Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh has offered star woman cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur the DSP's position in Punjab Police.
Harmanpreet played a crucial role in India reaching the final of the ICC World Cup in England. Her hurricane knock of 171 against Australia in the semifinals was the highlight of her contribution.
Having already announced a cash prize of Rs. 5 lakh for her, the CM offered her a job after speaking to her father Harmandar Singh in Moga. Harmanpreet had reportedly wanted to join the Punjab Police some years ago but was denied by the force. He also promised to review the State's sports policy to provide government jobs to young sportspersons like Harmanpreet.
Shimla: India's international woman cricketer Sushma Verma was on Tuesday offered the job of a DSP in Himachal Police by the state government for her sporting achievements.
Sushma Verma has brought laurels to the hill state and to its people by excelling in international cricket, an official statement quoting Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said here. A wicketkeeper-batswoman, Sushma was a member of the Indian team that played the 2017 ICC Women's World Cup final against winners England.
Shimla-born Sushma, the first woman cricketer from the hill state to represent India in international cricket, is a success story of Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association's residential academy in Dharamsala, around 250 km from the state capital.
The right-hand batswoman made her debut in Indian cricket team in the 2014 England tour.
