The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) just revealed the teams for the forthcoming 19th Asian Games, which will take place later this year between September and October. While some players advanced through the ranks to play for both the men’s and women’s national teams. When the India Women’s Squad was announced for the prestigious tournament, numerous athletes saw their dreams come true.
However, one player who stood out during the first Women’s Premier League (WPL) had been left out of Bangladesh’s visit. Saika Ishaque, who bowled brilliantly in the major league, has finally received some good news. The forthcoming Asian Games may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for Ishaque, as she has been nominated as a standby player for the India Women’s squad, which will compete in China.
Similarly, Saika’s coach, Shibsagar Singh, who helped the willy spinner in her early days, expressed his joy at the good news. Shibsagar feels Saika has moved closer to wearing the India shirt as a result of this. Furthermore, he claimed that the Bengal spinner has been focusing on increasing her fitness and bowling skills.
“She has definitely advanced in her career after being selected as a standby player for the Asian Games, but she is still working extremely hard to make the team. She’s working hard on her fitness and bowling drills,” Singh told News18 CricketNext.
“As I previously stated, she has been focusing on both her fitness and her bowling. The level of fitness has undoubtedly improved. Talking especially about the exercises, which involve jogging, sprint running, and a variety of other activities. She is working extremely hard,” Shibsagar added.
Saika Ishaque became an important component in MI Women’s WPL 2023
Meanwhile, Saika Ishaque got 15 wickets in 10 games for the Mumbai Indians Women (MI-W) under Harmanpreet Kaur’s captaincy during her WPL spell. As a consequence, the spinner’s confidence has grown, and she feels she is meant to play at the international level and will soon represent India’s Women’s squad. As a result, she continues to work hard every day, as instructed by her instructor.
“She also has a strong desire to succeed and play at the highest level, and she is willing to put in the effort. Even when we talk, I remind her that this is only the beginning, that you have a long way to go and that you have to work on your talents every single day,” he said of Saika Ishaque’s pick.
