The origin of Sindhuja's interest in cricket can be traced back to being encouraged to work on her fitness with her father at her brother's cricket practices. She became interested in the sport and eventually started playing with her brother's team.

Sindhuja would borrow his keeping gloves and practice by herself. For a long time, she was the only girl on an all-boys team, something she thinks was beneficial to her development as a player.

Sindhuja firmly believes that preparation and mental strength is more important than how physically gifted someone might be. She believes that if someone is prepared to play a game and is locked in, then the rest of the match will fall into place.

With this belief in mind, Sindhuja thinks that Team USA has a very good shot at being successful in the near future. She is excited by the focus, preparation, and bonding she has seen in the team. She knows Team USA must know what to do and be prepared, because that will be the difference between success and failure.
