Anisa followed her sister Aneeqa into the junior ranks when she joined us at the age of 10, originally playing in the softball side. She transitioned into hardball cricket very well and became a leading all-rounder in our junior sides for several years.
It was primarily as a bowler that she moved up to the seniors as soon as she turned 13, and in 2015 she played four games for the 2s as we won the Hampshire League. Anisa was in the HP under 16 side that lifted the Hampshire Cup in 2014, and captained our under 16s to the league title three years later. She has scored more runs in junior cricket than any other HP player, and only her sister has taken more wickets.
Always a mainstay of the Hampshire age group sides Anisa established herself in our 2nd X1, and by 2018 she had moved up to opening the bowling in the 1s, with her ability to swing the ball proving a real asset. She was part of the Southern Premier League title winning side in 2019. Although primarily a bowler, Anisa has contributed many runs, especially in her early years, but it is her innings of 5 not out at Finchley in 2019 (click here to read more about this memorable match) that will probably be remembered most – think Jack Leach in the same year!
Anisa is also a regular indoor player and worked her way up into the A team by 2017. A fantastic servant to the club despite her tender years, Anisa has already passed 100 games for us, being both the youngest and quickest to do so.
She is now a student at Brunel University but we are hopeful that she will still be able to commit to her cricket, and further enhance her all-round skills.
