Chandigarh Girl, Taniya Bhatia Received Her India Cap And We are Celebrating

Taniya Bhatia has received her maiden India call and boy, are we proud of her! The Chandigarh girl, barely 20-years old, will don the Indian colours as the wicket-keeper for the three-match ODI series in South Africa starting from February 5. In the process, she has become the first woman cricketer from the city to make it to the national side.

On Wednesday, when she landed at the IGI Airport in New Delhi, she found out that her phone was flooded with a horde of congratulatory messages. She had just returned from Indore to join the Punjab team. She was scheduled to take part in the T20 Senior Women’s Cricket League in Chennai, but the call changed the scenario.

The daughter of a bank manager, an ecstatic Tanya has come a long way overcoming many hurdles on the way. She feels she has finally got a chance to showcase her capabilities in a foreign venue and cement her place in the national side.
