Gulshan
Profile

Gulshan Sharma is an uncomplicated batswoman. Batting in the top order, Gulshan strokes the ball especially well through the offside. She is comfortable against the ball pitched short and plays the cut shot particularly well. She was once injured by a rising delivery while playing a mediumpacer and since then always wears a helmet while batting. Batting with a helmet on is a rarity in Indian women's cricket. Don't let that fool you however, Gulshan neither fears mediumpacers nor is intimidated by them. Although she did not enjoy a good run of form in the CricInfo Rani Jhansi tournament earlier this year, she has been picked to play for India. This speaks volumes of the selectors' faith in her ability. (Anand Vasu )
