Henali Selected for Under 13s Girls Team
In this recent year, I started playing Cricket for Sir Jonathan North Community College and later joined Electricity Sports Cricket Club (ESCC). At my Cricket club, I performed to my highest standards and so they nominated me for a trial with the Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC) Under 13s Girls Cricket team. On Sunday 10 September 2017 I went along for my trial selection at Kirby Muxloe. We were split up into two teams so that the coaches would examine our skills in a game situation. My team batted first and we scored a total of 162 runs in 20 overs: I contributed 30 runs to the overall total. My team bowled next and we bowled the whole team out for 137 runs winning the game. I took 2 wickets.
I really enjoyed this experience and gained a lot of knowledge about cricket. A few days later I got an email saying I was selected for the winter practice at LCCC U13’s girls Cricket team. I would like to thank Ms. Lowther for encouraging me to play cricket and then helping me to take this forward to county level.
