WPL 2023: Sania Mirza Joins Royal Challengers Bangalore As Mentor For Women’s Team

Highlights:

  • Sania Mirza is excited to be part of the revolution that is taking place in Indian women’s cricket, and is looking forward to mentor the RCB Women’s team.
  • RCB had a successful outing at the WPL auction, acquiring star players such as Smriti Mandhana, Ellyse Perry, and Richa Ghosh.
  • Mirza’s last major was 2023 Australian Open where she made it to the mixed doubles final with Rohan Bopanna, ending her career on a high note.

Indian tennis legend Sania Mirza has been appointed as the mentor for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Women’s team ahead of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2023, marking a bold move for the franchise. Mirza, a six-time Grand Slam winner, most recently played at the 2023 Australian Open where she was the runner-up in the mixed doubles event alongside Rohan Bopanna.

Mirza reacted on her new role as mentor for the RCB women’s team, saying: “It is a pleasure for me to join the RCB women’s team as a mentor. Indian women’s cricket has seen a tectonic shift with the Women’s Premier League, and I am really looking forward to being a part of this revolutionary pitch. RCB and its brand philosophy perfectly resonates with my vision and outlook as that’s how I have approached my playing career and it’s also how I see contributing to sports post my retirement.”

According to the franchise, she is someone who the players can easily relate to and respond to in a team environment. RCB had a highly successful outing at the WPL auction, acquiring star players such as Smriti Mandhana, Ellyse Perry, and Richa Ghosh. The auction was a particularly special moment for Mandhana, who was bought for a record amount of Rs 3.4 crore.

Rajesh V Menon, Head and Vice President of Royal Challengers Bangalore, expressed his pleasure and honor at the appointment of Sania Mirza as the mentor for the RCB women’s team.

Her stature, gravitas, and attitude are expected to inspire and bring much-needed panache to transform the team with a bold personality.
