Harmanpreet Kaur Bhullar is one cricketer who is starting to take the Indian game by storm. Harmanpreet Kaur, an all-around player and the captain of the Indian women’s T20 cricket squad, is currently generating headlines for the WPL auction. During the auctions, the captain was traded to the Mumbai Indians franchise for 1.8 crores.
Women’s cricket still struggles to receive the long-overdue attention, despite the fact that in India it is no less than a religion. A bright spot for women’s cricket in India was the U19 women’s team winning the T20 world cup in January of this year. Aside from the recent victory, the rising career trajectories of women cricketers in the nation are further evidence that they are no less talented than males and will succeed in making their imprint in the sport in the years to come.
After learning of her selection, Harmanpreet Kaur told a news outlet, “I think it’s a game changer for all of us. I am quite happy to be under this strain for the first time, and at the same time, I know that it will fundamentally alter women’s cricket everywhere, not just in India but also throughout the world. We are all looking forward to that since it is a fantastic project. We would like to contribute in the same manner as the men’s team did back then for MI.
