Meet Harmanpreet Kaur- The first Indian Woman to smash a World T20 century

In a society that is obsessed with men’s achievements, women’s glories are overlooked quite often. One should know the fact that women are venturing almost into every field and they are willing to take the chances when an opportunity knocks the door.

Women have always pushed themselves beyond boundaries to touch the pinnacle of success. They are not the kind who often go into a shell, usually cursing their fate or making lame excuses for their failures owing to a male-dominated atmosphere. They are the ones who have the willingness to succeed even in tough times.

Harmanpreet Kaur has been one of the phenomenal parts of Indian women cricket history. She is a potential all-rounder by trait. She deserves a certificate of excellence for her fruitful contributions that have quite often fetched good end results. She has been a practitioner in playing a wide range of shots whose exemplary appetite for scoring runs is just awesome.

Recently, she became the first Indian woman to score a T20I century, the first Asian to do so. She achieved the milestone in just 49 balls including 8 towering sixes and a flurry of 7 fours. Not only did she add runs to the scoreboard but also helped the team to a 34-run win over New Zealand in the ICC Women’s World T20I opener.

Even after giving absolutely everything, she didn’t hit the headlines of the first page like how Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma steal the spotlight. Please don’t wait for the media. Keep on sharing Harmanpreet Kaur’s achievements and show your full support.

Powered by a good batting and bowling side, nurtured by the skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, India has by far been the fierce force in the iconic ICC World T20 tourney. On Thursday, women’s team beat Ireland by 52 runs to reach World T20 semi-finals for the first time in eight years. It’s a massive achievement!

“Happy to qualify into the semis. But a lot of areas to improve. It’s a short format, so sometimes when your main bowler doesn’t bowl according to plan, so you need other bowlers to bowl. That’s why Jemmy and I bowled today,” Harmanpreet said at the post-match presentation.
