Bengal’s Titas Sadhu has been picked up by Delhi Capitals in the Women’s Premier League. Delhi bought her for Rs 25 lakh in Monday’s auction. Titas was busy practicing while the auction was taking place in Mumbai. She and her coach Priyankar Banerjee are excited to get a chance in the Delhi team. Titas said she had set a goal for herself.
Titas was the player of the match in the final of the recently concluded U-19 World Cup. Titus, who took 2 wickets in 4 overs in the final, feels that the doors of the national team will open only if she can prove himself in the IPL. Titas said,
“I was excited. I have been watching IPL since childhood. It feels good to get a chance in a big team. I was worried about getting a team or not. Feel relieved to have the opportunity. This time you have to practice to play well. I don’t know if I will get a chance in the first eleven. Many foreign cricketers are also in the team. But if I get a chance, I will give my best.”
Coach optimistic about Titas Sadhu
Titas’ coach Priyankar Banerjee said,
“Titas has a very good opportunity. She will come across with some good players. She will know their mentality. Playing with international players adds to the experience. It’s not important how much money she gets, it’s important to get a chance to play.”
Once upon a time, Titas used to play in the name of boys. In an interview she once said,
“I was not allowed to play district level club cricket because I am a girl. So I played in the name of a man. I have succeeded. Participated in many competitions for boys team at U-15 level. Successful there too. Now I understand how much those competitions have helped me to reach this height.”
