Whether it was watching it on TV, playing in her backyard, or playing it in school, it was easy for Sam to become enveloped in cricket. When she came to the U.S. for high school, there was little opportunities for her to play, so she took up softball and played that instead.
Sam’s softball and cricket background has allowed her to refine some techniques that define the player she is today. She owes her coordination to these formative years playing softball and in 2011 she transitioned back to her first love of cricket. With this shared experience, Sam is excited to see this strong bond pay off for the team in the near future.
