Hailed as the Virender Sehwag of India women’s cricket team, Harmanpreet Kaur dominated the headlines of almost every national daily as she became the first woman from the country to record a century in the shortest format – T20 cricket in the ongoing ICC Women’s World T20. Harmanpreet’s 103 off just 51 balls propelled the women in blue to a 34-run win over New Zealand in the World T20 opener. The hitting was incredible and the sixes unbelievably monstrous, her carnage included eight sixes, some of them towering, and seven boundaries.
After her memorable innings, the Indian team skipper has now won hearts of everyone with a touching gesture before the much-anticipated clash against arch-rivals Pakistan. Harman carried an unwell mascot – who was a little girl – off the field, and then ensured that she was attended to off the field.
