Young local cricketer hopes to leave New Zealand stumped
Lincolnshire cricketer, India Freeman is embarking on the journey of a lifetime this October. Chattertons Solicitors are proud to support this journey which she hopes is the beginning of her road to becoming part of the England Women’s Cricket Team.
Sixteen year old India has been selected to represent England as part of the under 20 girls team at the Indoor Cricket World Cup which will take place in New Zealand later this year. Having taken up cricket only four years ago India is now focusing on a career in the sport and trains vigorously to follow her dreams.
India plays for two different teams at county level, Captaining the U17’s whilst also playing for Sleaford as part of the under 17’s team . On top of this she also joins the Sleaford Sunday 1st Team as the only female to play alongside the adult men. She travels to Leicester, Derby and Bristol to attend intensive training sessions and over the next two months India will be training for an extra ten hours a week as she prepares to travel to New Zealand.
But it doesn’t stop there! India travels to Clifton in Nottinghamshire to play in the Midlands Ladies Division 1 League and all this is alongside completing her education at Kesteven and Sleaford High School. India also finds time in her busy schedule to take part in friendly games between Chattertons and other local businesses, it is safe to say she is a valuable asset to the team!
As one of 12 girls selected to play in New Zealand India will take up her usual position as wicket keeper but is also a skilled batter and bowler. India hopes to follow in the footsteps of Lincolnshire’s Aran Brindle who has recently retired from the England Women’s Cricket Team.
Flying out to Wellington, New Zealand on 10th October Chattertons would like to wish India and the rest of her team the best of luck and hope to see her continue her journey to the top of the cricketing world.
