Captain, Coach, Chef, Motivational Speaker and a Fighter ft. Mamatha Maben
She made her India debut at the age of 22, however, little did she know that it would be a roller coaster ride ahead. Featuring in the World Cup in her very first year, she was dropped immediately after the mega event, only to make a strong comeback after eight and a half years. With the figures of 6 for 10, she holds the record of being the oldest ever female cricketer to take a maiden five-wicket haul in an ODI (at the age of 33 years and 162 days) which is also the best bowling figure for an India woman in the 50-over format. After calling it quits, this Karnataka player entered into coaching and is known to have trained the national sides of China and Bangladesh.
We are talking about Mamatha Maben, who graced the Female Cricket feature The Pioneers.
