Mehak Fathima started playing the game seven months ago and as per the quotes in Indian Express, “Are you not teaching me because I am a girl?’ She had asked her father. That is when her father realised Mehak was interested in the game as well”, Fathima’s mother Khadeeja said.

Since then, she has been going for formal cricket training. Even, cricket runs in the family. Muneer, Fathima’s father, also claimed to have played for Calicut university when he was 13. And even her brother started playing with a bat and a ball at the tender age of 18 months.
