Blockbuster clash upon us

The inaugural edition of the Women's Premier League (WPL), commences from Saturday, with a mega clash between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Giants. Ahead of the opening contest, Harmanpreet stated that when she made her international debut in 2009, senior players like Anjum Chopra and Jhulan Goswami made her comfortable in the new environment.

What Harmanpreet said?

"As a young kid, it is very difficult to talk to a senior. So my approach is always to go to them and talk to the youngsters. When I entered the team, Jhulu di (Jhulan Goswami) and Anjum di (Anjum Chopra) made me feel very comfortable and I'm trying to follow the same thing here," Harmanpreet said at the pre-game presser.

Talking about the youngsters in the team, Kaur said:

"We have Sonam Yadav in our team who did really well in the U19 World Cup. I was talking to her yesterday and trying to understand her. She asked me what I thought of her bowling and a few other questions. I was very impressed by Dhara Gujjar's approach, the way she was running between the wickets," she added.

Mumbai Indians have acquired some of the best players in the world in the WPL auction. Harmanpreet Kaur was given the captaincy armband this week, and she'll be gunning to win the inaugural edition of the WPL.
