Indian women white-ball captain Harmanpreet Kaur has signed a new contract with the WBBL boss team Melbourne Renegades. Last season Harmanpreet became the most important player on the team, and her performance helped the team sit in the top position. Kaur resigned with Renegades for the second time to play in the upcoming WBBL 2022-23 season.
Harmanpreet Kaur is one of the most important players on the Indian team. She has led India to victory in many tournaments. She has played more than 250 matches for India in all formats. The all-rounder is a fearsome name to her opponents.
Harmanpreet is mostly famous among his fans and opponents causes of her destructive batting and handy off-spin ball. She could destroy any players with her spin ball. She has taken wickets of many legendary batters at the game’s most important time. Kaur is also well known as a game saver with her excellent batting skills.
In the 2021-22 Women’s Big Bash League, Kaur played for the WBBL’s favorite team Melbourne Renegades. Her last season’s performance made Renegades resign from Kaur for the second time.
Harmanpreet batted in number four for Renegades. She scored 406 runs at an average of 58, including 18 sixes, the most in the competition, in her last season with Renegades. She also took 15 wickets. This was the biggest running and wicket-taking score for the team.
After the 2021-22 season ended, Harmanpreet offered a new contact with Renegades. She resigned for a second season with the club to play in the upcoming WBBL. Kaur said, “I’m excited to be coming back to the Renegades. I really enjoyed being part of the team environment last season and feel like that helped me produce some of my best cricket.”
She added, “Personally, I just wanted to play my role for the team, and it was pleasing to be able to do that.”
“We supported each other as a team last year and were able to get some good results, but we still have plenty of room to improve. Hopefully, we can make the finals again and put ourselves in a position to compete for the title.”
Harmanpreet Kaur became the third international player to win the WBBL’s top individual honor award:
Kaur has announced the Player of the Tournament in the WBBL 2021-22 season with 406 runs and 15 wickets. This is the biggest individual honor in the WBBL competition.
Before Kaur, only two international players won that award, Sophie Devine (twice) and Amy Satterthwaite.
Melbourne Renegades General Manager, James Rosengarten, said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have Harmanpreet returning to our club this summer.”
“Harmanpreet is one of the best players in the world; her record speaks for itself. She was outstanding for us last season and was a match-winner on multiple occasions, having a prolific impact across the tournament with both bat and ball.”
