Who has been your greatest influence and motivator in your success in the field of your career? Quote, you live by.
I’ve always enjoyed watching Jonty Rhodes from a young age and that’s why I have number 8 on my South African playing top but as years went by I’ve realized that that my teammates motivate me to be the best I can because we fight together as one on that field and that inspires me and motivates me to play at the best of my ability to help us to get over the line every game. And off the field would be my mum and dad, they’ve been great role models in my life.

In the current pandemic situation, how do you keep yourself busy while staying at home?
I am still following a strict training schedule at home, going for runs when I can. I have been following a few TV Series and spending a lot of time with my dog. I have done a few home renovations to keep my mind busy and it has been a lot of fun.
In January 2020, you were named in South Africa’s squad for the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia. But with the current situation, where everything is being delayed, how are you coping up with that? Training routine you follow.
We still have a SA training program that we follow and log our hours with our trainer. It is important to keep busy during this time as it is really easy to lose all of the hard work you put in before the lockdown. Especially things like fitness and muscle toning.
What according to you are the top qualities needed in a player to succeed in a team sport like cricket?
You need to be humble, cricket is a team sport and you can be the most talented player – but you need the other 10 girls on that park to make your contribution worthwhile. You need to be selfless, have great focus, be mentally strong and be a very hard worker. Because in the same breathe- you can be the one player who brings down the whole team if you are not committed to the cause.
