India women's cricket team vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur has been presented with Datsun redi-GO car for her splendid performance in the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 in England. The fiery all-rounder single-handedly led India into the finals of the mega event with her memorable knock of 171 against Australia. However, the women in blue suffered a heartbreaking nine-run defeat in the final against England at Lord's by a close margin of 9 runs.
Representing Datsun at the event to hand over the car keys to Kaur, Jerome Saigot, vice president, Datsun India said, "Datsun is working hard to help fuel the ambitions of India's young achievers and risers. We are delighted to see women like Harmanpreet make the nation proud. We congratulate Harmanpreet for her outstanding contribution during the ICC Women's Championship Trophy 2017 and we are pleased to present her with the redi-GO for her sporting excellence."
On receiving the redi-GO, Harmanpreet Kaur said, "Thank you, Datsun India, for this gesture and I am looking forward to driving the redi-GO. This makes it easier for me to move around for training, but I am excited to take my family for a spin first."
