Bio:

Born in Himachal Pradesh, Renuka Singh flaunts a tattoo of a father playing with his daughter on her bowling arm. Renuka’s success in cricket reflects her father’s dream. Growing up, she played cricket in village tournaments, often being the only girl participating in both morning and evening matches.

Her career gained momentum when she joined the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association’s residential academy in 2009. Later, Renuka played for Himachal Pradesh in the U-16 and U-19 teams. The medium pacer has a hat-trick to her name against Karnataka in a U-19 tournament in 2016.

Renuka made her T20I debut for India against Australia in 2021 after picking up nine wickets in the Senior One Day Trophy. She made her first appearance for the national side in the ODI format in 2022. She was part of the 2022 World Cup squad but unfortunately didn’t get a game. In the Commonwealth Games, where India finished as runners-up, Renuka was one of India’s key players, being the highest wicket-taker in the competition with 11 wickets in five matches. In 2022, she was honoured as the ICC Emerging Women’s Cricketer of the Year after claiming 40 wickets across 29 matches in both ODI and T20I formats. Following her rapid international success, she was picked by RCB in the first edition of the WPL. Despite being one of the top buys, she had only one wicket in six matches, making for a challenging campaign.

Renuka registered her best bowling figures in the shortest format against England, picking up a fifer, but it came in a losing cause. She became the first Indian—male or female—to register a five-wicket haul in the history of the World Cup.

Renuka Singh is undoubtedly one for the future, with her talent and determination paving the way for continued success.
