New Delhi: Indian cricket team captain Harmanpreet Kaur Women’s Premier League (WPL) continues to prove itself better. Harmanpreet, who is captaining Mumbai Indians, is doing something amazing in every match. The Indian star, who has done wonders with her bat in most of the matches, has now shown her fielding skills. In the match against UP Warriors, Harmanpreet’s bat could not do much, but the Mumbai captain gave a strong start to his team by taking a tremendous catch with just 3 fingers.
Harmanpreet’s Mumbai, which has already qualified for the playoffs by winning 5 consecutive matches in WPL, was up against UP on Saturday. For the first time in the tournament, Mumbai’s batting could not do wonders and UP dismissed it for just 127 runs. In such a situation, Mumbai needed to do wonders in bowling to win this match and bowlers also need good fielding support. Captain Kaur herself set an example by starting it.
