Following Beth Mooney’s withdrawal from the inaugural Ladies’ Head Association due to a calf injury, Indian all-rounder Sneh Rana was given command of the Gujarat Monsters.
Sneh Rana, an India all-rounder, was appointed lead trainer of the Gujarat Beasts on Thursday after Beth Mooney’s calf injury prevented her from participating in the remainder of the inaugural Women’s Central Affiliation.
On March 4, at the DY Patil Stadium, the Australian suffered the injury while batting against the Mumbai Indians in the tournament’s opening match.
Mooney’s return to full fitness is likely to take four to six weeks.
“The first WPL season of the Adani Gujarat Giants was very exciting for me.” Mooney stated in a press release, “I am gutted to be missing the remainder of the season, but unfortunately, injuries are a part of the sport.”
“On the other hand, I’ll be there every day to support the group and carefully observe their exhibit from a distance.
I stated, “I’m looking forward to returning stronger, fitter, and with a lot more hunger next season,” despite the fact that I won’t be on the field for the remainder of the season.
Laura Wolvaardt was picked by the Gujarat Goliaths to succeed Mooney. Wolvaardt, a one-of-a-kind opener, recently helped South Africa win the 2023 Ladies’ Twenty20 World Cup.
Wolvaardt led South Africa to the T20 World Cup final, where they lost to Australia, with three half-centuries from six matches.
The way the Gujarat Monsters began the season is something I can’t help but notice. I am extremely grateful that you gave me the opportunity to participate in the WPL. “I can hardly hold back to get everything moving and anticipate meeting the group,” Wolvaardt stated.
Ashleigh Gardner, who is from Australia, will now be her deputy, and Rana, who is from India, will take over as commander.
The skipper, Beth Mooney, will be greatly missed. She was without a doubt one of the team members with the greatest adaptability. “We wish her a speedy recovery and I am sure she will make her mark in the upcoming season,” Gujarat Giants head coach Rachael Haynes stated.
We are pleased that Laura has joined the team, and the first WPL season looks like it will feature some of the best cricket.
At DY Patil Field on Walk 11, the Gujarat Goliaths will take on the Delhi Capitals.
Team: Sneh Rana, Laura Wolvaardt, Sophia Dunkley, Harleen Deol, S Meghana, Georgia Wareham, Mansi Joshi, Dayalan Hemalatha, Monica Patel, Tanuja Kanwer, Sushma Verma, Hurley Celebration, Ashwani Kumari, Parunika Sisodia, and Shabnam Shakil are the middle members of the Gujarat Goliaths.
