Indian women’s cricket sensation Smriti Mandhana lured a great deal of attention not just for her charm but after scoring 196 runs in just a couple of games in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup in England and Wales.
Shortly after her century against the West Indies, Mandhana’s coach Anant Tambvekar revealed that she drew inspiration from former Sri Lankan skipper Kumar Sangakkara. She has extensive concern over her batting style and often approaches Tambvekar to identify technical mistakes.
“Smriti was very lively since her childhood. But at the nets, she was extremely disciplined. She never used to leave the nets unless she had mastered a shot. Later on, she became a fan of Kumar Sangakkara. In the nets, she always tried to copy Sangakkara while batting. Sometimes I had scolded her for trying to copy the Sri Lankan great,” said Anant Tambvekar.
Apart from her batting, she has drawn plenty of attention for her charm in social media. Like Kumar Sangakkara, Mandhana is considered a well-disciplined professional on and off the field.
