Anjum Chopra: We have a gameplan for each team (13 December 2000)

Anjum Chopra is undoubtedly one of the most stylish batswomen in the Indian team. Being a left hander adds more grace to her presence at the crease. A-no nonsense cricketer, Chopra learnt her cricket in India's capital, Delhi. Learning to play in conditions where every member of the team had to fight to hold their place, Chopra can be a picture of determination if she gets well set. Having played in matches and coaching camps with men cricketers, Chopra knows a thing or two about handling pressure situations. [More]

Anjum Chopra: I want to win the World Cup for India (5 October 2000)

Some people enjoy watching a mediumpacer jog in rhythmically, swing the ball and beat the batsmen. Others like watching an elegant left hander rock back and caress the ball through the covers. There's a third kind of cricket lover who is mesmerised by the fielder diving full length and plucking an unlikely catch out of the air. The one stop solution for all those fans is India's premier batswoman Anjum Chopra. She began her career as a mediumpacer and is now one of the best batswomen in the country. [More]

England fail tough test set by Chopra (9 July 1999)

According to India's coach, Anjum Chopra is more effective in Test matches than one-day cricket. After making a hundred in yesterday's game, her second successive match-winning innings, England can be forgiven for viewing the forthcoming Test match with some trepidation. Belying her coach's concerns about her scoring rate, Chopra hit a century off 127 balls, including 13 fours and many a classic shot, to give India victory in the match and the one-day series. [More]
