Indian cricketers have been grabbing the limelight over the last few weeks in England. While Virat Kohli is an inevitable presence in the back pages, the likes of Kuldeep Yadav and the Indian pace unit have provided fodder ahead of the much-anticipated five-Test series.

Meanwhile, Indian women's cricket superstars are also making headlines in the Old Blighty with their performances in the ongoing third edition of Kia Super League women's T20 tournament.

Making her Super League debut on in London on Tuesday, July 31, India's T20I captain showcased why she is one of the most dangerous T20 players going around.

The Lancashire Thunder all-rounder smashed a match-winning 21-ball 34 in chase of 149 against Surrey Stars.

Harmanpreet played the finisher's role to perfection when the team had needed 10 runs off the last four balls.

The 29-year-old big-hitter took a double off the third ball of the final over before hitting Alexandra Marsha for a boundary in the next ball.

With four runs needed off the last two balls, Harmanpreet smashed one out of the park and helped her team seal the thriller. Her 34-run knock included three boundaries and a six.

Notably, Harmanpreet became only the second Indian cricketer after opener Smriti Mandhana to bag a Super League contract.

The fearless all-rounder had become the first Indian player to sign for Big Bash League in 2016. Her success in Australia's domestic T20 league and subsequent ruthless showings in World Cup 2017 has certainly made her one of the most sought-after cricketers in franchise-based leagues.

Meanwhile, Mandhana is sitting right on top of the batting charts with 180 runs from four matches at a staggering average of 90.

The elegant left-hander smashed the joint-fastest fifty in women's T20 cricket (18 balls) for defending champions Western Storm in Taunton against Loughborough Lightning on July 29.

Her blistering knock had five boundaries and four sixes as she was heaped with praises, including one from her idol Kumar Sangakkara.

Mandhana helped the Storm register their third win of the season and top the six-team points table with an unbeaten 43 off just 27 balls against Southern Vipers in Arundel on July 31.
