Harmanpreet Kaur re-signed by Melbourne Renegades
Harmanpreet Kaur who scored the most runs for Melbourne Renegades bagged the Player of the Tournament award for the previous season. Notably, Harmanpreet Kaur will don the Renegades jersey for the second consecutive season in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) after re-signing for the franchise on Monday.
“I’m excited to be coming back to the Renegades,” Kaur said. “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,” she added.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Harmanpreet returning to our club this summer,” Melbourne Renegades General Manager, James Rosengarten, said. “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. After not being able to play games in Melbourne last season, we know our fans will be thrilled about the prospect of watching Harmanpreet in action in WBBL 08.”
