Profile

When Anjum Chopra is at the wicket it is difficult to keep memories of David Gower out of the mind. Batting left handed she has forced journalists to overuse the phrase 'lazy elegance.' She has been one of India's premier batswomen for a while now. Playing predominantly through the 'V' Chopra does not hesitate to come down the wicket to the spinners. Usually a slow starter, Chopra is all timing and hardly ever tries to tonk the ball. Equally comfortable on the off and on side Chopra can bat anywhere at the top of the order. When she went to England in mid 1999 her coach, Sudha Shah remarked that Chopra was a better suited to the longer version of the game. In the first and second one dayers played, Chopra came up with match winning innings including a sparkling century off 127 balls.
