Karnataka batter Vrinda Dinesh was bought by UP Warriorz for a whopping Rs 1.3 crore, briefly making her the most expensive uncapped player in the history of the Women’s Premier League. She was then overtaken by compatriot Kashvee Gautam who fetched a price of Rs. 2 crore from Gujarat Giants.

Vrinda is known for her power hitting skills and recently featured in the India A set-up which took on England A in three T20s. She was part of the U-23 squad which won the ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup in Hong Kong after coming in as an injury replacement for injured pacer S Yashasri.

Earlier in 2023, Vrinda was prolific with the bat for Karnataka in the Senior Women’s One-Day competition, finishing as the third-highest run getter in the tournament with 477 runs in 11 innings.
