Special Rap Tribute For Harmanpreet Kaur From Teammates Features 'Thor, Shaktimaan'
Harmanpreet Kaur is the only Indian to make 100 T20I appearances, ahead of the likes of MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma, who have played 98 T20Is each
Indian cricketer Jemimah Rodrigues tweeted a video of her and teammate Harleen Deol performing a special rap song that they penned for T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur. The song was a tribute to Harmanpreet Kaur after she received her 100th T20I cap. "Congratulations on your 100th T20i cap," Jemimah captioned her video on Twitter. "Here's a small tribute for you from Big Harry ft. Lil' J," she added. The two looked the part in the video as well, with Jemimah Rodrigues wearing a white baggy sweatshirt, a pair of shades and a glove on one hand and Harleen Deol wearing a hoodie over her shoulders with the hood up.
Harleen Deol starts off the rap in Hindi saying "Her name is followed by 'Kaur', people call her Thor." Jemimah chimes in with the refrain of "Kaur, Kaur" as Harleen resumes the rap.
"She is the pride of Punjabis, this girl is Shaktimaan," Harleen continues, referring to the popular Indian superhero.

She became the only Indian to make 100 appearances for the country in the shortest format of the game, ahead of the likes of MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma, who have played 98 T20Is each.
