Hope To See Women’s IPL Start Soon In India: Harmanpreet Kaur

Harmanpreet Kaur is the first Indian to play in both Australia's WBBL and the Super League in England

Mumbai: After becoming the first Indian to be named WBBL Player of the Tournament, Indian women’s T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur said she is hopeful and eagerly waiting for the women’s Indian Premier League (IPL) to happen soon.

“I think we have been looking at this for a long time and I hope, you know, sooner this women’s IPL will also start and we will also invite overseas players over there so that they can also share their experience with our domestic players,” said Harmanpreet as reported by ESPNcricinfo.

“I think this is something we are really waiting for and I hope, you know, this will start. Performance is something that is in our hands and that’s what we have been doing and the rest of the things are totally dependent on BCCI and the cricket board,” she added.

Melbourne Renegades star Harmanpreet Kaur became the first Indian player to be named the Women Big Bash League (WBBL) Player of the Tournament. The Women’s Big Bash League is the Australian women’s domestic Twenty20 cricket competition.

She scored 399 runs in the tournament at an average of 66,50 and strike-rate of 135,25, including three match-winning half-centuries.

Harmanpreet has been breaking ground for Indian women’s cricket ever since becoming the first Indian to play in both the WBBL and the Super League in England.

By playing such tournaments, Harmanpreet hopes to inspire the next generation of players.

“Playing any tournament will give you lots of confidence and WBBL is something, you know, it’s a very, very big platform back home. Every Indian wants to play in this league and I was the first one who got this opportunity to play and today, you know, winning this player of the tournament definitely gives lots of confidence to Indian girls also,” said Harmanpreet.

“They can also come here and perform and, you know, be part of this and then there are all the chances to achieve a lot in their cricket career, she added.
