Rishitha Rajith, 15, has been named by UAE in their squad for the upcoming Women’s Asia Cup tournament. Right-arm seamer Rajith will be performing at the Asia Cup T20I tournament, starting later this week in Bangladesh. Rishitha’s elder sisters Rithika and Rinitha failed to create their places in the squad this time around, but they have been a part of UAE squad for T20 World Cup qualifier last week.
Cricket website Cricinfo reported that another teenager, Mahika Gaur, who was with Manchester Originals in the women’s Hundred earlier this year, is also part of the 15-member side. The team will be led by Chaya Mughal.
