With the sporting activities taking a backseat in the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ace Indian women cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur is spending a lot of time on social media. A look at Harmanpreet’s Instagram profile will tell you that she is taking this break to spend some quality time with her dog Fury. On Tuesday, too, India’s T20 skipper posted a cute snap with her dog on the photo-sharing application with a sweet caption.
Here is what Harman posted:
Meanwhile, women in blue are set to return to action as they travel to the United Kingdom next month for an all-format tour.
