India have produced many quality batters over the years. And when you see left-handed batter cuts, pulls and drives, the scene becomes more beautiful. Among all left-handed batters, Smriti Mandhana is the one who has been entertaining the world for the last few years. While she made her debut in 2013, she came in the limelight with her swashbuckling knock against England in the 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup.
However, she recently took to Instagram and shared how she started her cricketing journey. Although it was a post for Sunsilk, her journey will inspire many.
She posted, “It all began with me watching my brother play cricket. One day I decided to pick up the bat as well and started playing. At an early age of 9, I got through the Maharashtra U-15 team and since then I decided to take this up as a sport professionally. Thankfully, I have immense support from my family, who have helped me get to where I am today. Read more about my journey from the challenges I overcame to what kept me going, over on @sunsilkindia’s platform #SunsilkGirlGiri.”
Recently Smriti Mandhana led the Trailblazers to their maiden Women’s T20 Challenge trophy. In the final, Trailblazers successfully restricted Supernovas within a below-par while defending a total of 118 on the back of a brilliant bowling show and beat the two-time champions Supernovas by 16 runs as well.
The game was a low-scoring clash owing to a slow surface and only Trailblazers captain Smriti Mandhana (68 off 49) could manage to score a fifty. Apart from her, both the side struggled to open their arms. Jemimah too failed to leave her mark in the tournament.
Meanwhile, Mandhana’s fan following and popularity are known to all, which earned her several associations with the brands as well. Equitas Small Finance Bank appointed India’s swashbuckling opener as the brand ambassador where she will be featured in promoting their new product that aimed at women named Eva. ‘Eva’ is a savings account which tries to look after the well-being of Indian women including Health, Wealth and Prosperity.
While speaking about this, Smriti Mandhana said, “I am really glad to be an instrumental part of Equitas Small Finance Bank’s motive of promoting financial empowerment to all sections of society. It is a great privilege to be associated with the brand’s positioning as a socially responsible bank.”
“Their special efforts in encouraging women to save & become self-reliant is something that intrigued my deep interest. Looking forward to create a ripple effect with Equitas in stressing the importance of Growth & Prosperity,” Smriti Mandhana further added.
