When you see the cricket clubs there were a lot of young kids and girls who started to get trained and play in the earlier days, only less get a chance like under-19 and others.


Nowadays, the girls get a chance at the age of above 9 playing for their school teams, zonal teams belonging to their age category. In earlier stages players are good at the sports some are attracted towards the game. When you take at some of the players they really won’t have any idea or wanted to become a cricketer they had their interest in some other sports and art form it depends on their talent and skills. some wanted to become cricketers and some may become unexpected like footballer Ganguly become a Legendary cricket player for team India.
