Kashvee Gautam's fight back 

During the WPL auctions last year, the right-arm seamer Kashvee Gautam went unsold. The young player didn't let the setback impact her game as she worked upon her pace and sought constant feedback from the team scouts. Although her performance in domestic cricket indicates consistency, she demonstrated her skills in this year's Women's T20 trophy by securing 12 wickets across seven matches, while sustaining an impressive economy rate of 4.14.
