While Harmanpreet went for Rs 1.8 crore, Sciver went on to become the joint highest overseas player alongside Australia all-rounder Ashleigh Gardner as she was paid Rs 3.2 crore. Along with Harmanpreet, two other India internationals – Pooja Vastrakar and Yastika Bhatia – also attracted substantial price tags.
“I feel great, I have always seen Mumbai Indians doing well in the IPL, and now I also have the opportunity to be part of the team”, Harmanpreet told Sports 18.
“I think it’s a gamechanger for all of us because we are going to experience this pressure [for] the first time. I’m very excited and at the same time, this will entirely change women’s cricket not only in India [but] even in world cricket. We all are coming to Mumbai and I hope we’ll get a lot of support.
