- Indrani Roy is an Indian cricketer who is known for being bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs. 10 lakhs in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) auction held on 13 February 2023.
- She was born into a Bengali family.
- She was interested in sports since childhood but was unsure if she wanted to play cricket.
- When she was in class 8, one day while she was going for her tuition, she saw a female cricketer going to practice and that is when she realized that the cricket coaching centre was near her home. The next day, she went there, played cricket for the first time and developed an interest in the game.
- She started playing cricket at the age of 15. She played cricket for a year but was stopped by her father because she was not scoring good grades in school. So, she quit cricket for two years. Even though she was not playing, she would often search for cricket coaching centres where girls were trained.
- She used to play with boys who were part of the state and first-division teams which helped her improve her game a lot.
- In an interview, she said that she gained a lot of confidence by playing the JPL (Jharkhand Premier League) organised by the Jharkhand State Cricket Association before she played the Women’s Senior One Day Trophy.
- In the 2019–20 Women’s Senior One Day Trophy, she scored her first century in a one-day match and was not out on 132 runs. In the tournament, her performance helped Jharkhand to reach the semi-final, but the competition was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- She was selected by the Bengal U-19 team in 2014 and played for them for four years and won the national championship in the 2014-15 season.
- In 2017, she joined the Jharkhand Women’s team. In an interview, she said that when she was a batter in the Bengal junior team, she got a lot of opportunities to show her skills, but as a wicketkeeper, she was not able to show her talent because there were many keepers in the team, so, she changed her team from Bengal to Jharkhand. She played in Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) inter-district tournaments for Bokaro.
