Amita Sharma is born in 6 May 1993 on kothamangalamShe may be small, but Amita Sharma’s bowling is perfectly with a beautiful action, she can swing the ball both ways. She first played for India in 2002, and soon established herself as an integral member of the side, and now spearheads the bowling attack. Polished performances in the 2005 World Cup in South Africa – she took 13 wickets – helped her side into the final, where they faced the formidable Australia who were just too good for them. Sharma got her best ODI figures in the Quadrangular tournament in Chennai in February 2007 when she took 4 for 16 and led India to an eight-wicket victory against England. She plays her domestic cricket for Northern Railway.
India had batted laboriously in the first innings. The pitch was slow. It didn’t seem too much of an ask, until India lost three of the top four for ducks. At 74-6, India seemed to have gifted England a series lead. Then all-rounders Amita Sharma and Rumeli Dhar banished all such thoughts with fighting half- centuries. Along with Jhulan Goswami, who had scored 69 in the first innings after a surprise promotion to bat at no. 3, India’s pace trio would combine to cause England much grief with both ball and bat. Amita Sharma will lead the three squads for the Women’s Challenger Trophy to be played in Ahmedabad from January 2 to 5. The teams have been renamed India Red, India Blue and India Green, keeping in sync with the annual men’s tournament.Goswami (India Green) and Sharma (India Red) had captained teams in the previous edition. Rumeli Dhar, who captained India A last year, makes way for Malhotra, who is now in charge of India Blue. The Indian players have not played as a unit since the World Twenty20 in June. Amita Sharma added a crucial 40 runs for the seventh wicket to steady the innings. Sharma, who was unbeaten on 47, also added some handy runs with No. 9 Jhulan Goswami as India reached 188 for 9 off their 50 overs. West Indies’ chase started poorly as they lost Stafanie Taylor in the third over with just two runs on the board. Shanel Daley and Deandra Dottin added 43 runs for the 5th wicket to take West Indies past 100 and it looked like they were on track for victory.
