Maiden Innings An Inspiring Account of How Indian Women Scripted Cricketing History

Author Name: Kapil Pathare | Format: Paperback | Genre : Sports & Games | Other Details

Women’s Cricket has come a long way, with many people still unaware of its progress. Primarily male-dominated in India, the game has often been associated with names like Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and off-late, the swashbuckling Virat Kohli. Amidst all this, the mantle of taking Indian women’s cricket forward has been quietly shouldered by a very committed team of young women who made it big on the international cricket scene by making it to the finals of the Women’s Cricket World Cup in 2017. The gusto with which the India eves brought India to the anvil victory, once again only reconfirms the growing, maturing capabilities of Indian women in an erstwhile male-dominated sport. Each woman in the team has a specific character that appears louder in their performance than in their personality while giving their best for the country. Most of them come from humble, poor backgrounds but with far much richer dreams to make their country proud. Their effort should not be looked upon merely as a performance but should be seen in the light of an excruciating struggle from a tender age to the highest level of the game. The book emphasizes displaying these strong characters as great role models for women in other sports, industries and even the least privileged section of society to follow and improve their lives.
