On Sunday, the final match of the Commonwealth Games 2022 featured a nail-biting contest between the Indian women’s cricket team and the Australian squad.

The hitter, Yastika, was walking out to bat in the game when she attempted to go over the advertisement board to enter the ground.

As soon as Yastika went down, her teammates in the dugout began laughing, including players such as Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, and Jemimah Rodrigues. Everyone in the Indian dugout temporarily forgot about the frantic chase against Australia and focused their attention solely on enjoying the moment to the fullest.

Taniya Bhatia was replaced in the starting lineup for the championship match by Yastika Bhatia, despite the fact that Yastika Bhatia had not been selected for India’s playing XI for the match.
