India's star all-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur, who took India to 2017 ICC Women's World Cup final with her 171 run knock against Australia, is likely to miss the Kia Super League due to a shoulder injury she sustained during the ICC event earlier in July.

According to a report by Hindustan Times, Harmanpreet will not take part in Kia Super League, to be held in England from 10 August to 1 September, owing to a shoulder injury.

According to the report, an MRI scan has confirmed that India's vice-captain has a shoulder-tear. She has further been advised to take rest for a month.

A dejected Harmanpreet couldn't hide her disappointment when asked about the situation. In the report, she is quoted as saying, “I was in bad shape in the later stages of the World Cup but the physios got me going. It would have been great to be a part of Kia League. I had a successful stint with Sydney Thunder in Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) which lifted my game and confidence. I will convey my unavailability to the franchise.”

Had Harmanpreet taken part in Kia Super league, she would have become India's first player to take part in the league, having also been part of Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) last year.

“I was really looking forward to playing alongside England’s World Cup winning cricketers Natalie Sciver, Tammy Beaumont, Laura Marsh and Alex Hartley,” said Harmanpreet on her exit.

Harmanpreet was signed by Surrey Stars in May, before the start of the World Cup, in which India reached the finals, losing to England by 9 runs. The Kia Super League is a six-team tournament in a round-robin format, with the final to be played on 1 September in Hove.
