Another great news from the WBBL is that Harmanpreet Kaur, signed with the Melbourne Renegades for the new campaign. She was last year’s WBBL player in the tournament.

Harmanpreet Kaur scored 406 runs and took 15 wickets last season.

“I’m excited to be coming back to the Renegades, I really enjoyed being part of the team environment last season and feel like that helped me produce some of my best cricket.”

“Personally, I just wanted to play my role for the team and it was pleasing to be able to do that.

“We supported each other as a team last year and were able to get some good results, but we still have plenty of room to improve.

“Hopefully, we can do that, make the finals again and put ourselves in a position to compete for the title.”

Kaur rejoins a squad captained by Sophie Molineux, who committed her future to the team in May by signing a two-year contract extension.

Renegades general manager James Rosengarten added: “Harmanpreet is one of the best players in the world, her record speaks for itself. 

“She was outstanding for us last season and was a match-winner on multiple occasions, having a prolific impact across the tournament with both bat and ball.

“As an experienced player, Harmanpreet’s leadership and calm approach under pressure was a huge asset for our team. She was a great fit both on and off the field and really bought into our team environment.”
