Harmanpreet Kaur, India’s women’s T20 captain, made a bright start to her Big Bash League career even though her team Sydney Thunder lost to Melbourne Stars.

Defending champions Sydney Thunder may have lost Saturday’s opening game of the Women’s Big Bash League season to Melbourne Stars, but their latest recruit sure didn’t disappoint.

Harmanpreet Kaur, India T20 captain, made a bright start to her Big Bash League career with a 28-ball 47 at the North Sydney Oval ground. Harmanpreet’s cameo couldn’t quite take Thunder over the line as the hosts were restricted to 141 for 4 in reply to Melbourne’s 147 for 8.

Commentator and Australia legend Adam Gilchrist called the sixer “as good a cricket shot as you will ever see.”

Harmanpreet’s outing completed a fabulous Saturday for India women cricketers, who finally got their own Twitter handle. Their matches, including the international ties, were previously tweeted out by the BCCI domestic handle.

Harmanpreet Kaur is arriving on a high, having led the Indian team to their sixth Asia Cup title by defeating Pakistan in the final at Bangkok.

In July 2016, Harmanpreet Kaur created history as she became the first Indian player to be signed up for the Big Bash League. She also enjoyed a good run in the Twenty20 World Cup, in which she scored 89 runs and took seven wickets in four matches. She also played a vital part in India securing their first-ever series win against Australia in a Twenty20 International series
