Today’s guest is a professional cricketer, a mentor of ours and the head of female cricket at Cricket Mentoring and someone who has become a friend over the past few years.
Bhavi Devchand is currently contracted with Victoria and is training and rubbing shoulders on a daily basis with some of the world’s best cricketers including Elysse Perry and Australian captain Meg Lanning. While she’s living her dream, it certainly has been an easy run and she’s had her fair share of setbacks and disappointment.
As one of our mentors, I probably should have shared Bhavi’s story a long time ago but had I done so, we wouldn’t have got the last 15 months of her story, which as she says, has been some of the best and worst times in her life. The setbacks she faced, forced her to step out of her comfort zone, which has resulted in some of her biggest growth as a person, which she shares with us throughout this podcast.
This is an awesome story of challenging yourself and getting out of your comfort zone as well as going back to why you started pursuing cricket...cause you love it. I have no doubt this episode will give aspiring cricketers hope that anything is possible and hopefully it inspires a young boy or girl somewhere in the world, to chase their dreams despite the obstacles that you face.
Lets get into it.
