Poonam Yadav

She may be all of 4 feet and 11 inches, but Poonam Yadav stands tall when it comes to strengthening Indian women’s cricket team’s spin attack.

The 27-year-old leggie from Agra, Poonam is the leading wicket-taker across men's and women's T20Is this year, with 35 scalps.

With 53 ODI and 69 T20 wickets in her kitty, Poonam has turned into India’s most effective spinner in the shorter format of the game and after a successful year, she hopes to keep the momentum going.

Armed with a cunningly low release point, coupled with some deceptive variations up her sleeve, Poonam confuses even the craftiest of batters.
