Harmanpreet Kaur: The 'Game-Changer' of Indian Women's cricket

Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami had been, for a very long time ruling the Indian cricket industry with their stunning performances and their sublime skills. It was they who maintained the audience's interest in Women’s cricket and constantly turned the eyeballs of each and every individual throughout their tenure. The Indian Women’s cricket team missed their presence and the country missed the time when these two brave ladies made us win each time. With the debut of Harmanpreet Kaur, India has crossed a milestone yet again. Let’s look at her captainship and know more about her here: 
 

Harmanpreet Kaur, a young personality from Moga, Punjab grew up with dreams in her eyes of becoming a famous cricket player one day.
