Harmanpreet Kaur, the Indian women’s T20I skipper, has been spending all her time at home in the quarantine period. The coronavirus pandemic has kept nearly the entire world in a standstill. In India, the lockdown has been extended to May 3 as a precautionary measure. Kaur, nevertheless, has found ways to communicate with her supporters through social media platforms.

The veteran has been keeping herself engaged with cooking and other household chores. However, of late, one of his videos has left his supporters in splits. The 31-year-old seemed to have performed a magic trick, using a mirror and glass. In the clip on Instagram, Kaur was seen standing in front of a mirror, holding a glass with a ball in it. Then she threw the ball on the mirror.

To the naked eye, it appeared as if her mirror reflection was catching the ball in a glass itself.  She captioned the video and wrote, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who the realest of them all,”

Kaur straining to perform for India

Kaur was last a part of the Women in Blue in the T20 World Cup in Australia. Even as her team qualified for the final against the hosts, her own form was horrendous to say the least. In five matches during the mega event, Harmanpreet notched 30 runs at a forgettable average of six. The Punjab-born crossed the double-digit mark only once against Sri Lanka.

She started the year with a knock of an unbeaten 42 versus England in Canberra. To her dismay, after getting a couple of scores in the 20s, she experienced a massive slump in form. Her prowess on the field have also been questioned during this period. The who’s who of Indian cricket has also advised her to give up captaincy and solely focus on her batting skills.

It’s the same Harmanpreet, who smashed a 51-ball 103 against New Zealand in the opening match of the 2018 World T20 in the West Indies. In 114 T20Is, Kaur has notched 2,186 runs at an average of 26.98 with one century and six half-centuries to show for her efforts.
