Harmanpreet Kaur, the captain of the India Women’s team, now has more T20I caps than any other player in both men’s and women’s cricket. She has now surpassed India men’s skipper Rohit Sharma (148 games) to write history with her 149th T20I appearance.
In the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup 2023, Harmanpreet reached a milestone when she took the field against England Women on Saturday. Suzie Bates of New Zealand is ranked third overall for most T20 International appearances.
It’s important to note that Harmanpreet is the most successful female skipper in T20 Internationals. She has a win percentage of 60.11 in 93 T20I matches, winning 53 of them. With 41 victories in 72 games, former India captain MS Dhoni is ranked second among men’s and women’s captains.
The 33-year-old recently led the Indian women’s team to victories over Pakistan and the West Indies. She will now try to defeat England Women in the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 to complete a hat-trick of victories.
England scored 152 runs in their innings with Nat Sciver-Brunt top scoring for them (50) with a finishing blow from Amy Jones (40) and Renuka Singh Thakur took a five-wicket haul.
