The upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup is expected to be a fascinating one.. Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur would be keen to make the most of the ongoing Tri-Series in South Africa as this is the first time that a T20 WC is held in South Africa where we can expect competitive wickets.
The Women in Blue would be keen to win their maiden T20 WC after the disappointment of the 2020 T20 WC final defeat. All eyes would be on Shafali Verma who led the U-19 Women’s Team to a maiden triumph against all odds as the batter will have to bat responsibly.

Harmanpreet Kaur was having an interaction with ICC and was asked about the tourney. “I am sure this year’s tournament in South Africa will be ultra-competitive. Though Australia go into the tournament as favorites, there is very little separating other teams, promising close matches and high-class performances.We are hungry for that evasive title as we go to South Africa with high hopes and the confidence of having an outfit that can beat any team on its day,” said Harmanpreet Kaur.
Harmanpreet Kaur on recent Australia T20I Series
Harmanpreet Kaur was asked about the Australia T20I Series & about the Women’s Premier League. “A home series against Australia in December further gave us the opportunity to test ourselves and try our combinations against a top side. Though we lost the series 4-1, there were enough thrills in the series for the thousands who thronged the stadiums. The attendance in those matches also reflected the growing attention the women’s game has been able to attract in recent times.” said Harmanpreet Kaur.
“The support for women’s cricket by the International Cricket Council and the Board of Control for Cricket in India has been amazing over the years and the impending Women’s IPL is surely going to take the game to the next level in India. The appetite for women’s cricket has been growing rapidly and the future is very bright in all aspects.” she added.
