The cricket world was abuzz when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) appointed former Indian all-rounder Hrishikesh Kanitkar as the batting coach of the Indian Women’s National Team.

The appointment was much appreciated by the Indian cricketing fraternity, especially Harmanpreet Kaur, who had previously worked with him in the past.

The Indian women’s skipper took to Twitter to express her delight at the appointment and conveyed her best wishes for the former all-rounder.

She went on to say that it was great to work with someone who was ‘calm’ and composed, and also wished him all the best for this new assignment.

Kanitkar had previously coached India’s Under 19 team and was also the team’s batting coach during the 2017 World Cup. He played 54 ODIs and a single Test match for India and was known for his calm and composed demeanour.

It is this experience and calmness that makes Harmanpreet Kaur so happy to be working once again with the former Indian all-rounder.

Kanitkar is expected to join the team during the forthcoming series against England and South Africa. He will be looking to add value and make a difference with his experience and insight.

The development has undoubtedly lifted the morale of the team, who will be eager to build on their recent success and make deep inroads into the Test and ODI format of the game.

It is hoped that with the experienced guidance and support of Hrishikesh Kanitkar, the Indian women’s cricket team will go from strength to strength.

Harmanpreet Kaur looks forward to working with Hrishikesh Kanitkar once again

Harmanpreet Kaur, one of the fastest growing cricket stars of India, is happy to once again be reunited with her mentor Hrishikesh Kanitkar ahead of the Indian team’s tour of England.

Harmanpreet and Kanitkar have had a close relationship since the international cricketer’s debut as a part of the Indian squad. Kanitkar, who was formerly the head coach of India’s senior women’s cricket team, has repeatedly praised Harmanpreet for her enthusiasm and determination.

Kanitkar’s leadership style is known to be calm and encouraging. He has previously noted that Harmanpreet has an excellent ability of consistently learning and putting in the effort to improve her performance.

Harmanpreet may be looking forward to some guidance from her mentor before taking on England in the tour, which is set to begin in June. Here’s what she has to say about reuniting with Kanitkar:

“Working with Hrishikesh once again is a real blessing for me. I always trust his judgement and advice, as he always gives out the best bits that I have to improve upon. His enthusiasm and spirit combined with my energy makes us make a great team!”

Harmanpreet’s Goals on the Field

It is no secret that Harmanpreet is an ambitious cricketer. As someone who started her cricketing career in 2014, she has since then made a name for herself in the cricketing world. In 2019, she became the first Indian women’s player to be named Wisden Cricketer of the Year.

Harmanpreet is well aware of the spectacular tour England Women’s team had in India. The English players came here in February this year and won all their three-match ODI series against the hosts. Despite the pressure on the team, Harmanpreet believes that it can turn the tables if it follows certain steps.

“We have had a couple of defeats back to back but this tour is an opportunity for us to show our strengths and put up a fight. We have practiced a lot and Hrishikesh’s mentorship will definitely be invaluable in this tour”, said the cricketer.

The importance of Hrishikesh Kanitkar

Harmanpreet Kaur and Hrishikesh Kanitkar have some common traits – both their positive mental attitude, their never-give-up approach, and their desire to excel.

Under his direction, Harmanpreet is expected to cultivate her full potential as a batswoman and a fielder. She also looks up to Kanitkar for his valuable tips on how to bat under pressure, select the right shots, and maintain focus in the middle.

Harmanpreet believes that there is so much to learn from her mentor’s deep knowledge of the game, his presence of mind, and his years of experience, which makes her excited for the upcoming tour.

Harmanpreet’s motivation for the upcoming tour

Harmanpreet is motivated to give her best performances for India in the upcoming tour. She has a strong belief that she and her team will be able to turn it around and put up a great fight in the tour.

“The few months leading up to this tour have been really tough, but I am confident and motivated to play to the best of my abilities. I am doing everything necessary to be at my best, both physically and mentally,” , said Harmanpreet.

Harmanpreet and her team have been preparing hard for the tour. The players have been following a strict fitness regime and a practice regimen.

With the guidance of Hrishikesh, the team is confident and motivated to perform to the best of its potential in the upcoming tour and make India proud.
