India’s women’s team is gearing up for a full-fledged tour to England. Both Indian Women and England Women will feature in a lone Test match from June 16 to June 19 at the County Ground in Bristol. The Test will be followed by the two teams locking horns against each other in three One Day Internationals and as many T20 Internationals. 

The women’s team will travel to the United Kingdom (UK) on June 2 via a chartered flight. Ahead of the England tour, all the UK-bound players are currently serving a mandatory quarantine period in a five-star hotel in Mumbai in a bio-bubble made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

While completing her quarantine, India’s women T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur decided to host an interactive Question and Answer session on her official Instagram handle, where she answered a variety of questions related to her personal and professional life. 

During the interactive session, the fans asked some interesting questions to the skipper as they asked her to define some of the legends of the game in one word. When a fan requested Harmanpreet to define the captain of India’s Men team, Virat Kohli, in one word, the 32-year-old answered “energy”.

Harmanpreet Kaur terms Rohit Sharma “gifted”

Notably, Kohli is renowned for his aggressive and energetic personality on the cricket field. Further, the right-hander labelled former Indian captain MS Dhoni as “legend” while terming Rohit Sharma and her teammate Mithali Raj “gifted” and “experienced” respectively. 

Interestingly both Men’s and Women’s cricket teams will be traveling in the same chartered flight to for the England series. Notably, Mithali Raj will lead the Indian team in Test and ODIs, while Harmanpreet Kaur will handle the reins of the T20I side.

India Men’s cricket team, on the other hand, is traveling for a Test series against England, before which they will be facing New Zealand in the final of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship from June 18 to June 22 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. The WTC final will be followed by a five-match Test series between India and England, starting from August 4.
