Bio

Harmanpreet Kaur grew up playing cricket with both men and women, with her father being her first ever coach.

Making her WODI debut at the age of 20 in the 2009 ICC Women's Cricket World Cup, the all-rounder registered impressive bowling figures of 10 runs conceded off 4 overs.

Kaur made her WT20I debut the same year in the 2009 ICC Women's World Twenty20.

Alongside her list of incredible knocks in WODIs & WT20Is, Kaur also has a few firsts to her name. In 2016, she became the first ever Indian, male or female, to sign a Big Bash League contract - with Sydney Thunder welcoming her that year. In 2017, she also became the first Indian to sign up with the Kia Super League.

Kaur was offered WODI captaincy for the first time in 2013, while taking over as captain of the T20I side in 2016.

Her 171* in the 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup is the highest individual score by an Indian in Women's cricket World Cup history.

Kaur's T20I exploits also saw her secure a spot in the ICC Women's T20I Team of the Year in 2017.
