In an interview, she said,

    There was no time to react since the Indian team only found out about it at the toss. Obviously there was concern but it is the decision of the authorities. We were OK because she (McGrath) wasn’t very ill, so we just decided to play. We had to show the sportsman’s spirit. We’re happy that we didn’t say no to Tahlia because that (missing the final) would have been very hard-hitting for her.”
