:cricket_bat_and_ball: Who said Cricket was a gentleman’s game? Atleast Anjum Chopra didn’t believe so and made herself the foremost name in Women’s Cricket.

:sparkles: Former captain of the Indian Women’s cricket team, Anjum Chopra made her debut in ODI at an early age of 17 in 1995 against New Zealand at Christchurch. A right arm medium pace bowler, a left-handed batswoman, Anjum made her debut as an all-rounder, opening the bowling in her first ODI and batting at No 10.

:trophy: With a career spanning over 17 years, Anjum has scaled great heights having played 6 World Cups, including 4 ODI World Cup and 2 T20 World Cup. She became the first woman player to appear in 100 ODIs for India. She holds the distinction of the most successful Indian Test skipper.

:medal_sports: Anjum is a Padma Shri recipient (2014) and an Arjuna Award winner (2007).

:raised_hands: Carving out a niche in the male-dominated sport in the country, Anjum has begun to be recognized as the face of women’s cricket in India as a player, captain, cricket analyst, and sportscaster.
