India T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur was the only India batter named in the recently held Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) 2021 Team of the Tournament. This came after her brilliant all-round performance for the Melbourne Renegades in the tournament.
Harmanpreet has been on top of her game, scoring 399 runs with three half-centuries to her name at a strike rate of 135.25 and an average of 66.5. Her top score was 81* which came against Sydney Thunder and hit 18 sixes thus far.
The 32-year-old has been brilliant in the power play and has snared 15 wickets. The Indian T20 skipper also boasts of the best figures of 3/22.
"Harmanpreet Kaur has been a dominant force with bat and ball for the Renegades, spearheading their rise back up the ladder after joining her new club," cricket.co.au said.
Harmanpreet was the only Indian picked in the Team of the tournament despite notable performances by her other countrymates, especially Smriti Mandhana, who became the first from the country to hit a century in the league with a record-equaling 114*.
The selection panel included cricket.com.au journalist Laura Jolly, former Australia players Lisa Sthalekar and Mel Jones, and Australia national selector Shawn Flegler.
Here is the WBBL Team of the Tournament:
Sophie Devine (C), Beth Mooney, Georgia Redmayne (WK), Harmanpreet Kaur, Grace Harris, Tahlia McGrath, Jess Jonassen, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Hannah Darlington, Tayla Vlaeminck, Darcie Brown
