Shikha Pandey Complete Bio & Career

Shikha Pandey was born and raised in Karimnagar. She was a bright student and had to choose between studies and cricket. She initially chose studies but then realised that she wants to be a cricketer. She id her schooling under the Central Board of Secondary Education, India. At the age of 15, she became the first player affiliated with state board to represent India. She had to juggle cricket and college, where she would spend her morning doing gym sessions and academic work, and her afternoons would include a 12km journey to Mapusa so she could train under Nitin Vernekar, former Goa cricketer and Sports Authority of Goa coach. However, she did not let her focus on game affect her academic performance. She particularly credits Ujwala Phadte, her lecturer in Applied Mathematics for helping her through out this phase and making sure her grades were not inversely proportional to her on-field performance.

At the age of 15, Pandey was selected to play for Goa in 2004. Later at the age of 17 for the 2007–08 domestic season, she was selected to play for Goa's Women Senior State Side. In the inter-state two-day tournament, Rani Jhansi Trophy, she picked up a four-wicket haul. This was also her Goa senior women's debut. Thirushi Kamini, then already an Indian international, was her first wicket which was a caught-and-bowled. What fast-tracked her selection into the zonal squad the same season was her scoring three half-centuries for the Goa Under-19 side. She made her test debut in 2014 and soon started playing all 3 formats. She then continued playing for India and played in all the world cups since then.
