Harmanpreet Kaur doffed her hat to the Women’s Big Bash League was an eye-opener with respect to health and training performance levels. July 31, 2016 was the red-letter day for Indian Women’s cricket, when Harmanpreet became the first Indian to sign up for the T20 League. India’s T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur thanked that first season with Sydney Thunder for shaking her out of the comfort zone she had been so used to with the national team. “It’s made a lot of difference. I can tell that there’s a big change in my thought right now and what it was before,” Harmanpreet told the leading sports website.
