Sri Lankan Shavindi had played against us for Guildford in 2018, but moved to university at Winchester and joined us in 2019.

In her first season she was in winning teams in the Hampshire League and Ashford 8s, and was in the party that travelled to Nantes at the end of the summer. ‘Shafingers’ (so nick-named because of her double-jointed digits) is primarily a bowler, but enjoys all aspects of the game and always plays with a smile.
