New Delhi. Women’s T20 World Cup is going to happen after 3 years. This tournament is special for India. Because just before this, India’s Under-19 team has created history under the leadership of Shefali Verma. India’s women’s under-19 cricket team recently won the World Cup in South Africa. This is the first time that India’s women’s team has won a World Cup. This is the reason that this time the expectations from the senior team of the country have also increased. Good performance is expected from Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana. There is one more player, who knows how to turn the tide on the strength of his game. This is the reason why there are huge expectations from him in the World Cup. The name of this player is Harleen Deol.

Harleen Deol had played an important inning of 46 runs in the final of the tri-series against South Africa a day earlier. She could not make the team win. But, his performance definitely raised hopes about the T20 World Cup. Very few people would probably know that Harleen’s first love was not cricket but football. She used to play football with boys at the age of 4. She was selected as the best football player in Yadvindra Public School, Mohali for 4 years. Then what happened that while playing football with the boys, Harry became Harleen of Team India. Let’s know. Before knowing this, let us tell a little about his family.

Harleen’s family has nothing to do with sports
Please tell that Harleen Deol’s family had no connection with sports far and wide. His father BS Deol is Karabori while mother Charanjit Kaur is an employee of the Punjab government. His family is originally from Patiala, Punjab. But Harleen came to Himachal Pradesh for cricket and plays from here.

Harry used to play football with the boys as a child.
Harleen’s mother Charanjit Kaur told in an interview that no one in the family was interested in sports. But, Harleen was associated with sports since childhood. Harleen’s childhood name is Harry and he started playing football at an early age. She used to play football with the boys. However, cricket is also played in the school. Gradually, Harry’s interest in this game grew and once he started playing cricket with the boys, it was not known when football was left behind. Harleen was also involved in the school’s cricket team.

Made debut for India in 2019
Harleen first participated in the National Cricket Tournament at the junior level at the age of 8-9 years. After this he was selected in the Punjab team. But she later joined the Girls Cricket Academy of Himachal Pradesh to improve her game. That day and today’s day is with him from this academy. After this, he confirmed a place in age group cricket, then under-19 and later in the senior team. She was selected in the Indian women’s cricket team for the first time in February 2019. He made his ODI debut against England and only a month later made his T20 debut against England.
