Guwahati:  All-rounder Jintimani Kalita, who bagged Rs 10 lakh in the auction for the inaugural edition of Women’s Premier League (WPL) and joined the team Mumbai Indians, has said she would love to  use this ‘bigger platform’ to nurture her dream to play for India.

She is the first female cricketer from Assam to be auctioned in WPL.

“I knew that I have been performing well but was not sure if I would get the nod. I’m really happy and looking forward to the new challenges. I will give my best,” Jintimani told reporters as quoted by The Assam Tribune amid of well-wishers at her residence in Mangaldai on Tuesday.

“I know it’s not easy but that is my goal. I need to put more focus on my fitness and eventually, it will help me to improve my game overall. I understand the WPL is a bigger platform and I need to use it properly to reach to my destination which is to play for the national team,” she added.
