Sakeena said the players couldn’t practice this year owing to unrest last year and said if the Cricketers would have practiced last year they would have performed even better and more players could have been selected as there is no dearth of women cricket talent in J&K.

She said if proper infrastructure is provided to the women Cricketers they will shine as they are not less than any other cricketer in the state.
