Maiden Rising STAR

Middlesex County Youth Player of Year

Name:  Vani, aged 17, been playing for 8 years! 

Cricket Story:   This year I have created the first ever cricket team at my school which is all girls, so I really want to promote cricket among girls. All girls should feel comfortable when playing cricket without being judged, as I can use my experience playing with boys knowing how it feels.
Why do you love Maiden and wanted to be an ambassador?  I’ve grown up playing boys and men’s cricket until county cricket, and since then I’ve created a girls' team and school it's been a vital part in forming a now established girls set up at my old club, so I think I am perfect for engaging young developing girls into the sport. I am Indian Asian, which is good for diversity.
