Prolific Indian batter Smriti Mandhana is recognized as one of the most prominent batters in the Indian women cricket. Top-order batter is currently ranked among the top-six women batters in both the formats of the white-ball cricket and have earned several laurels on the back of her brilliant batting performances.

In a year when Indian women cricketer stamped her authority in the world cricket by clinching silver in the maiden participation at Commonwealth Games 2022 and T20 Asia Cup 2022 title for the seventh time, the batter has added yet another feather to her cap. 

The 26-year-old has featured in the cover story of Vouge India December 2022 edition where she talked about her purpose and passion for the game. In her cover story, Mandhana  admitted that she found ‘Serena Williams and Alex Morgan’ very inspiring, and she always look up to them in terms of sports being impactful. “Serena Williams and Alex Morgan for how they changed the way people look at their sport. I find that really inspiring,” she was quoted in the Vouge.

The Indian woman batter brushed aside her comparison with former Indian skipper Virat Kohli as the woman cricketer claimed that she ‘does not like the comparison between men’s cricket and women’s cricket.’ 

“It’s just a different game. You don’t have to put us in the same category. Initially, when Tennis was developing as a sport, there were comparisons made between the serve rates of different players. Now it has reached to a point where Serena Williams is appreciated just as Roger Federer is in his own right. It's time for cricket to also reach that place,” Mandhana was quoted in Vouge India.

The Indian cricketer also lauded the efforts of the Board of Control for Cricket in India to bridge the equity gap between men’s and women’s cricket. “The efforts of those who played before us, and all of us put together as a community, have now made this possible. Imagine those ex-women cricketers, who even without getting much 30 ya 40 years ago, continued to play. They made our present reality possible,” Mandhana added.
