She proves that, gone are the days when women were confined to certain petty
stereotypes. She has break through all these filthy holding back chains of the society and is
all set to inspire young women in border of her country and beyond. She is an extremely
extravagant example of perfection. She proves “Hamari chhori kisi chhore se kam nai.” She’s been excelling in her field like a pro. She is the lady hero with taking in her name the renowned and prestigious Arjuna Award, which adds up to explaining how focused she is.
She stands up holding this inspiratory position to so many young girls out there who are
afraid to step out, who are willing to fight against the odds put up by the society. She is that
individual along with her team who outstand the crumbling myth that women aren’t meant
for the physical work, or the field work, or any other manly work.

The deal came about on the back of an impressive showing during India's tour of Australia in January 2016, where she made a 31-ball 46 to script India’s highest-ever T20 chase. In June 2017, she became the first Indian to sign with Surrey Stars in ECB’s Kia Super League. Since then she has been at the center of advertisement campaigns, endorsements and central contracts.
She swears by her idol Virender Sehwag’s mantra of ‘see ball, hit ball.’ She represents the

Her century against England at the World Cup, albeit in a losing cause, earned her plaudits from opposition captain Charlotte Edwards. Her career graph since has skyrocketed since. In April 2013, she was handed the captaincy when Mithali Raj was rested for the limited-overs series against Bangladesh, making it clear that she is the one in waiting for the job. In November 2016, she replaced Raj as captain of the T20 team for the series against West Indies.
Punjab had offered the DSP post to her in July last following her outstanding performance in
the Women’s World Cup 2017. She yet again defies yet another saying, “not all heroes wear
capes, some where the colour of their country and uniforms too.”
She in true terms inspiring what is known as the better half of creation, “WOMEN.”
