It was a historic day for young Indian players as Gautam, along with Vrinda Dinesh, who joined UP Warriorz for Rs 1.30 crore. While becoming the most expensive uncapped player in the history of WPL, she also became the joint-most expensive player in the WPL 2024 auction.

She joined Australia all-rounder Annabel Sutherland to become the most expensive player sold in the 2024 WPL auction. Sutherland joined Delhi Capitals for Rs 2 crore after a bidding war with Mumbai Indians.

Kashvee, the fast-bowling all-rounder is causing a storm in the world of women’s cricket. Despite her young age of just 20, she has already grasped records in the women’s circuit. Playing in the women’s domestic U19 competition, recorded a hat-trick for her team Chandigarh against their rivals, Arunachal Pradesh in a thrilling one-day match.

The hat-trick highlighted Kashvee’s unrivalled bowling prowess and her ability to deliver under high-pressure situations – reflecting a maturity and talent that transcends her nominal years in the sport.

Kashvee’s exceptional record doesn’t stop at the domestic level. In the Women’s Senior T20 Trophy 2023, she demonstrated her impeccable bowling skills by bagging 12 wickets in just seven matches. Not only did she scalp a plethora of wickets but she accomplished it with a stingy economy rate of just 4.14 runs per over – a testament to her defensive bowling skills and ability to maintain composure in fast-paced T20 cricket.

Further adding to her rapidly growing reputation on the international stage, Kashvee was selected to participate in the prestigious Hong Kong ACC Emerging tournament.
