Kaur. She said, “Just a bizarre play and I mean Harmanpreet can say all she likes that it was so unlucky, but I mean at the end of the day she cruised back and probably could have been past the crease, you know, an extra two meters if she genuinely put in the effort. So we’ll take it.”
