Cricket legend and head coach of the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Brian Lara, felicitated Trisha at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium (Uppal) on the 13th of May. Brian Lara presented a plaque to Trisha and said, “It is wonderful to see your dream fulfilled representing India in a World Cup. I too had similar dreams. Best wishes to you.

“You are from Hyderabad. I would keep following your career and hope you will make it big and be part of our family.” Trisha was thrilled to receive such a prestigious honor in front of her home crowd and aims to live up to expectations after this morale-boosting moment.

Quoting Trisha, “I never dreamt of this kind of experience. Only yesterday I was told about this. I was really excited and hope to live upto the expectations. Honestly, it is a great moment. These are the kind of things which lift your morale and help you realise the bigger dreams. It is great to be honoured in front of the home crowd, parents and my coach.”

Trisha expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) for the felicitation. It truly was remarkable for the SRH and the HCA to have done so and particularly because it came months after India’s Under-19 World Cup triumph.

At the tender age of 19, Trisha’s youth belies the wealth of experience she possesses. Her journey in cricket began at the age of 8 when she joined the state Under-16 cricket team. Remarkably, by the time she turned 12, she was representing the Under-19s and Under-23s teams. Trisha then debuted for Hyderabad in the 2017-18 Senior Women’s T20 League.

Trisha, the versatile all-rounder, is a valuable asset to any team, showcasing both defensive and aggressive batting skills. She proved her mettle by top-scoring with 24 runs for India in the World Cup Final and is poised to return to cricket soon through a training camp at the National Cricket Academy, Banglore.
