WPL: I am looking to learn and embrace as much as I can, says Tara Norris | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: American fast bowler Tara Norris is looking forward to picking the brains of the best in the business at the inaugural Women’s Premier League to be held later this month in Mumbai.
Norris is the only player from an associate nation in the WPL.
“There are quite a few world-class players and luckily I’ll get to train with some of them and hopefully play against a few of them. I am looking to learn and embrace as much as I can,” she said in a statement issued by her franchise. “Also, I have never been to India before. I will have to learn about the conditions and the climate here.”

Norris, who has taken four wickets in five T20Is, was acquired by the Delhi Capitals for Rs 10 lakh in last month’s WPL auction.
Norris also said that she wants to make associate nations proud with her performances in WPL.
“I definitely want to make all the associate nations proud. I have a voice for those players. A lot of girls struggle with funding and facilities. I want to raise awareness for the associates and hopefully next year, more players will be involved.

“I was really surprised and honoured to be picked not only as a USA cricketer but as a representative of the Associate Nations as well,” she said.
The WPL is scheduled to be held from March 4 to 26.
Delhi Capitals will open their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Brabourne Stadium on March 5.
