Harmanpreet Kaur re-signs for Melbourne Renegades to play in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) Season 8

The Melbourne Renegades have re-signed India women’s cricket team captain Harmanpreet Kaur for the eighth Women’s Big Bash League season (WBBL). The Renegades acknowledged this in writing on Monday, July 4. The Melbourne-based team welcomed Kaur back to their team by posting on their official Twitter account.

Harmanpreet Kaur received recognition for her outstanding performance in the previous edition, in which she had a dream run with both the bat and the ball. Kaur ended as the top run-scorer with 406 runs. She earned the title of Player of the Tournament and finished with 15 wickets, which was the most in the competition.

Harmanpreet 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. 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 do that, make the finals again and put ourselves in a position to compete for the title.”

Harmanpreet Kaur is the first Indian woman to score a century in women’s T20I

Returning to the shortest format of her international career, Harmanpreet Kaur has scored 2,411 runs in 124 games, including a century and six half-centuries. She has also claimed 31 scalps. Kaur is an excellent T20I batsman.

In fact, in a Women’s T20I in November 2018, she became the first Indian woman to score a century. The strong batter completed 100 T20 Internationals in October 2019, making him the first Indian cricketer, male or female, to do it. The Indian women’s team advanced to the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup finals in Australia under the direction of the 33-year-old.
