The UP Warriorz, who have played two games in the 2023 Women’s Premier League, have added Indian batter Shivali Shinde to their squad. The position was vacated due to an injury suffered by all-rounder Laxmi Yadav during training.
“Playing in the WPL is a moment of immense pride for me. And my family is delighted that I have received this opportunity. I am looking forward to this stint and hope to pick up the tricks of the trade from some of the best cricketers in the business. Experiencing the electric atmosphere in the stadiums is something I am definitely looking forward to and I hope to be able to contribute in a substantial manner for the UP Warriorz,” Shivali said.

Shivali, 26, joined the squad on March 8 in Mumbai. She is from Maharashtra and has played for the state side as well as the India-A side in the Senior Women’s T20 Challenger Trophy. The opening batter, who is from Kolhapur, is one of the players to watch in the domestic circuit. She is also a quick scorer who can help set the tone for her team’s innings.
