Wonderful creations and some legendary revolutions take time, but when they do the whole universe conspires in making that one dream, something you are living. Women, have been an extraordinary example of such a revolution. From fighting for social justice and equality to becoming a synonym of power and illumination, they have forced the universe to bend and conspire on to their feet by the only dream of theirs, to fly! When one truly deserves something and when they put their heart and soul into something, the whole universe conspires to help you achieve that. Women are not known for what they can do as much as a man can, it is what they can do and a man cannot and how they put in their everything to make the world achieve what they were not able to ever.
For some women it is the post of CEO in an MNC, for some to be a master chef but for some, the measure of their lifetimes is not seven, but 22, the stretch of 22 yards. The field may vary, but the determination surely remains the same, and they simply don’t write or read out stories, they make them! And bringing these stories to life and to enlighten millions of women out there, the medium is initiated by a wonderful and extraordinary platform – SHEROES. Bringing out the stories and creating communities of these SHEROES. It is much more than just a social networking platform designed solely for women, it is an opportunity, a runway to millions of careers and the one place where women talk, grow and flourish and support each other to reach greatest of heights! A team of highly dedicated women, and a bundle of communities on health, relationships, achievements and various other life-related talks! In about 5 years, they focus on increasing this community of women to 100 Million! Having won various awards in the “Social and Economic empowerment” category, SHEROES focuses on weaving down millions of beautiful stories by these extremely inspiring women.
TEAM FEMALE CRICKET is extremely proud and excited to have associated with SHEROES and to encourage, motivate and help these super human beings to climb the ladders in the world of cricket!

An initiative where the whole roadmap to women’s cricket would be laid down and the questions of all the curious cricketing minds shall find their answers.

TEAM FEMALE CRICKET and SHEROES, an association that shall have a fruitful and inspiring journey for years to come and we at Female Cricket focus on everything we can put in and give out to these young girls and women so that someday, and that too real soon, every single person out there, no matter which gender they belong to come out with gleamed up eyes and say “That person right there, is my SHERO and I want to be her!”
The 22 Yard stretch that molded me, is what I hold sacred. A cricketer weaving life’s innings into words. A Rohit Sharma Admirer always. I believe writing and cricket aren’t passions, but ways of life, so truly living the dream!
