Bio:

In the first match of the second edition of the WPL between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians were chasing 172 against Delhi Capitals. Needing 12 runs to win off the last over, Alice Capsey removed Pooja Vastrakar and Harmanpreet Kaur in the span of five deliveries, leaving MI needing five runs off the last ball. In walked debutant Sajeevan Sajana. Capsey bowled into the slot, and Sajana came down to smash it over the fence for six runs.

Sajana’s move to cricket came quite late. In school, she dabbled in athletics, kho-kho, javelin, and shot put, among other sports. She is the second player from the Kurichiya tribe, a community in Wayanad, to feature in the WPL. The right-hand batter went unsold in the first edition of the WPL. Sajana was one of those players who gave trials for all five WPL teams. Her journey in the game wasn’t always a bed of roses; however, she always managed to find a way to overcome adversities with a big smile.

In the nine games she played for Mumbai Indians in the second edition, she scored 87 runs at a strike rate close to 160, averaging 29. She made her debut for India in the series against Bangladesh. Although she made her debut at the age of 30, age is just a number for Sajana.
