NEW DELHI:Indian women’s cricket team vice-captain, Harmanpreet Kaur, became the first Indian to join a Big Bash League club after BCCi approved its female playes to join foreign leagues. The Sydney Thunder, who have also won the inaugural Women’s Big Bash League, confirmed in a statement on their official website. The talented cricketer had previously talked about joining the club, but was waiting for the no objection certificate from the Indian cricket board. “It’s a great feeling,” said Harmanpreet.
“The WBBL is a great platform for women’s cricketers, being the first player from my country to sign a contract for a BBL club is one of my best moments. “My aim is to serve my team to win the WBBL title for the second time in a row,” Harmanpreet added. “Playing with the best players against the best players is always a great feeling.
I would definitely learn a lot of things from them all.” Harmanpreet had a good run over the past one year. She also impressed with her form on India’s tour of Australia, scoring 31-runs of 46 ball to take India over the victory line in Adelaide. The 27-year-old all-rounder will be looking to capitalise on her big signing when she makes her debut in December in the WBBL.AGENCIES
