“Many gifted gamers at the moment, due to lack of cash, lack of monetary stability by means of this recreation, they needed to shift to completely different fields. After turning 23-24, dad and mom will ask what’s subsequent? So, being a girls cricketer what are you able to inform dad and mom? I do not earn cash, I’m taking part in for ardour? Nobody will purchase it.
“Because of that reason, a lot of talented people, they had to let go of their profession (cricket). So, at that time if BCCI was there, they would have added an extended career and we would have more pool of players in women’s cricket.” The 37-year-old, broadly thought to be the best feminine cricketer the nation has produced, stated that as a baby she needed to develop into an IAS officer. “Honestly cricket happened to me.
