Women are changing the game everywhere and cricket is no exception. Take a look at some of the top players in the field here.
Sports betting is one of the most highly-anticipated categories of gambling games. This is because it offers a similar fun and exciting experience as the casino games like slots and Blackjack, only in the wagers. However, unlike casino games, you have to place the bets on real-time sports based on your prediction of the winner/ winning team. Nonetheless, it’s a game worth playing!
Even though there are several types of sports where betting can be done, Cricket has gained immense popularity amongst amateur and pro gamblers. The anticipation that the sports offer is paramount. Besides, you can bet on the winning team, the player who will make the maximum runs, a man of the match, and so on. Therefore, the options are endless, and also the level of fun.
As women’s Cricket is gaining popularity both in the real-life and gambling world, we have shed light on some of the top players from the world. Placing wagers against these cricketers will heighten the competitive level of the game and keep the anticipation high.
If you want to bet online on cricket, you must consider the player’s credibility and past performance records. Mithali Raj, the Indian team captain, is quite popular amongst sports gamblers. In her debut match, she scored 114 runs in ODI, and she was merely 16 years old. This set the bar relatively high for all other players around the world.
So far, she is holding the unbeatable run record of making 6000 runs in the 2017 ODI, surpassing England’s famous woman cricketer, Charlotte Edwards.
Katherine represented her county, Yorkshire, in under-15 and under-17 teams. However, she rose to fame after taking out 14 wickets in a two-day series match against Australia. Even though she suffered from many injuries, her fierce comeback in 2009 sparked hope in the English team.
Her uniqueness is her aggressive style of playing the game, which often takes her opponent’s batswoman by surprise. With her fast-paced bowling and strong batting hits, she has made several milestones in her career.
Sana Mir is one of the jewels of the Pakistan Cricket team, even though now she has taken a permanent break from the sport. She has played almost 226 international matches during her entire career and became the first Pakistan bowler to make a century on a wicket during the WODIs.
In 2018, she ranked top of Pakistan’s team with the highest bowling records apart from being cherished due to her contributions to the Asian Games in 2010 and 2014.
Holly Ferling is a right-handed, medium-paced bowler from the Australian International Women Cricket team. With her debut in 2013, she has set many records for other players by taking nine wickets at an average rate of 10.55 in the Women’s World Cup-2013 or making most catches in ODI matches.
She took a break from her career in 2016. There is no update about making a comeback as an international player.
Stafanie started as a cricketer when she was merely 10 years old. During her T20I debut, her team played against Ireland in 2008. She scored 90 runs out of 49 balls, setting a record as a new player.
In 2013, Taylor was the only cricketer who ranked number 1 among batting and bowling players globally. After two years, in 2015, she became the captain of the West Indies cricket team.
Being called as “Best wicketkeeper in the world” by Adam Gilchrist in 2018, Sarah Jane Taylor is one of the strongest pillars of the English Women’s Cricket team. However, her outstanding performance, wicket-keeping, and batting have helped her rise through the ranks and become a strong opponent.
Her world-record performance was against South Africa And India during World Cup 2017. In the semi-final and final matches, she played vital innings of 54 and 45, respectively. After playing for almost a decade, she retired from the sport in 2019.
After playing her first international match at 16, Ellyse Alexandra Perry is an all-rounder women cricketer. She is right-handed, and her performance has always been consistent on the path of improvement. In every match where she played, Perry set records, either through maximum runs, wickets, and more.
She has bagged the title of the youngest player ever to play in the Australian Women’s International Cricket team. In 2020, she was rewarded as the ICC Women Cricketer of the Year, thanks to outstanding on-field performance, team play, and excellent deliveries.
Laura Marsh made her debut in 2006 against India, during which she got injured but again hit the field with her off-spinning bowling skills. She was able to take six wickets at an average of approximately 11.33 during a game against Pakistan.
Therefore, Laura has played in all three formats and has scored multiple international half-centuries. As a result, England regained their place in the Ashes after winning a series in which they batted for five continuous hours and made a tie.
In the women’s ODI, Shashikala Siriwardene was rewarded as the third youngest female cricketer, along with her excellent scoring of 1000 runs and 100 wickets. Being an all-rounder player, she was even included in the bowling team. She became the 10th cricketer to have bowled the maximum with a score of 1653.
Jhulan Goswami is one of the fastest bowlers in the Indian cricket team. Her outstanding performance was seen during the World Cup. She is awarded the Arjuna Award and Padma Shri owing to her dedication to the cricket team.
With these fantastic contenders and players, the expectation level has been increased to a huge height. Therefore, people are placing wagers against these players in several women’s cricket matches in the gambling industry. All you have to do is find the best online sports betting platform, choose the game, and place a wager against your favourite cricket player, female.

Freelance or full-time, which is a better mode of work for you? Here are the pros and cons, from someone who has been-there-done-that.
For women who are restarting their careers after marriage, motherhood, or any other personal reasons, freelance work is an excellent avenue to consider. I think I’m qualified to make this statement because I’ve been there, done that.
When we had to shift from Chennai to Bangalore because of my personal situation, I was both excited and anxious; excited about the new pastures I was going to explore, and anxious that it should all work out well for us; for me, my husband, and our daughter (5 years old then).
Bangalore welcomed us with open arms and there has been no looking back since. I had just completed a corporate training course a month before moving to Bangalore, and was looking at new opportunities.
Most of us dislike being called aunty because of the problematic meanings attached to it. But isn't it time we accept growing old with grace?
Recently, during one of those deep, thoughtful conversations with my 3 y.o, I ended a sentence with “…like those aunty types.” I quickly clicked my tongue. I changed the topic and did everything in my hands to make her forget those last few words.
I sat down with a cup of coffee and drilled myself about how the phrase ‘aunty-type’ entered my lingo. I have been hearing this word ‘aunty’ a lot these days, because people are addressing me so.
Almost a year ago, I was traveling in a heavily-crowded bus and a college girl asked me “Aunty, can you please hold my bag?” It was the first time and I was first shocked and later offended. Then I thought about why I felt so.
