Sanjida’s photos, which became viral on social media playing a cover drive and a pull shot and gave all cricket-lovers couple goals. Coming out with an out of the box idea, the woman cricketer gave the International Cricket Council (ICC) the opportunity to tweet the pictures: “Dress, jewellery, cricketer bat. Wedding photoshoots for cricketers be like,”.
