Describe first exposure and experience with cricket: I remember those ubiquitous hollow yellow plastic stumps and bats showing up in Phys. Ed. class once or twice in elementary school. But I didn't really start learning how to play cricket until I was 16. I spent a number of days one summer watching one of my older brothers play cricket in the provincial summer games, and thought it looked like some fun. So, I started playing with my high school co-ed team the next spring, and then with the local women's team, Wicket Maidens, soon thereafter. It's been pretty near impossible to step away from cricket ever since. 

Personal highlight/favourite memory from playing for Canada:  The very fact that I am a woman playing cricket at all in Canada, let alone for Canada, has certainly made a great conversation starter many a time. But, without a doubt, the thing I'll remember most for years to come about playing cricket for Canada, is my team mates. It is the culmination of all the memories of training camps, tough games, gruelling workouts, and everything in between that is my favourite memory from playing for Canada.

Mikaela started learning to play cricket at the tender age of 5, it has been 12 years actively playing cricket state age for NSW and ACT in Australia, first grade cricket for the Northern District in sydney and at an international level for Canada. Mikaela is inspired by Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchirist and has been fortunate to train with the current and past Australian players. Mikaela’s biggest achievement was ICC MVP for Canada in the last series against the USA, also winning the Americas in 2009 in Florida & to be the 2012 Vice Captain for team Canada. As an all rounder,  she likes to contribute by batting, bowling & fielding well. I expect the ICC Americas to be a hotly contested in the T20 format and is excited by Canada’s opportunity. 

Monali has been playing competitive cricket for almost 6 years now. Her debut for Canada was at the age of 18.  Her inspiration for the game comes from Rahul Dravid, as I admire his patience and straight bat shots.

Describe first exposure and experience with cricket I showed up at Rideau Hall in Ottawa one evening and asked the guys practising if I could try it out.  I think it is fair to say that they were shocked.  It just progressed from there - over the weeks they saw I wasn't afraid of the ball, that I could catch and throw, and that I really was interested in the sport.  I ended up playing with the great bunch of guys at New Edinburgh Cricket Club, and they supported me all the way to the national team.

Personal highlight/favourite memory from playing for Canada Playing Argentina in our opening match in Florida in 2009.  Mona and I had settled in nicely batting and we were steadily chasing the Argentinians score.  We took it nice and easy and were totally in control.  It was a nice and relaxing start to a successful tournament.

Suthershini started playing cricket at the age of 26, only for a few years at the sport she brings with her positive attitude and self belief. Her biggest achievement is taking 5 wickets for 2 runs and to be the 2012 Captain for team Canada. Suthershini has played at the last ICC series for Canada against the USA. Inspired by Muttaiah Muralitharan, Arjuna Ranathunga, Sachin Tendulkar, Lara, Rahul Dravid, Wasim Akram. Winning the Tournament is the biggest expectation.
