An American Girl Who Loves Cricket? The Story Behind That Filmy Cricket Girl

by Creative Nexus 2023 03 Jan 2024

By Roshni Chasmawala

The most frequent question I get is, “Why are you into cricket?” It seems that my passion for cricket always surprises people. Perhaps it's because I'm a girl or perhaps because I was born and raised in the United States.

Bollywood movies have played a significant role in my fascination for cricket. Scenes like the one in Khabhi Khushi Khabhi Ghaam, where Hrithik Roshan hits a six, have deeply influenced my interest in the sport.

In America, we have gym class every day up until the 12th grade. I've always wondered why we never played cricket during gym class, considering my love for the sport.

My first experience with live cricket was during a trip to India when I was 8 years old. Witnessing street cricket for the first time felt like love at first sight. While I initially had limited exposure to international cricket, my interest grew significantly by 2011.

2015 marked a turning point for me when cricket became an integral part of my life. I became deeply involved with various cricket leagues and teams in America, helping to promote the sport and educate others about its rules.

My vision is to see cricket flourish in America, becoming as popular as other major sports like NFL, NBA, or MLB. I envision a future where cricket is taught in elementary schools and has varsity teams across colleges.

My Connection with Freebowler

In February, I attended Hotstar’s Cricfest, where I had the opportunity to experience cricket in a festival-like setting. I was particularly fascinated by Freebowler’s innovative Superthrower product. I admire the founders' dedication and am eager to support its growth in the cricket community.
