THE IM­PORT

Har­man­preet Kaur (Syd­ney Thun­der)

ABC Cricket - - WBBL -

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.
