Kaur, Helmot in WBBL|07 Team of the Season

22 November 2021

Harmanpreet Kaur has been prolific in her first season at the Renegades.

Star all-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur has been named in the Weber WBBL|07 Team of the Season.

The 32-year-old has been prolific in her first season with the Melbourne Renegades.

Kaur, India's T20I captain, is the Renegades' leading run scorer and wicket-taker.

She has plundered 399 runs from 11 innings batting at number four - at an average of 66.5 - and struck 18 sixes, more than any other player in the competition.

With the ball, Kaur has claimed 15 wickets at an average of 20.4.

Kaur has been one factor in the Renegades' rise to second on the ladder, after finishing second-last in WBBL|06.

First-year WBBL head coach Simon Helmot has also made a significant impact to be named the Coach of the Team of the Season.

The Renegades doubled their win count in WBBL|07 - from four wins to eight wins - to record their highest-ever regular season finish and progress through to 'The Challenger'.

It continues Helmot's success as a coach this year, after guiding St Kitts and Nevis to the 2021 Caribbean Premier League title.

“The Weber WBBL|07 Team of the Season is a side that would be extremely competitive in any T20 match across the world," Cricket Australia's Head of Performance - Women's Cricket, Shawn Flegler, said.

“This team features a powerful batting line up, fearsome fast bowling and skilful spinners, not to mention two world-class all-rounders from overseas in Sophie Devine and Harmanpreet Kaur.

“We congratulate all players on their success throughout the season which has earned them selection in this merit team and wish all who are taking place in the Finals series the best of luck.”
