Right hand Bat
Wicketkeeper-batter Karuna Jain made an instant impression on debut in 2004, scoring 68 not out against West Indies. She was just the fifth Indian woman to make a fifty on ODI debut.
Jain was part of the 2005 Women's World Cup squad - where India finished runners-up - as a back-up wicketkeeper. That same year, she helped India to a 4-1 series win against England, and her century in the final game of that series - one of the highlights of her career - made her the second-youngest Indian woman at the time to score a hundred after Mithali Raj. Between those two senior events, she captained a Young India side on a tour to Pakistan.
Jain went go on to play the Women's World Cup in 2013 and the Women's T20 World Cup in 2014, representing India in 44 ODIs, five Tests and nine T20Is between 2004 and 2014. She finished with the third most dismissals - 58 - for an India wicketkeeper in women's ODIs.
