23 vie for eves’ squad

Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) has picked 23 senior women cricketers for a coaching camp to be held in Jamshedpur from October 9.

The players have been asked to report at the JSCA office on October 8.

“The bunch of players will be pruned to 15 after the conclusion of the camp. We have planned another camp before the selected players leave for Assam to play in the senior inter-state one-day championship. Jharkhand will take on Assam in the opening match on November 6,” a JSCA functionary told The Telegraph.

Ranchi has the maximum of nine players, followed by five from Bokaro and four from the steel city.

West Singhbhum and Simdega districts have two players each while Latehar has one representative.

While Anita Tigga, Anjana Dubey, Ginni Gita Kujur, Kavita Roy, Manorma Toppo, Neetu Singh, Seema Singh, Shahina P. Ashraf and Soma Sisodia hail from the state capital, Ashkamini, Kanaklata Kumari, Niharika Prasad, Rachana Srivastava and Shobha Kumari Thakur are from Bokaro.

Nishat Fatima, Reena Singh, Rinni Burman, Sabori Chatterjee (Jamshedpur), Anna Dung Dung, Roshni Ekka (Simdega), Kasturi Sinku, Sheela Boipai (West Singhbhum) and Reema Rani Tirkey (Latehar) will also go through the grind.

Some of the players for the upcoming camp have donned state jerseys in the last season.

Besides the one-day matches in Assam, the state outfit will also participate in the zonal Twenty20 inter-state tournament in Dhanbad from December 15 to 19 and the Under-19 inter-state championship in Ranchi from October 9 to 17.
