CricInfo Rani Jhansi Tournament, Apr 2000

Rani Jhansi Trophy: A Showcase of talent

The recently concluded CricInfo Rani Jhansi Trophy in Chennai threw up some good induvidual performances, not only from the international stars but also players who are knocking at the doors of national selection. Players like Seema Pujari, Smitha Harikrishna, Neetu Singh and Rumeli Dhar came out from the shadows and really showcased their talent.

Champions Air India, with internationals like Anju Jain, Anjum Chopra, and captain Purnima Rau in their ranks time and again made short work of the opposition. But off-spinner Seema Pujari was chiefly instrumental in laying the platform for an Air India win on more than one occasion. She showed a much wiser head on her shoulders when she gave the ball flight and extracted turn and bounce from the pitch to trouble the batswomen. [Report]
