Harmanpreet Kaur is blazing all guns in the shortest format of the game and is at the peak of her batting prowess.
She will lead India in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2020. Women in Blue have been paired with Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and a team yet to qualify team.
Former Aussie skipper Alex Blackwell has praised the Indian skipper. “India are positioned to make a final. Sometimes we see Harmanpreet Kaur play within herself. But when she goes out there 100 per cent, she has proven to be very hard to stop,” Blackwell said.
Mitchell Starc’s wife and Australia’s wicket-keeper batswoman Alyssa Healy has cautioned her side from India’s top batswoman. “When I saw the fixtures announcement, I said, ‘Damnit!’ I was hoping to avoid them. India are such a powerhouse in the cricketing world, on the rise in the women’s game, which I think is special,” said Healy. “They have got some serious players which they are going to unleash. It is Harmanpreet Kaur’s home ground (from the Women’s Big Bash League), the Spotless Stadium, so definitely one to watch,” added Healy.
