Onika grew up watching cricket with her father and instantly fell in love with the sport. Her family had always supported her and encouraged her to pursue the game, especially her dad.

Onika and her brothers creatively looked for ways to play the sport, making do with anything that they could hit with a bat in their back yard. Eventually, she asked her father to help her join a club. Playing with her brothers is the foundation for her intense passion for the sport of cricket.

As a substitute for consistent outdoor matches in Jersey, Onika has taken her training indoors to stay in shape and focus on her fundamentals. While not ideal, she has found a way to prepare herself for the upcoming team trials.

Speaking at the Indianapolis trials, Onika explained how she feels the team is already in great position to make a run during their trip to Scotland. She is very excited for the future of Team USA and believes that team chemistry is already strong, even with such a short period of time together as a unit.
