India women’s young batter Priya Punia has decided to make a state switch once again in her career. After playing just one domestic season, she is set to move out of Rajasthan, where she moved from Delhi last year.
It is reported that the 24-year-old batter isn’t happy with the Rajasthan Cricket Association as she was allegedly mistreated by the state board.
Surender Punia, the cricketer’s father, revealed that the RCA failed to keep up with their promises. It is also learned that RCA didn’t make any efforts in contacting the batter or listening to her issues.
Priya Punia not happy with RCA:
“The promises made by the RCA while hiring Priya’s services as a professional were not kept. In the last few days when I tried getting in touch with RCA office bearers, some did not take my call and others avoided talking about the problems we were facing with the association,” Priya Punia’s father was quoted by The Times of India as saying.
While the right-hander’s decision to move out of Rajasthan is final, she is yet to announce where she will transfer to for the upcoming season.
Priya Punia has featured in 7 ODIs and 3 T20Is so far for India. In ODIs, she has scored 225 runs at an average of 37.5. Her last game came in March earlier in the year against South Africa; she was then dropped from the in matches against England, though she remains in the setup.
Losing her would be a blow for Rajasthan as the 24-year-old has impressive numbers in the domestic circuit.
