How different is the IPL from other formats?

IPL is a T20 franchise tournament combining cricket and Bollywood to offer entertainment.

Are you a frequent visitor to India?

I have played here before with England and worked on Extraaa Innings T20.

How does it feel to be on the glamorous side of cricket?

It’s fun, but it’s important to remember I am here because I’ve played the game. It’s great if I can add a bit of glamour too.

How is it to be the only girl cricketer in a gang of guys?

I have always enjoyed male company, which has probably stemmed from playing in boys/men’s teams while growing up. The guys on the show are very supportive and I enjoy the banter.

Does the perception that women add glamour bother you?

Not really, that goes with the IPL.

Do you feel it affects longer forms of cricket?

T20 is fast-paced and a wonderful vehicle to attract wider audience....
