New rules in IPL 2023: Teams to name final playing XI after toss; penalty for unfair movement by keeper
Women's Premier League (WPL) auctions are currently the most talked about topic. The auction began on Monday that made several top women cricketers millionaires overnight. India’s left-handed opener Smriti Mandhana stole the show with the highest bid at the inaugural auctions.
While the auction bid is still underway, India’s Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar has showered praises on a young girl for her batting skill.

On Tuesday, Master Blaster Sachin shared a video on social media that shows a young village girl playing cricket along with several boys. In the video, the girl in a salwar is seen holding the bat and taking her position. She faces the bowler at ease and hits the ball like a pro.
The girl plays amazing strokes all round the wicket.
The cricket legend received the video via WhatsApp and shared it with a caption reading: “Kal hi toh auction hua.. aur aaj match bhi shuru? Kya baat hai. Really enjoyed your batting”

Even, fans of Sachin and social media users seem to have enjoyed the pro shots from the young girl.
Sachin Tendulkar is often dubbed the ‘God of Cricket’ by his fans and admirers for the phenomenal records he set throughout his career. With a long career spanning from 1989 to 2013, he also holds the record of the highest aggregate run scorer, highest number of matches played, and highest number of half centuries and centuries.
Such praise coming from the cricket legend himself is certainly a great achievement for the girl, isn’t it!
Her batting skills and passion for cricket worked as wonder.
Rajasthan BJP President Satish Poonia sent a cricket kit to the girl after her video went viral where she could be seen hitting sixes and fours while playing cricket barefoot on a sandy field.
The young girl has been identified as Mumal Mehar, a Class 8 student in Barmer district.
Poonia spoke to Mumal over phone and urged her to further sharpen her skills.
"I pray to god that you always keep moving forward and play in Indian women's cricket team some day," he said.
