Smriti Shriniwas Mandhana, also known as Smriti Mandhana is an Indian cricketer who plays for the Indian women’s national team. She is best known to be named as the Best Women’s International Cricketer by the Board of Control for Cricket in India in June 2018.

Smriti began her career right at the early age of 9, where she was selected in Maharashtra’s Under-15 team, and at the age of eleven, she was selected for the Maharashtra Under-19s team. Her first turning point in her cricket career came in October 2013 when she became the first Indian woman to achieve a double-hundred in a one-day game while playing for Maharashtra against Gujarat. She scored an unbeaten 224 off 150 balls in the West Zone Under-19 Tournament, at the Alembic Cricket Ground in Vadodara.

In September 2016, she was signed up for a one-year deal with Brisbane Heat for the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL), and also signed for Kia Super League defending champions Western Storm, becoming the first Indian to play in the league in June 2018.

At the International level too, Mandana has achieved great heights, where she was named in India’s squad for the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia in January 2020, and in May 2021, was named in India’s Test squad for their one-off match against England.
