On March 8th, Harmanpreet Kaur will become a year older and she will be celebrating her birthday by playing for the country in the final of the World Cup T20.
She is the first player in the history of cricket to lead a team in the final of an ICC event.
Talking about the final in the post-match presentation, Kaur said that it is good for cricket in India.
“We were hoping we’d get there because everybody’s feeling very positive about women’s cricket at the moment. We’ll get a lot of attention back home because everyone wants us to play good cricket and they’re expecting us to do well.
“We will try to give our best. If we win, definitely we’ll get a lot of attention and a lot of love from back home. Hopefully, like we got in the 2017 World Cup Final, we’ll get a very good day for women’s cricket,” Harmanpreet Kaur concluded.
