Harmanpreet said she is happy to be a part of the league after following it from long as a viewer. “I am so pleased to sign for Lancashire Thunder ahead of the 2018 Kia Super League. I have followed the KSL for a while and I can’t wait to finally play in the competition, especially at a stadium like Emirates Old Trafford.
“I have fond memories of playing in England following last summer’s ICC Women’s World Cup, during which I scored my highest ever international score," she said. “I’m really looking forward to working with new Head Coach Alex Blackwell and I can’t wait to join up with the squad in the next few weeks," Kaur added.
Lancashire Thunder Head Coach, Alex Blackwell, added, “I am thrilled to be able to welcome Harmanpreet to Emirates Old Trafford.
“She is somebody who I have played against on the international stage, and also played within the Women’s Big Bash League. She is vastly experienced and she will be a great addition to our squad for what will be her first spell in the KSL.”
Harmanpreet is a T20 star and Lancashire will hope that she shines for them in the upcoming tournament.
