Harmanpreet Kaur (Sydney Thunder)
Allrounder, right-hand bat/right-arm offspin
The first Indian woman to sign with a WBBL side, Harmanpreet Kaur comes across as a quiet achiever with plenty of aggression. In her first year playing down under, she couldn’t believe Australians ate so many sandwiches, clearly not a big fan of sambos herself. A power-hitter, Kaur cracked three massive sixes on debut for the Sydney Thunder in 2016. Back home in India, she’s a well-known superstar that has appeared in many TV campaigns promoting women’s sport. First seen in international action in 2009, one of her best performances came in the 2017 Women’s World Cup, where she scored an incredible 171 not out.
