India T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s appearance in Women Big Bash League (WBBL) is set to end ahead of India tour of New Zealand. India and New Zealand are scheduled to play six limited-overs matches starting from January 24, which requires Indian players to return back in the country by January 12.
Kaur will miss Sydney Thunder’ final clash against Brisbane Heat and she will also be unavailable for the semi-finals of the WBBL if Thunder qualifies. Similarly, Melbourne Renegades will have to bid farewell to New Zealand pair Lea Tahuhu and Amy Satterthwaite, if their side advances to finals.
The International commitments will also hit the English players, who are required to return by January 17 as they have a mandatory camp later this month ahead of their tour of India in February. The fourth-placed Renegades will lose England star Danielle Wyatt if they progress, while the fifth-ranked Perth Scorchers will miss out wicketkeeper Amy Jones.
