Anesu Mushangwe: the rapid rise of an accidental cricketer

I'm not posting the whole article as it's a bit of a long read. It's a bloody good read though. Some of our male players could learn a thing or two about sacrifice, hard work, and development. This quote did stand out a bit to me.
"In Zimbabwe, nobody tried to change my bowling because I was mainly quite a consistent bowler and they didn't want to lose that.

"That was my strength, so they just let me be.

"It's been the same here (in Australia), but I'm also learning more about variations - changing my pace, changing my grip and that's the things I've started developing."
Kind of shows a little apathy on the Zim side. Yes, don't change a good thing, but can always add more to a players arsenal or develop that good thing a bit more.

Either way, she made her WBBL debut last night with figures of 1 for 21 in 3.4 overs. Also took two catches including a blinder (5 minute mark of the video)
