Thirush Kamini began playing cricket with her father when she was nine years old but soon moved to the Sports and Development Authority of Tamil Nadu for some professional coaching. Playing with boys, for a while, she kept wickets. But by 2002, Kamini had decided that leg spin was the way to go.
Kamini made a memorable debut at 16 in the Asia Cup in Jaipur when she took her career-best 3 for 19 against Pakistan. India won the tournament and Kamini won the player-of-the-tournament award for her eight wickets at 10.87. But against stronger opposition, picked for the Quadrangular tournament in Chennai in February-March 2007, Kamini got only one wicket in the in three games she played.
Her action is round arm and looks more like a legbreak bowler going round the wicket than over. On the Chepauk pitch, she got very little turn and her expensive spells meant that she did not always get to finish her quota of overs.

In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Stats highlights from the third ODI between Australia and Pakistan in Perth
How many players have scored centuries in their 99th and 101st Tests?
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
On the forthcoming tour of India, selectors will have to solve the No. 6 riddle, get the batting order right, and strike a good balance between pace and spin
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
