Harmanpreet ruled out of Women’s Super League

Women's Cricket

India women allrounder Harmanpreet Kaur has had to withdraw from the upcoming Women’s Super League in England because of a shoulder injury.

Harmanpreet was one of the most exciting batters at the tournament, finishing as her side’s second highest run-scorer, as India lost in the final to hosts England at Lord’s.

The right-hander played arguably the best innings of the World cup when she smashed an unbeaten 171 against Australia in the semi-final to guide her team to the showpiece match.

The 28-year-old would have represented Surrey Stars in the Super League but was ruled out after she was advised to rest and then rehabilitate her shoulder which was severely hurt at the global event.

Harmanpreet was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times: “I was in bad shape in the later stages of the World Cup but the physios got me going.

“It would have been great to be a part of Kia League. I had a successful stint with Sydney Thunder in Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) which lifted my game and confidence.

“I will convey my unavailability to the franchise.”
