WPL weekly star-tracker (Jun 10): Sajana’s super rise, and gearing up for Melie vs NSB

By Mumbai Indians

In a rather quiet week in women’s cricket and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup grabbing all eyeballs, Sajana Sajeevan, the runaway star from the 2024 WPL season, still managed to grab headlines. Read along..

The rise and the further rise of Sajana Sajeevan

The big-hitting Sajana, who’s already a part of India’s T20I squad against the visiting South Africans, was named in the 15-member Board President XI squad in the practice game ahead of the series. The one-day game will be played on June 13, 2024 in Bengaluru ahead of the three-match ODI series, starting on June 16, 2024. Oh it’s been heartwarming to see her growth in the last few months. Onto bigger things, Sajana!  



Two of the greatest all-rounders in current cricket, two of Mumbai Indians’ most consistent performers, and two serious world beaters, who on their day can do everything and steal matches from nowhere, are all set to clash. Amelia Kerr vs Nat Sciver-Brunt, over three ODIs and five T20Is as the White Ferns tour England from June 26, 2024 to July 17, 2024. So Melie Kerr has been named in the White Ferns squad, in what should be vital practice ahead of the all-important T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.
