Question- How do you feel when someone discusses these achievements of yours while introducing you?

Question- There is a lot of discussion about India-Pakistan match in men’s cricket. What kind of talks happen between girls when it comes to Indo-Pak match and that too especially World Cup match?
Answer- There is a lot of hype outside. But matches are for peace. These are common things. Not that the match against India is any different. It seems unfair to give too much importance to any one match. Because you need to value every match to win the tournament. Yes, it is for sure that with India one is bound to be a little more special.
Question- What did you think when you used to watch Indo-Pak matches in your childhood? Which matches do you still have the most memories about?
Answer- When I was growing up, my thinking was also like that of the nation (to win against India at all costs) but when it came to the field of play, the thinking came to a standstill. Realized that this is just a game (not war). There is a bit too much heat for matches outside the field. I don’t remember much about the old men’s competition, but in the women’s competition, we had memorable matches in the Asia Cup.
Question- Any Indian player who has been your hero. A sportsperson, male or female, who has impressed you. Have played the role of ideal for you.
Answer- Mithali Raj.. Undoubtedly the way she has served cricket. Because those who are old players have brought cricket forward. Old great players like Mithali have played a big role in the condition cricket is in today. If we talk about men, it is obvious that Virat Kohli. The way he has shaped himself as a cricketer and then as a great personality.
Question- The challenges of India and Pakistan are almost the same for girls. Your mother encouraged you a lot, your brothers used to play with you. All these things have strengthened you to reach here.
Answer- I come from the tribal area where you get the least support. But if your family members are with you then I think you do not need much help from anyone else. When your family is together in cricket then you do not face much problem.
Question- Now women’s World Cup is also being discussed with such a loud noise. Did you ever think that these games would also start getting so much importance? She will start getting the gifts she probably really deserved.
Answer- It is a matter of great happiness. This should have happened very soon. It is late, but better late than never, it will be applicable here. The way men’s cricket is progressing, I hope something similar happens with our game now.
