It seems to be good days for women cricketers, as they are getting more attention after their heroics in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017. Just a few days after Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana sign a bat deal, their teammate “Deepti Sharma”, too bagged a similar endorsement contract with “SG (Sansparelis Greenlands)” which has been India’s largest and most trusted cricket gear manufacturer for the last several years. This is a great step from “SG” to support women’s Cricket and especially young cricketers like Deepti Sharma, which will help to improve her performance at the International level.
When she walks out to bat, in India’s forthcoming limited over series in South Africa, Sharma will be seen in SG gear. By signing the deal, she joins the list of star cricketers like Hardik Pandya and Cheteshwar Pujara who are also sponsored by SG. Other than Indian players, many international players are also associated with the brand, which includes star players like Evin Lewis, Shakib-al-Hasan and Shane Watson.
Deepti Sharma, a left-handed batswoman, is one of the main pillars of the Indian team and has represented India in the 2016 T20 World Cup and 2017 World Cup. She has established herself in the Indian team at a very small age. With her all-rounder abilities, she is an added advantage for whichever team she plays for.Not only her batting but her ability to bowl economically also helps the team to win the matches at crucial stages. In last year’s World Cup, she was named as a part of the ICC team of the Tournament alongside Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur. Prior to the World Cup, she slammed 188 runs against Ireland while opening the innings with Punam Raut, which also led to a record-breaking partnership of 320 runs. She was also the highest run-getter of 2017 in ODI cricket. It’s the consistent performances like this, that make her the perfect fit for any brand, and possibly the future of Indian cricket.
