WPL is only going to be bigger: Harmanpreet Kaur, Mumbai Indians skipper
Mumbai Indians skipper Harmanpreet Kaur expressed that the Women’s Premier League is going to strengthen Indian cricket. She added that it will make India a powerhouse in women’s cricket. Harmanpreet Kaur also shared that just like the Women’s Big Bash League and The Hundred, the Women’s Premier League too will help bring the talent in the country forward. She said,
“The Hundred is really special for women’s cricket. I only expect WPL is only going to be bigger. It is massive for Indian cricket, make the Indian team stronger in a couple of years.”
“It is going to carve out unbelievable talent. The tournament is going to make India a powerhouse of women’s cricket for the next few years,” she added.
“I think this (WPL) is a great platform for all Indian players. We have been missing this tournament for a long time. In Australia, the WBBL, and The Hundred in England have produced so many hidden talents. After the WPL, we are definitely going to get some great talents,” said Harmanpreet Kaur.
Mumbai Indians squad: Harmanpreet Kaur, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Amelia Kerr, Pooja Vastrakar, Yastika Bhatia, Heather Graham, Issy Wong, Amanjot Kaur, Dhara Gujjar, Saika Ishaque, Hayley Matthews, Chloe Tryon, Priyanka Bala, Humairaa Kaazi, Neelam Bisht, Jintamani Kalita, Sonam Yadav.
