India women’s T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur has earned plenty of experience playing franchise cricket all around the world. Harmanpreet Kaur, however, will not be able to be a part of the Women’s Big Bash League this year as it coincides with the Women’s T20 League which is set to get underway in UAE.

Kaur was the first Indian cricketer to sign for WBBL and has enjoyed her time in Australia. She said that the WBBL has grown up to become a premier domestic competition worldwide and she will miss being a part of the league this time.

“The WBBL has always been a premier domestic competition worldwide, and I will definitely miss not being part of it,” she said at the launch of WTF Sports, a fantasy gaming app.

Kaur also applauded the decision taken by the cricket board to host the women’s T20 league. It will also be a special stage for the Indian women’s cricketer as they will be returning back to action for the first time since T20 World Cup

“It is fantastic news. As cricketers we haven’t played since the World Cup (T20 2020). We are raring to get back in action.”

“The T20 challenge in Dubai provides us the perfect opportunity to resume and kick start our preparations. I am sure we will continue from where we left off earlier this year.”

Kaur had also plied her trade for Surrey Stars in England’s Kia Super League, becoming the first India to play the tournament in 2017.
