KYNA VEDHASINGHE SHINES IN DOHA REPRESENTING UAE FOR THE 6TH CONSECUTIVE TIME
Kyna, a product of Desert Cubs Cricket Academy was impressive with her talented batting skills this time during the tour in December 2015, especially when she was given an opportunity to open against the Oman team. She played a sparkling innings of 62 runs off 48 balls. This earned her the award for ‘Player of the Match’.
The highlight of the finals again, was exciting for UAE when they lost 5 wickets chasing a very small total of 47 runs in 20 overs. It was Kyna who managed to stick on and score the winning four for UAE.
Kyna is a growing youngster who has set her clear directions in playing the game of Cricket till she reaches the top and has been a keen follower of the game from the age of 11.
She has toured Australia, United Kingdom, Sri Lanka and Oman with Desert Cubs where she has enjoyed her Cricket in different conditions. She has also toured Kuwait (Twice), Thailand, Doha, and Oman with the UAE National Women’s Team.
Kyna is an all-rounder and she also earned the ‘Player of the Finals’ for the Dubai Cricket Council organized tournament which took place before the tour of Doha where she represented the ICC Team (Chief guest Mr. Farooq Amin).
She completed her ICC Level 1 Coaching Certification at the age of 19 and looks forward to understanding the game more in detail to add value to budding female cricketers in UAE.
