Her father Ivan Rodrigues in an interview with Hindustan Times “At the age of four, she started playing season cricket. Around the age of two, she probably used to play with plastic balls and bats, never the dolls. It is a dream for every parent who is sportspersons, to see their children play for India. When it’s cricket, I’m just their coach, not a father. I’m very strict at that and they also know it. When she was small she got hammering also, especially when her feet were not moving.
So how did cricket overcome hockey? Ivan says it hasn’t. “If you ask her if she wants to play hockey, she’ll say she wants to play hockey. My dream was that my children should play for India whether it’s in cricket or hockey. Now even if she gets to play both the games for her country, she’s ready to play both the games for her country,” he added. “She hasn’t given up on hockey. When she gets tired she takes up a stick and plays hockey. That’s her relaxation.” Ivan concluded. BuzzWhoop feels she is the next big thing in Indian cricket team going ahead.
