On a different pitch: Harmanpreet Kaur raises mercury level at Mysore Fashion Week -- WATCH

It seems Harmanpreet Kaur and other cricketers are finally being recognised and are getting their due, which will inspire more women to take up the sport

Harmanpreet Kaur, who is the current Vice-Captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, proved to be India’s star in the semi-final of the recently concluded Women’s World Cup.

The Indian women’s cricket team ranked 7th before the tournament and after making it to the finals against hosts England they are now ranked 4th. But, now it seems the Moga girl is taking a break from cricket and is looking for other opportunities. She was recently spotted on a different kind of pitch, walking the ramp at the Mysore Fashion Week.

Harmanpreet Kaur debuted on the ramp for designer Archana Kochhar at the on September 17. Clad in an elegant blue lehenga, Kaur looked cautious while on the stage but did not let go of her humble smile as the jam-packed venue cheered the cricketer.

Talking about her first-time experience at a fashion week, Kaur told IANS:

I was very nervous because it’s my first and I wanted to try something new and different as well, Aso why not try the ramp.

The video of her walking the ramp was posted by Archana Kochhar. It was captioned as, “Look who walked for me at Mysore fashion week. @imharmanpreet_kaur, vice-captain of Women’s Indian Cricket Team.”

The evening also had designers Roshan, Reshma Kunhi, Vijaya Lakshmi and Shravan Kumar.
