She is the perfect role model with her success stemming out of her sheer hard work, passion, and determination, despite many challenges in her playing career.

Sania is someone our young generation looks up to and she can motivate, and encourage our team as she herself has been an uber-competitive player who understands how to overcome challenges and handle pressure in various situations at the highest level of sports.

Her stature and gravitas as well as her attitude will inspire and bring the much-needed panache to transform the team with a Bold Personality.”

Indian women’s cricket has seen a tectonic shift with the Women’s Premier League, and I am really looking forward to being a part of this revolutionary pitch. RCB and its brand philosophy perfectly resonate with my vision and outlook as that’s how I have approached my playing career and it’s also how I see contributing to sports post my retirement.

RCB has been a popular team and a much-followed team in the IPL over the years. I am immensely happy to see them building a team for the Women’s Premier League as it will push women’s sports to new heights in the country, open new doors to women cricketers and help make sports the first career choice for young girls and young parents with a girl child.”
