Early and personal life

Mandhana was born on 18 July 1996 in Mumbai to Smita and Shrinivas Mandhana in a Marwari family.

When she was two, the family moved to Madhavnagar, Sangli in Maharastra, where she completed her schooling. Both her father and brother, Shravan, played cricket at the district-level, for Sangli. She was inspired to take up cricket after watching her brother play at the Maharashtra state Under-16s tournaments. At the age of nine, she was selected for Maharashtra's Under-15 team. At eleven, she was picked for the Maharashtra Under-19s team.

Mandhana's family is closely involved in her cricketing activities. Her father Shrinivas, a chemical distributor, takes care of her cricket program, her mother Smita is in charge of her diet, clothing and other organizational aspects, and her brother Shravan still bowls to her in the nets.


After making her One Day International debut in 2013 in a match against Bangladesh, Mandhana made her Test debut in August 2014 against England at Wormsley Park. She helped her team win the match by scoring 22 and 51 in her first and second innings, respectively.

Rise to Glory

In the second ODI game of India's tour of Australia in 2016 at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart, Mandhana scored her maiden international hundred (102 off 109 balls) but the match ended in a losing cause for India. Mandhana was also the only Indian player to be named to the ICC Women's Team of the Year 2016.

Mandhana came into the team for the 2017 World Cup after recovering from an injury she sustained, an anterior cruciate ligament rupture, during her time at the WBBL in January that year. In her five-month recovery period, she missed the World Cup Qualifier and the Quadrangular Series in South Africa. She began the World Cup with a 90 against England in Derby, in the first of the group matches. She helped her team win by 35 runs and was named the player of the match.[18] followed by her second hundred in a One Day International against West Indies (106*).

Club career

In September 2016, Mandhana signed up a one-year deal with Brisbane Heat for the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) along with Harmanpreet Kaur and became one of the first two Indians to be signed up for the League. Playing against Melbourne Renegades in January 2017, she fell awkwardly while fielding after bowling the final ball of her over hurting one of her knees which ruled her out of the rest of the tournament. She ended that season after scoring 89 runs in 12 innings.

In June 2018, Mandhana signed for Kia Super League defending champions Western Storm and became the first Indian to play in this league.
