Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana Pulled Out Of Women’s Big Bash League
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has pulled out two of its women cricketers Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana from Women’s Big Bash League to join the training camp for the 2017 World cup qualification tournament. Kaur was the part of the Sydney Thunder whereas Smriti Mandhana was a part of Brisbane Heat Roster.
Indian team missed out on a direct qualification for the Women’s championship as BCCI called off the bilateral series against Pakistan, which saw Indian team losing crucial points and a direct place in Women Championship as well. They will now have to battle it out in the qualification round to qualify for the championship tournament. Both Kaur and Mandhana will be quite crucial for the team in the tournament.
Mandhana recently became the first ever Indian women cricketer to make it to the ICC’s Women’s team of the Year.
Along with Kaur and Mandhana, the South African board have also pulled out their players from the T20 league. Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp are the two players to be withdrawn from the league. In fact, both of them have already joined their national squad and played an ODI against Bangladesh women on January 12.
The final of the Women Big Bash League will be played on January 28.
